Reviews 96-98 points Wine Advocate "The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru is a classic in the making, wafting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, citrus blossom, green apple, mandarin and beeswax, subtly framed by new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, beautifully complete and multidimensional, with a broad, satiny attack, a deep, layered mid-palate and a pure, penetrating finish. Youthfully reserved today, its almost understated elegance conceals impressive reserved of structure and extract. (WK)" 19 points Jancis Robinson "100% new oak. Barrel sample. Honey and lemon on the nose, with the oak hidden from view except in a light dusting of spice and savoury richness that becomes more pronounced on the palate. Completely absorbing on the palate with all that intensity. ‘Baroque’, proffers Lafon as I struggle for the right words, but so fresh on the finish. Massive and completely captivating. Fills the mouth with spice and fruit sweetness and umami complexity. (JH)" 95-98 points Burghound "As good as the Perrieres is, and it's exceptionally good, this offers another step up with its deft touch of wood framing the highly restrained but even more complex nose of mildly exotic aromas of passion fruit, apple, lemon-lime, pear, white flowers and discreet spice elements. The sleek, focused and almost painfully intense imposingly-scaled flavors brim with an abundance of mouth coating dry extract that also buffers the very firm acid spine shaping the hugely long finish that evidences focused power and plenty of minerality...(AM)"
