97 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2017 Perrières is my favorite wine in the cellars this year. The bouquet is pure and properly reserved out of the blocks, offering up a youthful blend of apple, pear, passion fruit, very stony minerality, fresh almond, a bit of citrus peel and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and rock solid at the core, with a great girdle of acidity, laser-like focus and a very long, very mineral and complex finish. This will need bottle age before it really delivers on its superb potential, but with patience, this is going to be a dynamite bottle of Perrières. 2025-2065. (Nov/Dec 2018)"
96 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "This 0.7ha block of old vines is often among the first to be picked at the Comtes Lafon, which meant an August start in 2017. Bready, waxy and spicy, this has classic struck-match reduction, effortless concentration and lots of underlying power. Drinking Window: 2020-2028. (Oct 2018)"
96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Clear pale lemon, even with a light lime tint. The bouquet is classy, with fine fruit and not too much weight. Steely backbone, a citrus tint to the pure white fruit, racy acidity, an earlier picked but very fine Perrières with excellent follow through. Stony and gorgeous. Tasted: July 2021."
96 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru showed some reduction on the nose, but there is impressive delineation and focus and real here. It just needs bottle age. The palate is very well balanced, a live wire of acidity, tensile and mineral-driven with a judicious touch of spice toward the persistent finish. This is very classy and persistent, translating the terroir with style, a wine that flirts with profundity. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune. Drink: 2025-2050. (Aug 2021)"
93-96 points and 'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from two different parcels, a large one with 45+ year old vines that is only 50 yards from Genevrières and a second, smaller one with 20+ year old vines just above Charmes). Here the restrained nose is quite similar to that of the Genevrières though with the addition of a dollop of mineral reduction. The racy and strikingly well-detailed middle weight flavors possess cuts-like-a-knife delineation on the intense, balanced and sneaky long finale that just goes and goes even when it seems as though it's finished. This isn't as dense as the Charmes or as fine as the Genevrières or Bouchères but by combining some of all of them this is ultimately the more complete wine. Drink: 2029+. (Jun 2019)"
95 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières is performing well from bottle, wafting from the glass with aromas of orange blossom, citrus zest, pear, almond paste and freshly baked bread. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegant, with a textural and enveloping attack, a ripe core of fruit, lively balancing acids and a precise, nicely defined finish. This is a lively but expressive young Perrières that will offer a broad drinking window. Drink: 2023-2045. (Jan 2020)"
