About

96

"Not surprisingly, the 2011 Griottes-Chambertin is every bit as promising as the family’s superb Mazy. The deep, pure and youthful nose delivers a mélange of red and black cherries, cocoa, grilled meat, a beautifully complex base of soil tones, woodsmoke, a touch of mustard seed, roses and toasty new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a very primary profile, ripe, chewy tannins just buried in fruit, superb soil inflection and a very, very long, nascently complex and magical finish. Great juice. 2025-2075."

93+ Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Deep red with ruby tones. Complex aromas of cherry, crushed stone, licorice and musky coffee, with hints of caramel and molasses. Concentrated, juicy and energetic, with lovely thickness and inner-mouth perfume to its flavors of black fruits and licorice. Finishes firm, long and aromatic. This may ultimately top the 2012 version, but I prefer the Mazy 2012 to the '11 in the early going."

93 Allen Meadows - Burghound

"There is better integration of the wood on the pretty and attractively fresh nose of red berries, plum, black cherry and subtle warm earth hints though I would still describe it as prominent. There is excellent energy to the well-detailed and enveloping medium weight plus flavors that possess a plush mouth feel on the firm, balanced, complex and highly persistent finish."
