94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Like all of these wines chez Chevillon, the 2015 Pruliers is utterly classic in its expression of vineyard personality, but loaded with pure and plush fruit tones that give it a veneer of elegance that is not always easy to find in a youthful Pruliers. The bouquet is beautiful, delivering a blend of black cherries, dark berries, black plums, pigeon, dark soil tones, a touch of vanillin oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with excellent soil signature, a rock solid core and a long, vibrant and ripely tannic finish. It is just very rare that young Pruliers shows this kind of structural refinement out of the blocks! 2025-2075. (Nov/Dec 2016)"

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)"
