93 points Bruce Sanderson (Wine Spectator): "[$120 list] Pure and elegant, delivering cherry, berry, floral and spice aromas and flavors. Firmly structured, with a line of refined tannins shoring up the finish. Patience will be rewarded here. Best from 2023 through 2040. 80 cases imported. (11/30/19)"

92 points La Revue du Vin de France: "Au Chouillet presents itself dense and quite deep, well framed by a sappy tannic structure. (2022)"

90-92 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "(from vines on the north side of the village, under Aux Bousselots and closer to booming downtown Nuits-Saint-George than to Vosne-Romanée; there were some frost losses here owing to cold air flowing through the combe): Bright medium ruby. Black- and redcurrant, menthol, chocolate and black pepper on the rather cool nose. Concentrated, densely packed village wine with lovely violet lift and saline complexity to its dark berry and spice flavors. This is broader-shouldered and longer than the basic Nuits-Saint-Georges village wine, finishing with nicely buffered tannins and a sappy quality. (Jan 2018)"
