Wine Spectator: 92
"Has some ambitious flavors of new oak and toasted spice, plus appealing fruit. Wonderful opulence on the midpalate, delivering marzipan, lemon, toased bread character, and lots of spice on the honey-tasting finish. Will age, but nice now." (Jun 2002)

Stephen Tanzer: 90
"Aromas of soft citrus fruits, hazelnut, truffle and smoky, vanillin oak. Rich, sweet and gentle; in a rounder style than the basic village wine, with a bit more stuffing." (Oct 2001)

Wine Advocate: 87-89
"The 1999 Meursault Desiree exhibits flowers, apples, anise, and spices in its aromatic profile. Light to medium-bodied and satin-textured, this is a sexy, feminine, white fruit-flavored offering. Its soft and smooth personality leads to a lush finish. (Feb 2001)

Community (CellarTracker): ~90
