17+/20 points Richard Hemming, MW (JancisRobinson.com): "Fragrant and tangy with delicious clarity and zip. Quite lean, but with good purity as well. The structure is ready to drink now, while the red fruit should open up well. Drink: 2022-2032. (1/11/19)"

Bertheau's Chambolle A.C. makes up nearly half the domaine's production and issues from various plots scattered around the village. Elevage for this cuvée is noteworthy for taking place entirely in old foudres rather than the traditional 228-liter pièces used for the rest of his production. He described it as glou-glou ("quaffable") when we met with him, which sells it a bit short. According to John Gilman, the entry-level Chambolle "always drink[s] beautifully with only a few years’ worth of bottle age, though it is always nicely structured at the same time and ages very gracefully...and it should most emphatically not be ignored in the search for the premier crus or the superb Bonnes Mares."
