96-98 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru comprises three barrels. It has a glorious, beautifully defined bouquet displaying very fine precision and gorgeous mineral tones. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins, perfectly judged acidity and beautifully integrated oak. Just a little lactic on the finish at the moment, but that will disappear with time. Superb. Drink: 2023-2045. (Dec 2020)"

97 points Charles Curtis, MW (Decanter): "Fruit purchased from an old vine plot; nearly 80% of which was fermented as whole clusters using native yeasts. The maturation will continue for 18 months in cask. There are two barrels that are just beginning to reveal their depth and complexity – initially somewhat closed, they open up on the palate to reveal great wellsprings of ripe black cherry fruit and concentration. The tannins are firm, even a bit strict, but there is enough density and extract to carry the phenolic charge. Drinking Window: 2024-2039. (Oct 2020)"
