This climat was called "Petite Merveille" (Little Wonder) in the Middle Ages, a sign of the high quality of the wines produced here. "Latricières-Chambertin" dates back to 1508 and is the most southern Grand Cru in Gevrey-Chambertin. This wine reveals exceptional balance between minerality (reminiscent of Clos de la Roche) and depth (close in style to a Chambertin).

Winemaker notes

Intense ruby red hue and complex nose offering rich roasted notes and spice. The palate opens up with rich, silky tannins that give way to a powerful and complex structure.

2018

Burghound 92-95: There is very good freshness to the ripe but cool aromas of red and dark raspberry, forest floor, spice and a whiff of wood. The intensely mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors pack impressive punch and a taut muscularity along with outstanding depth, precision and sneaky good length on the firm, austere and built-to-age finale. This refined effort is terrific and very Latricières in character.

Wine Advocate 94-96: Aromas of cassis, wild berries, blood orange and coniferous forest floor introduce the 2018 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, a full-bodied, immensely refined wine that's built around powdery tannins and a bright spine of acidity. Long and perfumed, this is a superb bottle in the making that will reward bottle age.

Decanter 96: Latricières is the coolest of Gevrey-Chambertin's array of Grands Crus and really comes into its own in years like 2018 when the summer is like a furnace. This parcel is located close to Clos de la Roche in Morey-St-Denis at the foot of the Combe Grisard and has produced a saline, rose petal-perfumed Pinot Noir of balletic poise and elegance with just the right amount of underlying grip and focus.

2019

Wine Advocate 94-96: There is a distinctly cool quality to the restrained, ultra-fresh and airy aromas of red currant, raspberry, earth and whiffs of spice and the sauvage. The rich and beautifully delineated middle weight flavors possess superb focus along with an abundance of minerality that seems to build on the complex, refined and highly persistent finish. This classy and harmonious effort should amply repay extended cellaring.

Burghound 93-95: There is a distinctly cool quality to the restrained, ultra-fresh and airy aromas of red currant, raspberry, earth and whiffs of spice and the sauvage. The rich and beautifully delineated middle weight flavors possess superb focus along with an abundance of minerality that seems to build on the complex, refined and highly persistent finish. This classy and harmonious effort should amply repay extended cellaring.

Vinous 99: The 2019 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru dazzles from the very first taste. What an insanely beautiful wine it is. Sweet floral and spice notes soar out of the glass. Deep and beautifully layered, with gorgeous aromatics and impossibly silky tannins, the 2019 is a marvel to behold. The Latricières soars with tremendous vertical intensity that threatens to literally blow the roof off the cellar. Once again, it is one of my favourites in the collection.

Decanter 98: The super-ripe aromas of cassis and currant leap from the glass, coloured with hints of mineral, smoke and spice. The texture is rich, almost fleshy, but despite the approachable feel on the palate, the fine-grained tannins carry this along to a lingering, satisfying finish. This excels its peers in finesse and elegance. Produced from a 1.21ha, domaine-owned parcel. After fermentation with a significant portion of whole clusters, the wine is aged 18 months in cask, 60% new.

2020

Burghound 90-93: An overtly floral-suffused nose speaks of even more restrained notes of black cherry, earth, the sauvage and discreet spice nuances. The sleek, intense, refined and mineral-driven middle weight flavors possess cuts-like-a-knife delineation on the youthfully austere bitter pit fruit-inflected finish. Note that this is quite firm and will need time to both add depth and further flesh out.

Wine Advocate 94-96: Continuing this site's hot streak, the 2020 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru wafts from the glass with notions of wild berries, peonies, exotic spices, sweet soil tones, espresso roast and bergamot. Full-bodied, velvety and layered, it's deep and concentrated, with lively acids and a layered, vibrant core of fruit, concluding with a chalky finish.

Vinous 94-96: The 2020 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is one of the best Faiveley wines on the nose: very good definition and mineralité here, poised and focused, not short-changing anyone in terms of power. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity and grip with a dense and quite weighty finish, yet it manages to maintain finesse. Uncompromising...in a good way.

Decanter 95: Ripe curranty fruit, with notes of earth, wild herbs and liquorice. The texture initially seems silky and approachable, but with time the underlying tannins and extract make themselves felt. From the 1.25ha Faiveley holds in Latricières. The team relates that the heat of the summer blocked the maturation in August due to water stress. Rains at the end of the month, however, helped the fruit finish ripening. The final result was partially destemmed prior to fermentation and ageing in 50% new casks.
