98 points La Revue du Vin de France: "Notes of sweet briar, smoke and Chinese tea in the caressing Chapelle-Chambertin. (2022)"

96 points Charles Curtis, MW (Decanter): "A lovely, accessible wine with bright cherry and blackberry fruit, scented with spice and smoke. The texture is voluptuously rich, almost decadent, and lingers enticingly on the finish. From the oldest vines in Trapet’s 0.6ha parcel of Chapelle-Chambertin, planted in 1945. Jean-Louis notes that the vines ripen early because of the thin soils here. Drinking Window: 2026-2060. (5/15/21)"

94-96 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Notes of rose petals, orange rind, cassis, rich soil tones and raw cocoa preface Trapet's 2019 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly sumptuous and enveloping wine that's deep and complete, with lively acids, velvety tannins and a long, saline finish. As I've observed before, this derives exclusively from holdings located in lieu-dit En la Chapelle. (Jan 2021)"

95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Jean-Louis Trapet’s 2019 Chapelle-Chambertin is one of the great wines of the vintage, coming in at 13.5 percent octane and offering classic aromatic and flavor profiles, superb depth, impeccable balance and lovely structure for long term aging. The utterly refined bouquet hops from the glass in a mix of cherries, red plums, cocoa powder, a gorgeous base of soil, pigeon, mustard seed, a touch of sweet stem tones and a suave foundation of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and structured, with a great core of fruit, superb transparency and grip, firm, ripe tannins and a long, complex and very classy finish. This is a proper example of Chapelle and will need plenty of bottle age to start to drink with generosity, but it is one of the stars of 2019. 2035-2100. (Jan/Feb 2022)"

93-95 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2019 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru, which includes 100% whole bunch, has a complex bouquet of black fruit, espresso and crushed stone aromas, displaying very good intensity. The focused palate is medium-bodied with very good structure and fine grip. At the moment, the whole bunch influences this Grand Cru, which is slightly bitter on the finish and leaves a strong saline aftertaste. I would like to see just a tad more elegance, à la Domaine Dugat, as it matures. Drink: 2024-2045. (Dec 2020)"

93-95 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Lovely deep crimson purple. The nose is wonderfully sensual without toppling over into the ultra-ripe. There is an attractive little whiff of oak too. Almost edible, then some rhubarb notes, very balanced maturity, and a complex saline finish. (Nov 2020)"
