Wine Spectator 89 points - A mix of fresh cherry and sweet oak marks this crisp red, turning lean and tight by the finish, where the tannins reign. Needs a little time. Best from 2015 through 2022. 10 cases imported.-BS  (Apr 30 2014)

Vinous 89 points - (from a mix of 25- and 40-year-old vines): Bright medium red. Cherry, redcurrant and underbrush aromas are lifted by a floral topnote. Silky on entry, then dense and firm in the middle, offering a lovely balance of fruits, spices and fresh acidity. Fairly full Beaune wine with a firmly tannic finish and a lingering spiciness. Like most of these premier crus, this will benefit from four or five years of bottle aging. 89-92 Points  (Jan 2013)

Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2011 Beaune 1er Cru Bressandes has a simple but well-defined bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit infused with cedar and a hint of rolled tobacco - masculine and correct. The palate is again, quite simple, but balanced with sharp red fruit and a slightly abrasive finish that cuts away too quickly. I suspect another twelve months in bottle will lend this Beaune a little more weight and harmony. Drink 2015-2022. (Oct 2013)

Mademoiselle Francoise Choppin delivered the property control over to Geoffrey (her nephew) and his wife Marie-Odile Choppin during the 1999 harvest and they have had full control since the 2000 vintage. With much diligent and hard work the estate has surged in quality from an already high level. This estate is widely considered one the finest red wine estates in Beaune. It is often the last estate to harvest demanding perfectly ripe skins and implements a severe green harvest every vintage. In 2000 the estate purchased a vibrating sorting table for an even stricter triage of the fruit that will be used. The estate now uses a pneumatic press and conducts a 3-4 day cold maceration prior to a 15-18 day fermentation in wooden vats. All of the vineyards owned are Premier Crus and include Aigrot, Bressandes, Cent Vignes, Toussaints, Teurons, Marconnets and Savigny Les Beaune Vergelesses La Bataillere.
