91 - 94 Points!  (these vines average 50 years of age; the Humberts own a major chunk of this premier cru and the Poissenot is their largest cuvée after their village Gevrey): Dark red-ruby. Very dark, floral nose exudes scents of cassis, blackberry, violet and licorice. Juicy and imploded, displaying terrific definition but an extremely primary character to its dark fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. This very rocky wine from shallow soil is quite youthfully taut today, with its strong oak element currently drying the tannins. But there's outstanding mineral energy here to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. This wine can be a bit strict in cooler years like 2010 and 2008, notes Humbert.  Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, January 2017
92 Points!  As it was from barrel last year, this is still somewhat reduced. Otherwise there is a much more elegant mouthfeel to the equally mineral-driven and punchy middle weight flavors that deliver excellent length on the youthfully austere, refined and beautifully well-balanced finale. The elevation of the vineyard is in evidence as this is a relatively cool and restrained 2015. It’s hard to predict whether the reduction will eventually dissipate though my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that it will. - Allen Meadows, Burghound #69
