94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is a magical wine in the making, and readers might think of it as a more elegant, structurally refined version of Trapet's 1999 Latricières. Wafting from the glass with notes of cherries, cassis, dark chocolate, coniferous forest floor and rose petals, it's full-bodied, velvety and layered, with an incisive spine of acidity, lively acids and terrific concentration, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This is worth a special effort to seek out. The 2018 vintage has turned out brilliantly at this Gevrey-Chambertin benchmark, an estate that seems to go from strength to strength. Jean-Louis Trapet began picking on September 5 and retained a considerable proportion of whole clusters for vinification, reporting alcohol levels for the most part between 13% and 13.5%. Yields, he told me, were limited by the domaine's high percentage of old vines. Deep, concentrated and exquisitely elegant, this is a remarkably consistent range in both style and quality, and while they bear the imprint of the vintage, they're not dominated by it. Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended. (WK) (2/2020)

95 points Decanter

Jean-Louis Trapet's 0.78ha parcel runs up the slope from the top to the bottom of the Grand Cru and was planted in two stages in 1937 and 1946. Exhibiting the freshness of the site, especially welcome in a vintage like 2018, this has appealing notes of clove and ginger spice, fine-grained 40% new oak, textured tannins, sweet raspberry fruit and a refreshing finish.

95 points John Gilman

The 2018 Latricières-Chambertin from Domaine Trapet is another brilliant example of the vintage. As the microclimate here is cooler than in Chapelle, the wine is a tad less powerful in personality out of the blocks and is an absolute classic in the making. The nose is deep, pure and very precise, offering up scents of sweet dark berries, black cherries, meaty tones, a great base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke, espresso and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, soil-driven and shows off stunning mid-palate depth, with lovely focus and nascent complexity, suave, buried tannins and outstanding length and grip on the perfectly balanced finish. A gorgeous vintage of the Trapet family’s Latricières. (12/2019)

93-95 points Vinous

The 2018 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, matured in 40–50% new oak, offers pretty dark cherry, wild strawberry and undergrowth scents on the nose; a light marine scent emerges with time in the glass, along with a touch of licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well-judged acidity and good density, and it maintains a sense of control all the way through. Quite linear on the finish but displays lovely sapidity on the aftertaste. Excellent. (NM) (1/2020)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

This too presents a deft touch of wood on the slightly cooler and even more floral-infused aromas of wild dark berries, anise, tea and forest floor. There is slightly better energy and certainly much more minerality on the dusty, youthfully austere and sneaky long finish. As one would reasonably expect given the natural coolness of Latricières, this is less marked by the heat of the 2018 vintage. This too is really quite lovely and harmonious. (1/2021)
