92 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Bouland's 2018 Chiroubles bursts with aromas of ripe blackberries, red plums, violets and cracked black pepper. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with a succulent core of fruit, fine concentration and a long, lip-smacking finish. An especially gourmand rendition of this cuvée, it hails from a steep hillside site and is matured in tank. Drink: 2019-2033. (Aug 2019)"
91 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A restrained and very pretty nose shyly offers up cool aromas of both red and dark currant, soft earth and a whiff of spice nuances that include a pepper component. The delicious and relatively refined middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality before concluding in a lingering, balanced and nicely complex finale where the only nit is a discreet hint of warmth. This is attractive and worth checking out. I would further note that while this appears to have enough potential to warrant a few years of cellaring, it’s not so structured to prevent it from being enjoyed now. 2023+. (Oct 2020)"
