98 points Bruce Sanderson (Wine Spectator): "A rich, powerful version, backed by flashy oak and beefy tannins that sandwich the flavors of black cherry, blackberry, licorice, iron and tobacco. Concentrated, yet vibrant and long. Best from 2024 through 2050. 70 cases imported. (2/6/19)" -B.S.

94-97 points Fine Wine Review: "The Clos-de-Bèze is mineral and pure with dark fruit, tension, and nervosity. It is medium-full in body weight. Classic Clos-de-Bèze. (12/14/17)"

96 points Tim Atkin, MW.

96 points Matthew Hemming, MW (The World of Fine Wine): "Berry fruit with citrus rind. Has lovely salinity on the mid-palate. Palate-stainingly mineral and taut. Chalky tannins. (Issue 66; 2019)"

94-96 points Steen Öhman (Winehog): "The Chambertin Clos de Beze -- the regular cuvée is another step up -- underlining that Clos de Bèze and Chambertin are in a different league in the Gevrey appellation. This is a intense, tightly knit and still refined wine. The nose offer layers of red and dark fruit -- coating the intense minerality of the mighty terroir. It’s remarkably elegant and refined for such a big wine -- hard to believe that the Ouvrées Rodin can be better! Drink from 2034. Tasted from cask 10/27/17. (12/30/17)"

93-96 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a 1.29 ha parcel). This is softly oaky with a wonderfully spicy array of black cherry, pungent earth and evident sauvage nuances that can be found on the impressively rich and seductively textured broad-shouldered and concentrated flavors that coat the palate with extract, all wrapped in a balanced, long and deep finish. I very much like the way this fans out on the strikingly persistent finish. Note that plenty of patience is a requisite here and it would be largely pointless to open a bottle before its 10th anniversary. 2036+. (Jan 2018)"

95 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Rich full purple. A concentrated but sombre nose. This is very backward indeed, and what a massive intensity there is on the palate. Perhaps lacks precision but what an onslaught of concentrated fruit. Very slightly on the raw side. A muscular interpretation of Clos de Bèze. Tasted: September 2019."
