89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
More mineral and incisive than its communal sibling, the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Mazures offers up notes of pear, white flowers and almond paste. Medium to full-bodied and delicately textural, this hails from a superior lieu-dit below the premier cru Champs Gain. (WK) (2/2020)

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
There is better freshness and almost no sulfur on the petrol, citrus and resin-suffused nose. The mouthfeel of the medium-bodied flavors is both suave and succulent while possessing good depth on the nicely refined and persistent finale. Like the straight Chassagne villages, this isn't particularly dense, but I like the poise and overall balance. (6/2020)

Tank sample. Subtle, complex, finely mineral without loss of clean, pure citrus fruit. Precise and intense with impressive length. Lovely wine that keeps on giving. So moreish. (JH) 17/20 (1/2020)

The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Mazures 1er Cru is generous on the nose with a slightly petrolly, almost Riesling like personality. The palate is fairly straightforward with orange rind and ginger notes, yet it is just missing some tension and vivacity on the finish. Maybe here the growing season dictates the wine? (NM) (1/2020)
