Wine Advocate Review: 93-95 points
"The 2015 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru has an elegant, floral bouquet with violets petals and wild hedgerow scents infusing the dark cherry and raspberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a confit-like entry, a fine thread of acidity, tensile and long with an edginess on the finish. There is a surprising touch of licorice on the aftertaste that I hope will be there after bottling. There is a bit of brio and flamboyance to this Griotte-Chambertin that I hope will govern the wine once in bottle."

Vinous Review: 92-95 points
"Dark red-ruby. Terrific lift to the aromas of black cherry, pomegranate and roasted meat; not a particularly floral style this year but boasts excellent energy. Utterly seamless wine with a texture of cashmere to its dark fruit, chocolate and soil flavors. Hugely rich but not yet expressive or especially complex, this utterly plush wine needs time and should be a long-termer. Finishes with outstanding spicy lift and grip."
