94 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parkers Wine Advocate: "Despite its warm mesoclimate, CÃ©line Fontaine told me that the 2017 Criots-BÃ¢tard-Montrachet Grand Cru didn't suffer in the dry August weather. As usual, the wine is rich and dramatic, bursting with a musky bouquet of mandarin orange, honeycomb, citrus blossom and spices. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and succulent, with an ample, textural attack but nice purity and delineation on the finish. The most precocious grand cru in the cellar, it will drink well out of the gates." 1/19
92-95 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Bright lemon-yellow. The nose offers a wet stone aroma along with an element of honey. Fat and dense, even glyceral, but with surprising lemony acidity neutralizing its slight impression of sweetness. Conveys an impression of substantial alcohol but not particularly honeyed in the mouth. Finishes savory and smooth, with lovely building length. A potentially superb vintage for this bottling." 9/18
94 Points, Tim Atkin, Decanter: "Criots faces south so gets lots of sun, but the high percentage of clay in its soils meant that it didn't suffer from heat stress in 2017. It's still a comparatively plush, richly upholstered white, with stone fruit flavours, a hint of guava and enough acidity to freshen the finish." 10/18
