94-96 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 LatriciÃ¨res-Chambertin Grand Cru, which contains 40% whole bunch fruit like the Chapelle Chambertin, has those typical traits of correctness and strictness on the nose. The black fruit feels a bit aloof and distant, but that is what you expect-this is not a Charmes-Chambertin! The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit tinged with fig, cinnamon and baking spices, lively and tensile with real frisson toward the finish. What an outstanding LatriciÃ¨res from Jean-Louis, yet another great success this vintage." 12/17
92-94 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Good dark red. Much more sauvage on the nose than the Chapelle-Chambertin, showing a more brambly dark fruit character along with notes of licorice and leather. Then plush and gamey in the middle palate, with plum and currant fruit flavors enlivened by violet and mineral notes and given surprising definition by firm acidity. Firm and upright but not austere, with its solid tannins nicely supported by sweet purple fruits." 1/18
92-94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "This too is sufficiently reduced as to render the nose impossible to assess. Otherwise there is a significant difference in mouthfeel to the more tension-filled and delineation if less rich medium weight plus flavors that are also much more mineral-driven on the super-saline finish that is equally persistent if much more youthfully austere. While this is qualitatively similar to the Chapelle but it couldn't be more different intrinsically. Textbook LatriciÃ¨res. " 1/18
95 Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "Though the LatriciÃ¨res was frosted in 2016, this wine was showing more precision and nuance at the present time in the Trapet cellars than the very good Chapelle-Chambertin. The bouquet here is outstanding, wafting from the glass in a complex blend of cassis, sweet dark berries, bitter chocolate, gamebird, dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a discreet base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very refined in profile, with a sappy core of black fruit, lovely backend mineral drive, ripe, suave tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. Fine, fine juice. 2026-2075." 11/17
