94 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "As big as a Chambertin with the intensity and sheer flavor authority to match. Sumptuously, even lavishly oaked yet it carries its oak as though it were nothing and there is no doubt that this will absorb the wood completely as there is a mind boggling amount of mid-palate sap and punch and it completely coats the mouth and the persistence is exemplary. The structure is completely buried beneath all the sap and while this should be approachable after a decade, it will drink well for another two. Another great Roty Charmes in a very long line of them. If you can find a few bottles, don't miss them. In short, this is very classy juice. 2009-21+. (Jan 2004)"

93 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "Medium red. Musky, wild scents of plum, red cherry, coffee, milk chocolate and underbrush, plus a discreet note of tobacco. Surprisingly fresh and sappy in the mouth considering the nose, offering nicely delineated flavors of plum, berries, minerals and dried rose petal. But with its surprisingly firm acidity, this wine is still a bit tight and may yet expand further in bottle. Incidentally, Pierre-Jean told me that this wine resembled the relatively austere 2006 at the beginning, adding that it "was crushed commercially by the 2002," but I find it more sappy than--if not as sweet as--the '06 thanks to its treble notes. This bottle really grew on me as it opened in the glass and showed subtle rising perfume and building sweetness, along with some dustier tannins. Classic Burgundy in a middle-of-the-road style. (13.85% alcohol; 3.3 pH; 40 h/h) Drink: 2019-2033. (Feb 2019)"
