Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-94 (2018 Jan.)

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 Latricières.

Vinous - Score: 89 (2019 Oct.)

The 2016 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru has a slightly odd bouquet at first, lavender/menthol aromas shading the red berry fruit and rendering it a little ersatz compared to Rossignol-Trapet's own Latricières. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fleshy and showy. I find the oak impeding upon the finish that is missing the terroir expression I was hoping for. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.
