"The 2018 Chambertin Grand Cru contains 100% whole-cluster fruit this year and sees 50% new oak during its élevage. It comes from three parcels. The exquisitely defined bouquet of mineral-driven red berry fruit unfurls wonderfully in the glass. The palate has stunning definition and a killer line of acidity that cuts through some of the purest fruit I encountered in over 100 visits in the Côte d’Or. So delicious that I had to take a cheeky sip of this elixir. One of the wines of the vintage." 97-99 points - Neal Martin (Vinous, January 2020)

"This is aromatically similar to the Latricières but perhaps even a bit cooler and with more earth and sauvage elements. There is a really lovely purity to the sleek, dense, intense and markedly powerful large-scaled flavors that exude an almost pungent minerality on the austere, serious and wonderfully persistent and very firmly structured finale. As the Trapet Chambertin often is, this is not a monster of concentration or structure but rather one of refinement and grace." 95 points - Allen Meadows - (Burghound, January 2021)
