94 points Tim Atkin, MW: "East facing and on deeper soils in the mid-slope, this is often the most compact and Nuits-like of the Chevillons’ reds. That’s certainly the case in 2015, but the muscular, sinewy tannins are complemented by the joyous, exuberant fruit sweetness of the vintage. Plush, textured and very well balanced. 2022-28. (Jan 2017)"
91-94 points and 'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .70 ha parcel of 50+ year old vines). Here the expressive nose is also relatively deeply pitched with its interplay of spice and earth nuances that add breadth to the plum, black cherry and soft game and humus hints. There is outstanding volume to the sleek medium-bodied flavors that possess a supple mid-palate thanks to the abundant amount of dry extract though the finish immediately tightens up on the beautifully well-balanced but notably firm finale. This is textbook Pruliers that is not only built-to-age but is going to need at least 8 to 10 years of it. Drink: 2030+. (Jan 2017)"
92 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "Dark red. Very ripe but reticent nose conveys liqueur-like cherry and dark berry aromas plus a hint of dark chocolate. Powerful, rich and mouthfilling but classically dry, with the impression of chocolatey ripeness carrying through in the mouth. Quite outsized for this cuvée, possessing considerable baby fat. The substantial dusty tannins arrive late, allowing the wine's dark fruit and saline soil tones to build on the aftertaste. Drink: 2023-2034. (Jan 2018)"
