Vinous reviewer Neal Martin provided a commendable review, scoring the wine between 89 to 91 points. Martin highlighted the wine's clarity and its expressive Gevrey character. He noted, "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has much more clarity and Gevrey character than the version without SO2; this is much better." His remarks suggest that the inclusion of sulfur dioxide (SO2) significantly enhanced the wine's qualities, making it more articulate of its origin and more enjoyable to drink.

Further into his tasting notes, Martin described the wine as medium-bodied with fine acidity, which contributes to its crisp and focused nature. He praised the wine's finish for its clarity, stating, "Crisp and focused, displaying great clarity on the finish." His endorsement concluded with high praise: "Sorry, but judging them side by side, the judicious addition of SO2 renders the wine more articulate of its origin... and it is a wine that you actually want to drink. Superb."

Overall, the 2018 Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey Chambertin is well-regarded for its clear expression of the Gevrey Chambertin terroir, balanced acidity, and an inviting finish. Neal Martin's excellent review underscores its quality and drinkability, making it a notable option for those seeking a classic Burgundy Pinot Noir.
