92 Points, John Gilman, View from The Cellar: "The very low yields in Chambolle this year have given the Premier Cru bottling chez Drouhin quite a black fruity personality, which recalls stylistically this cuvée back in the 1993 vintage. The bouquet is a youthful blend of black cherries, dark berries, woodsmoke, gamebird, mustard seed, chalky soil tones and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and quite solid at the core, with firm, well-integrated tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, tangy and youthful finish. This will need some bottle age before it starts to stir, but it will be very good once it has blossomed. (Drink between 2022-2060)" 11/17


93 Points, William Kelley, Decanter: " This premier cru blend, like its Vosne-Romanée counterpart, is very fine this year, offering up a lovely nose of creamy red fruit, venison and forest floor. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and intense, its fine, chalky tannins cloaked in a rich, deep core of succulent fruit. This should age superbly.Drinking Window 2024 - 2038." 10/17
