"Cask sample. Such freshness here with lively cranberry and spice. A lithe palate that has a leather, earthy edge and is supported by a zesty driven acidity. Long and focused and very well put together. 17.5 points." Alistair Cooper MW, Jancisrobinson.com Jan 2020 "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle 1er Cru has an expressive, seductive bouquet of ample red cherries, crushed strawberry and rose petal notes; menthol aromas emerge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, and quite saline and spicy, especially toward the finish, which exerts a gentle grip. Great potential here. 2023 - 2040. 91-93 points."

From 60 years old vines. Precise red fruits, fresh and with mineral intensity on palate. Impression of elegance and energy rather than concentration, but the fruit is more accessible than in any year I can recall tasting here. Great development and very good length on the finish for a village wine. RKL "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes from vines averaging 60 years of age, within nine parcels that are representative of the appellation. It has a lovely bouquet of undergrowth scents percolating through red berry fruit that is slightly darker than the Bourgogne Rouge, the 50% whole cluster nicely integrated. The lightly spiced palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and an elegant finish that exerts gentle grip. Give it two or three years in bottle. 89-91 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com Close

Concentrated beef stock, mulberry, bilberry and some blueberry fruit aromas on the nose. Richly textured at the front of the palate, with amazingly fine tannins and a long, linear 'pheasant's tail' finish. RKL "The 2018 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, matured in 40–50% new oak, offers pretty dark cherry, wild strawberry and undergrowth scents on the nose; a light marine scent emerges with time in the glass, along with a touch of licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well-judged acidity and good density, and it maintains a sense of control all the way through. Quite linear on the finish but displays lovely sapidity on the aftertaste. Excellent. 2022 - 2045. 93-95 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com Jan 2020 Close

75% new oak (medium toast). Smoke, brambles, game meats and earth all jumping out of the glass on the nose! I asked re the char level because of that intense smoke aroma but am assured it is from the terroir. Broad and mouth-filling on the palate, a significant step-change from the other grand cru wines, superb. RKL Close

Tortochot's 21.33 ares (approx 0.2 ha) holding here comprises just seven rows of vines, on the lower slopes of the Clos. Traditionally thought of as inferior to the higher parts, the warming climate means ripeness levels are increasing and the location is becoming a positive advantage. Pleasingly approachable for Clos Vougeot, ripe black fruits, spice and with earth, coffee and mineral notes adding complexity. Mid-weight for this grand cru but suspect it will flesh out with age, drinking from 2027. RKL Close

Less open than the Corvees, but much more pronounced aromas of earth and crushed rock, good intensity of aroma. Silky textured, full and concentrated on the palate with some spice. Very refined tannins sustaining the wine though the finish, which is very long. Excellent value. RKL Close

Fermented in stainless steel. No new oak used in the elevage, all 1st year barrels. Mid-intensity colour, aromas of cherry, kirsch, violets, raspberry and earth. Much more expressive on the nose than in previous vintages (save perhaps for 2017). Succulent fruit which fans out on the mid-palate, backed up by fresh acidity and structured tannins. Length is excellent for this level. Vvv good! RKL Close

Only four barrels made. 50% new oak used. Parma violet sweet aromas on the nose with dark red fruits and some spice. The tannins are exceptionally refined, although likely these will be more pronounced in the bottled wine. A very complete, rounded wine already. RKL Close

Bright red cherry fruits and savoury, meaty notes on the nose. Plenty of fruit concentration, good tannic structure, very approachable but with definite premier cru-level structure and intensity, great value. Drinking in just 3-4 years. RKL Close
