(92-93+) The 2012 Clos Prieur was also just a touch reduced at the time of my visit, so perhaps I am underrating this wine a touch as well. It is certainly very pure and deep under its gentle note of reduction, and may even have a touch more depth in the mid-palate than the stunning Corbeaux! The bouquet is a lovely, black fruity mélange of dark berries, black cherries, grilled meat, dark soil tones, French roast, a bit of bonfire and a nice base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, reserved and absolutely rock solid at the core, with suave tannins, excellent focus and balance and a very long, primary and soil-driven finish. This will be excellent and in all reality, it is probably just as special as the Corbeaux and Petite Chapelle. (Drink between 2022-2050)

(BH90-92 points) As is usually the case this is aromatically more elegant than the Corbeaux with its pretty and well-layered nose of red currant, plum, earth and spice hints. The mouth feel is notably finer as well with a hint of minerality adding lift to the middle weight flavors that possess more fine-grained tannins on the mildly austere, well-balanced and lingering finish. An understated wine of relative refinement.

Ripe and more savoury than the Beaune Teurons, darker fruited. Texture is dry, fine, verging on austere but just finely balanced. 17/20 (JH)

Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur from Rossignol-Trapet has a fleshy ripe raspberry and strawberry scented bouquet that is showing a little more oak than its peers, but it is still in sync with the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. The purity here is very appealing - pretty Gevrey-Chambertin that is easy-drinking thanks to its smoothness, though just lacks a little complexity. Enjoy over the next 6-8 years. - Neal Martin
