91 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Vivid ruby-red. Expressive, spice-tinged red and blue fruit and floral scents are lifted by a zesty mineral note and a hint of allspice. Palate-caressing black raspberry and boysenberry flavors show fine clarity and spread out steadily on the back half. Finishes sappy, sweet and very long, with subtle earth and floral pastille notes lingering. Drink: 2022-2029. (Aug 2021)"

90 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "I underestimated the 2018 Chiroubles La Grosse Pierre when I tasted it not long after it had been bottled, and six months later, it's performing very well. Mingling aromas of black cherries and blackberries with hints of cracked pepper and herbs, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and elegantly fleshy, with succulent acids, melting tannins and a seamless profile. Drink: 2020-2030. (May 2020)"
