Wine Spectator 89 points - A medium-bodied version, offering cherry, currant and earth flavors. The tannins are a touch dry, upsetting the overall balance. Shows intensity and length. Best from 2015 through 2021. 150 cases imported.-BS  (Apr 30 2014)

Vinous 87 points - Good bright, deep red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, plum and tobacco. Juicy and firm on the palate, with the red berry and tobacco flavors supported by solid minerality. The tannins are a tad dry but essentially fine-grained. This vineyard suffered from the drought conditions during spring, noted Choppin de Janvry. 87-89 Points  (Jan 2013)

Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2011 Beaune 1er Cru Cents-Vignes has a pleasant, vanilla bouquet with plenty of plush red fruit: raspberry coulis and strawberry preserve. The oak feels nicely assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly herbaceous opening, however it is nicely focused with a touch of spice enlivening the structured finish. Give this Beaune another year in bottle to coalesce. Drink 2014-2019. (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.
