"A moderately toasty nose is composed by notes of the essence of wild dark berries and humus along with soft spice and floral nuances. There is a bit better mid-palate density to the richer and much more mineral-driven and refined flavors that display excellent delineation on the linear, focused and mouth coating finish. This is youthfully austere effort is beautifully well-balanced and should age accordingly." -Allen Meadows
"The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from the 1.3 hectares acquired by Faiveley in the 1930s. It has a very refined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, undergrowth and just a touch of graphite. The masculine palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannin, good weight and structure and a persistent, vivid finish that is pure joy. Superb." -Vinous
"The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is showing very well, wafting from the glass with an already expressive bouquet of wild berries, warm spices, peonies and coniferous forest floor. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with a velvety attack, ripe but racy acids, powdery tannins and a long, penetrating finish. The marriage between Latricières's tensile tendencies and the inherently open-knit, supple profile of the vintage make for a charming, precious rendition of this routinely superb cuvée, and it can already be approached with immense pleasure." -Robert Parker
"From a cool, stony parcel that's influenced by the Combe Grisard, this is the pick of the Faiveley grands crus in 2017, making the best of its fresher terroir. Smoky, scented and alluring, it has well-handled wood, 40% new. It's a precise, elegant, chiselled red with sweet summer-pudding flavours and a chalky aftertaste."
"This red is engaging for the pure raspberry, strawberry and rose aromas. The ripe fruit flavors are augmented by vegetal, graphite and spice accents. Firms up on the finish, where oak spice elements emerge."
