DECANTER 96 POINTS - "Denis Bachelet's three parcels total 0.44ha and are situated next to Mazis-Chambertin, with some influence from the cool breezes wafting down from the Combe de Lavaux. Mostly planted with vines planted in the 1920s, this is one of the denser wines in the Bachelet portfolio, located on clay soils. Bramble and black cherry fruit flavours are supported by some tannic grip and deftly handled 50% new oak. Drinking Window: 2023-2030. (Oct 2019)"

VINOUS 94 - 96 POINTS - "Matured in 50% new oak, the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Corbeaux 1er Cru is a wine whose extraction Bachelet told me he has reduced from 2014, as he felt the clay soils made it too masculine. It is divine on the nose, offering pixelated red berry fruit mixed with oyster shell and limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannins, perfect acidity and more freshness and tension than it knows what to do with. This is a sleek, wonderfully proportioned Gevrey that will age effortlessly. Drink: 2023-2048. (Jan 2020)"
