Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2015 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has an open red cherry, crushed strawberry and sea spray-scented bouquet that perhaps does not quite have the complexity, nor the intrigue of the Mazis-Chambertin at this stage. The palate is refined with grippy tannin and a commendable sense of energy and tension. The salinity comes through on the finish and lends this grand cru fine sappiness, urging you back for another sip. For those with patience...Drink Dates: 2020-2045Author: Neal MartinIssue: 228
Vinous | Rating: 92The 2015 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a slight dustiness on the nose at first, though underneath lies some attractive red berry fruit intermingling with earth and leather. The palate is medium-bodied and a little conservative in style, displaying chewy tannin, moderate acidity and a brisk blackberry- and raspberry-driven finish accented by black pepper on the aftertaste. Fine, but I suspect it will deserve a more generous appraisal in several years’ time. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.Drink Dates: 2022 - 2045Author: Neal MartinIssue: Nov 2018
James Suckling | Rating: 97Very old vines from early 1920s, which were planted at very high density (more than 11,000 vines per hectare). It has a very impressive sense of completeness and a regal air. Loaded with red cherries, orange zest and fresh sappy aromas. It delivers velvety, fine tannins in a seamless mode. Very impressive from start to finish. Already drinking well. This has a good twenty-year window ahead.Author: James SucklingIssue: Thursday, December 27, 2018
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94This is still tightly wound and marked by assertive tannins. Shows a leafy, vegetal side, complemented by a core of cherry, raspberry and sweet spice notes. Dense and muscular, with licorice and tobacco details on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 160 cases made, 50 cases imported. — BSIssue: May 31, 2018

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
