John Gilman - View from the Cellar:

"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."

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."

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."
