Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-94 (2015 Jan.)

A deft application of wood frames ripe, pure and airy aromas that are classic Gevrey with a broad array of floral, wild red berry fruit, earth, humus and a hint of the sauvage. The broad-shouldered and muscular flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration along with firm but relatively fine-grained tannins before culminating in a beautifully balanced, robust and strikingly long finish that is less austere than it usually is. Like several of the wines in the range, this is very clearly built to age and so patience will definitely be required.

Vinous - Score: 91-94 (2015 Apr.)

A distinctly finessed wine, the 2013 Chambertin shows the softer, gentler side of this site. Crushed flowers, red berries, spices and mint are all resonant and nicely layered in the glass. Next to the other Grand Crus in the range, the Chambertin is not as expressive today as it ususally is.
