91-95 points Fine Wine Review: "The Gevrey-Clos des Issarts is just north of Rousseau’s Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes, and in the glass can really be considered a continuation of Ruchottes. The vines here are part 30 years old, part planted in 2005. The wine has typical stoniness in the nose. The mouth shows nervy red and black currant fruit that is intense. The body is a little fuller and the wine is a little less nervous than in some other vintages. (Issue #139; 2013)"

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "Precise aromas of raspberry and crushed rock. Sweet, silky and deep, with crushed raspberry and mineral flavors complicated by smoke and game nuances. Boasts superb thickness and palate presence without any heaviness. Finishes with lovely lift and a whiplash of red fruits, smoke and minerals. Faiveley is no longer farming these vines organically, and adviser Bernard Hervet notes that this wine now shows less reduction and early grapefruit character. (Jan 2013)"

92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "Surprisingly well-colored for the vintage. It is also unusually ripe as well with a lovely array of dark cherry, raspberry, earth and a whiff of Gevrey-style sauvage character. The ripeness shows up on the palate as well with fine richness and minerality to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess very good depth and fine length on the balanced finale thanks to the mature supporting tannins. This could easily be enjoyed now though I would be inclined to hold it for a few more years first. Lovely stuff. Drink: Try from 2023+. (Jul 2018)"
