The Domaine's Grands Crus are matured in oak barrels (80% new barrels) made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais regions. The domaine favor light to medium-plus toasts as this ensures the perfect harmony between the wine and wood tannins. With a dark ruby color, Latricieres-Chambertin is virile and powerful. This is already clear on the nose, with the intensity and subtlety of the fragrances of black fruit (blackberry and blueberry), licorice and spices. On the palate the attack provides great aromatic complexity and is concentrated, massive and solid. The wine remains elegant and its delicious tannins are seductive. With round substance and good length, it is said to be "masculine and very balanced".

96 Points Wine Spectator

Expressive, boasting aromas of cherry, currant and flowers, with ample fruit flavors augmented by mineral and earth tones, this red displays harmony already at this early stage. A beam of acidity drives this young Burgundy to a long aftertaste of chalk, stone, smoke and spice. Best from 2023 through 2043. 16 cases imported.

94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is matured in 80% new oak. Apparently half of the vineyard was pulled up after the 2015 harvest due to superannuated old vines, but even so, there was still 40% less in this vintage (which implies there is bugger all in 2016). It has ample blackberry, bilberry and oyster shell scents on the nose, taking its time to gradually unfurl in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with black fruit, brisk tannin and fine mineralité, but it tightens up considerably towards the finish. More backward than the Chapelle-Chambertin, it deserves 4-5 years in bottle.
Barrel Sample: 92-94

94 Points
Reduction and wood toast render the nose impossible to fairly assess. There is a notably finer mouth feel if less richness and generosity to the more obviously mineral-driven flavors that terminate in a youthfully austere, linear and wonderfully vibrant finish. This is still somewhat awkward but everything is in place such that this should harmonize with a few years of bottle age; that said this is clearly built-to-age and is going to need at least 7 to 10 years first and reward 15 to 20.
