92-94+ points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Hailing exclusively from 'terres rouges', 2017 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is the king of the cellar, unfurling in the glass with a less outgoing bouquet of peony, cherries, cassis, currant leaf and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and structured, with a rich chassis of fine-grained tannins, juicy acids and a long, mineral finish. While it's still quintessentially Chambolle, it's the most muscular wine in the range and will demand the most patience. (Jan 2019)"

93 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .34 ha parcel located in 100% terres rouges). A background hint of wood easily allows the cool and equally pure essence of red currant, plum and violet scents to be appreciated. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the tautly muscular flavors that are also shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the balanced and lingering finale. This is a Bonnes Mares of refinement and finesse that should age well on a base of balance. Drink: 2029+. (Jan 2020)"
