97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2020 Cornas Chaillot comes from a mix of lieux-dits (it's mostly Chaillot) as well as some younger vines. It's an incredible wine in its own right and certainly doesn't give much in terms quality to its big brother. Awesome aromatics of crème de cassis, violets, crushed stone, and bouquet garni-like notes all define the aromatics, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, and ultra-fine tannins. It's a touch more finesse-driven and elegant compared to the Reynard and should round into form with just 5-7 years of bottle age. This is legit awesome Cornas that will have 20-25 years of ultimate longevity. Drink: 2029-2045. (3/28/24)"

**** John Livingstone-Learmonth (The Cradle of The Rhône): "(Chaillot, Le Pigeonnier, clay influence, 1999 Syrah, used 228-litre cask) ****(*) dark robe; the nose is restrained, carries style in the fruit, tender blackberry with salt, pistachio-nutshells. The palate has a fusion of iron right through it, good flanks of dark berries, along with upbeat, live tannins, good energy. It holds very well, is bright, rocky, powdery, a fine frame. It’s go-go, a touch floral, carries real appeal. 25 years 2) (Tézier, E facing, very decomposed granite, young Syrah, 12 hl barrel) **** dark red-black tinted colour; the nose is sweet-toned, cosy, rather voluptuous, an air of blackberry, reduction. There’s a spot of noble Volatile Acidity on the palate, which bears a flavour of soaked black berry fruits, good, bendy tannins within, quite ripe ones. The exterior is cool, and there are floral notes. 23 years Oct 2021."
