97 points "95-97pts. My favorite of this trio is the 370-case cuvee of 2009 Pinot Noir Clos du Ciel. Luc and Nicolas Morlet told me they were getting tiny grape bunches (weighing only 80 grams, and producing about 1 and ½ barrels per ton of fruit) because of the tiny berry size and high ratio of skin to juice. This exquisite, perfumed Pinot Noir offers aromas of graphite, sweet black cherries and black currants intermixed with hints of smoke and camphor, a generous, full-bodied mouthfeel, and super-impressive texture, purity, equilibrium and length. Drink this profound Pinot over the next decade. " Best 2011-2021
