95 points "Robert Parker's Wine Advocate—94-96 Points: "The 2010 Mazoyeres-Chambertin boasts a haunting, impossibly elegant bouquet. Hints of dark cherry, espresso, licorice and spice develop in the glass, adding considerable depth but no weight whatsoever. The Mazoyeres remains light on its feet and impeccably refined. Sweet, candied notes resonate on the finish. Ultimately the Mazoyeres is all about textural finesse, and there is no shortage of that here. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040." —Antonio Galloni" Best 2020-2040

94 points "Allen Meadows' Burghound—93-95 Points: "Deft wood frames a nose that is reasonably similar to that of the Charmes but here there is a more obvious sauvage character. This is also impressively broad-scaled with an overt muscularity to the almost painfully intense flavors yet somewhat surprisingly, they are no more structured. The underlying sense of tension is palpable and this exceptionally powerful wine culminates in a palate saturating finish of genuinely monumental length. In sum, this is a more dramatic wine than the Charmes but even so, it's not clear which one that time will favor. If you can find them and have the patience, I would suggest buying both as they should be sensational in due time."" Best 2020-2030
