Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"A weightless, totally elegant wine, the 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru represents the quintessential expression of Pinot Noir in Gevrey. The flavors are all beautifully defined. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, plums and mint are woven together in a fabric that speaks of finesse. The 2012 is mid-weight, polished and absolutely pristine to the core."

Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru is an assemblage of four lieux-dits around the village, each offering its own facets. Raised in 50% new oak, it has a very focused and fragrant bouquet with lifted fresh strawberry, Morello and mineral scents that unfold in the glass. The palate has a real frisson on the entry. There is a hint of dark chocolate towards the finish that is defined by dark broody blackberry and bilberry fruit. This is a complex premier cru, one that will require 5-6 years in bottle."

Allen Meadows - Burghound:

"There is enough reduction on the slightly woody nose to suggest that a good decanting is in order if you're tempted to try a bottle of this young. There is however good freshness and vitality to the mineral-inflected, concentrated and ripe middle weight flavors that possess a slightly rustic but long finish where a trace of wood resurfaces."
