This is much less evolved, indeed it's entirely backward at present with a tight and inexpressive nose of somber dark berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with warm earth notes that can also be found on the ripe, serious and brooding full-bodied flavors that possess good richness and power on the moderately rustic but impressively long finish. This should be excellent but at present, it's awkward.Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan, 2010

Even more severely-concentrated than the corresponding Griotte, Claude Dugat’s 2008 Chapelle-Chambertin possesses strongly resinous notes from cask and an upwelling of powerful though by no means coarse tannins that compete for attention with bitter-edged black fruits, peat, and citrus oils, all of which collaborate on an extremely piquant presentation and firmly gripping finish. Dugat characterizes Chapelle as always tannic. Time will hopefully bring greater polish, but I would not look for the unremitting, tense energy on display here today to significantly diminish over the next 12-15 years. ||Claude Dugat reports that his triage in 2008 was more for rot than under-ripe berries, since his routine willingness to resort to drastic crop-dropping serves to guarantee that the fruit matures. He did however report back-off slightly on the total length of maceration. Wine Advocate.June, 2010
