92-94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "One of the broader, more gourmand wines in the cellar is the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Feusselottes, a dramatic wine that marries rich fruit tones of cherry, pomegranate and plum with savory bass notes of dark chocolate and espresso roast. Medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, it's structured around ripe but succulent acids and velvety tannins. (Feb 2020)"

91-94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Actually the real name of this plot is Les Grands Murs, with 60 year old vines and 25% whole bunch vinification. Immense density of colour. Vibrant fruit, excellent density, rich but gourmand and not over ripe, with excellent freshness behind. Tasted: November 2019."

91-93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuesselottes 1er Cru includes 25% whole-bunch fruit this year and is matured in 100% new oak. The wood comes through strongly on the nose, as you would expect, making the terroir difficult to read at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and quite peppery on the midpalate, with good density. There seems to be sufficient fruit to support the 100% new oak on the finish, but it will require several years to be fully assimilated. Three barrels produced. Drink: 2024-2045. (Jan 2020)"

90-93 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .17 ha parcel in the climat of Les Grands Murs; <25% whole clusters). A very and appealing fresh nose offers up notes of red and black cherry, cassis and poached plum along with a floral top note. There is fine volume to the caressing and lacy yet more concentrated flavors that are at once refined but powerful and particularly so on the complex and impressively persistent finish. This is a big but balanced Feusselottes. Drink: 2028+. (Jan 2020)"
