94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Dark colour with a slight barrel char to the nose. Backward, concentrated, there is a lot of wine here, and it can cope with its barrel. Compared to some of the fine and elegant examples this is much bigger-boned, but will be really interesting with time. Note the long, concentrated finish. Tasted: September 2019."
94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru is noticeably deeper in colour than its peers. It has quite a high-toned bouquet, more ostentatious than I expect with appealing scents of boysenberry, cassis and violet. I would like to see more Cazetiers character develop. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. Fresh and slightly chalky towards the finish that seems to belong to a different wine insofar that it feels austere and tannic. Is that an omen? It is a Gevrey-Chambertin that is indecisive about its future but my optimism is reflected in my score. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. Drink: 2022-2042. (Oct 2019)"
92-94 points and 'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a huge 3.96 ha parcel). Reduction and wood currently overshadow the underlying fruit. There is first-rate intensity and power to the concentrated broad-shouldered flavors that possess a velvet-textured mid-palate while delivering outstanding length on the balanced and only mildly rustic finale. If this can add even more depth it could very well merit the upper end of my predicted range. In sum, this is a classic example and as such, it's very much destined for a long snooze in a cold cellar. Drink: 2033+. (Jan 2018)"
93 points/'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$156 list] This rich, smoky wine has layers of wood to contrast with rich black-plum flavors. It comes from one of the line of premier cru vineyards on the steep slope right behind the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, Structured and firm now, with the classic weight of the appellation, the wine will take its time. Drink from 2023. Alcohol 13%. (Dec 2018)"
