Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 94 (2018 Apr.)

This displays noticeable wood influence though here it's more in the form of menthol than toast though it's not so much as to materially impede the appreciation of the notably ripe red cherry and overtly floral-scented nose where ample hints of the sauvage and warm earth eventually appear. There is remarkably good concentration as the old vine sap is immediately evident whilst coating the palate and pushing the markedly firm tannic spine to the background on the powerful and intensely mineral-driven if noticeably warm finale. Despite the impressive size, weight and power this is actually more refined than usual but even so, it's going to require a very long snooze in an appropriately cool cellar. In sum, this is seriously good Chapelle.

Vinous - Score: 92 (2018 Nov.)

The 2015 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a slight dustiness on the nose at first, though underneath lies some attractive red berry fruit intermingling with earth and leather. The palate is medium-bodied and a little conservative in style, displaying chewy tannin, moderate acidity and a brisk blackberry- and raspberry-driven finish accented by black pepper on the aftertaste. Fine, but I suspect it will deserve a more generous appraisal in several years’ time. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
