94+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Christophe Roumier’s 2007 Ruchottes is still quite youthful, but it has stellar potential and its ultimate beauty is already quite self-evident. The pure and primary bouquet wafts from the glass in a fine blend of red and black cherries, blood orange, cocoa, a beautiful base of minerally soil tones, mustard seed, incipient meatiness, just a touch of vanillin oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy on the attack, with a very soil-driven personality from the mid-palate back, a great core, ripe tannins and excellent focus and grip on the very, very long, pure and classy finish. This is a stellar vintage of Roumier Ruchottes-Chambertin in the making, and all that is required is a bit more cellaring. 2019-2045. (Jan/Feb 2014)"
93 points Bruce Sanderson (Wine Spectator): "Rich, dense and infused with cherry, this red gathers firmness from start to finish. There are some tannins from the oak, which also lend a spicy component. Mineral elements complete the picture as this lingers on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2027. 8 cases imported. (2/3/10)"
18/20 points Clive Coates (My Favorite Burgundies): "Medium-full colour. Lots of class here. Very lovely, virile fruit on the nose. Medium-full body. Lots of dimension on the palate. Very good grip. Very lovely subtle fruit. Very fine. Drink from 2016. (2013)"
