Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 93 points

The Dugat-Py 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux displays more finesse and refinement of texture as well as a similar, seemingly gravity-defying combination of density with lift and buoyancy to the corresponding Petite Chapelle, although there is less sheer flavor concentration and drama on display. Black tea and blackberry are decadently laced with peony floral notes in the nose, and the tea and berries are underlain by peat, wet stone, and iron filings. It lingers palate-saturatingly, stimulatingly, and a bit mysteriously. Expect more excitement over the next several years and an at least dozen year potential.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 91 points

Deep red. Youthfully reticent but complex nose hints at black cherry, violet and smoked meat. Sweet, supple and gamey, with lovely ripeness, definition and inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of wild black fruits and coffee. With age, I suspect this soil-inflected wine will surpass the premier cru.
