Jasper Morris: 98-100 Points

I find I am lacking detailed notes on several of the wines this year at the very top end of the spectrum. They were just superlative examples of their vineyards and it was too much of a struggle to find any sort of vocabulary which could express them adequately. From the imperial purple colour onwards this wine expresses itself magically in every dimension ? dancing from one end of the universe to the other to mangle a phrase of EM Forster?s. oak and fruit what's to say.

Burghound: 97 Points

There is barely enough wood to mention on the wonderfully fresh and airy aromas of red cherry pomegranate earth and a hint of the sauvage. The seductively textured yet well-delineated big-bodied flavors possess an abundance of energy on the intensely mineral-inflected sappy and impeccably well-balanced finale that reflects a touch of youthfu

Wine Advocate: 97 Points

The 2018 Chambertin Grand Cru wafts from the glass with a complex bouquet of red berries plums rose petals and orange rind framed by bass notes of rich loamy soil and carnal nuances of smoked meats. Full-bodied deep and multidimensional it's layered and concentrated its expansive attack segueing into a richly structured but impressively vibrant mid-palate concluding with a long resonant finish. This is a brilliant wine that readers should plan on forgetting for at least a decade.

Vinous: 94-96 Points

The 2018 Chambertin Grand Cru has a gorgeous bouquet of intense red fruit undergrowth cedar and orange blossom aromas. The medium-bodied palate is lithe and deep delivering fine tannins red berry fruit and great tension and depth on the finish. This is an immense Chambertin one where winemaker Cyrielle Rousseau has managed to impart a sense of dimension yet this year I find that Rousseau?s Clos-de-Bèze delivers the nobility.
