94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Chapelle-Chambertin is dark and brooding. Cool, mineral notes lead to slate, black cherries, tar and licorice. This is a decidedly muscular, intense Burgundy with tons of density and power enshrouded by statuesque tannins. The sheer power and intensity suggest the Chapelle will require considerable patience. This big, dramatic wine is built for the cellar, but it is without question a showstopper, even today. (2/ 2012)

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good full red. Pure but restrained aromas of sappy cherry, coffee, smoked meat, spices and wild herbs. Creamy, saline and serious, combining a refined texture with a distinctly wild gamey element. The black fruit and herbal flavors are quite primary today, and the tannins are a bit tougher than those of the Latricieres. This slightly high-toned wine will need considerable bottle aging. Jadot is thinking about replanting these 60-to-75-year-old vines bit by bit. (2/ 2012)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
Like all of the Gevrey grands crus in the Jadot ranges, this is also exceptionally fresh and cool with obvious minerality to the red berry fruit, humus and forest floor aromas. There is superb intensity to the mineral-driven and beautifully well-delineated large-scaled flavors that possess an extremely firm, mouth coating and driving finish. There is a real sense of underlying tension with an overt austerity to the very serious and stunningly long finish. The En GĂ©meaux character of pungent minerality is about as front and center as I have ever seen it. (4/ 2012)
