Wine Advocate

94 Points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate: "Aromas of fresh pear, ripe citrus fruit, dried white flowers and praline introduce the 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, a full-bodied, elegantly textural wine with a ripe core of fruit, excellent tension at the core, bright acids and chalky structuring extract, concluding with a lively, saline finish. Nicely integrated and impressively complete, it's one of the finer Bâtards I've tasted from Faiveley." 1/19

Neil Martin

92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a more introspective bouquet compared to the Bienvenue, perhaps more malic, with a subtle, almost algal scent. The palate is very precise, maybe a bit "meaner" and more Chablis-like than the Bienvenue, but almost Zen-like toward the finish. It does not have the charm of the Bienvenues and frankly, it isn't trying to. This is more a cerebral, terroir-driven wine." 1/19

Vinous Media

92-94 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Pale yellow. Inexpressive and backward on the nose but quite pure, hinting at pineapple, white peach, citrus peel and menthol. Then juicy and penetrating in the mouth, conveying a stronger impression of acidity and salinity than the Bienvenue; this wine is more floral, while the Bienvenue shows more lemon and mandarin orange fruitiness. Here the easy fruit is already disappearing and the terroir is beginning to emerge owing to a very early malolactic fermentation (in January), but this powerful, sappy grand cru will need time to evolve in bottle." 9/18
