96 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "The Drouhins’ holdings cover 0.5ha of this grand cru on both red and white soils. It's another very impressive wine from a domaine that's right at the top of its game under the new generation. Made with 25% whole bunches and 80% new wood, it's a very complete expression of the grand cru with plenty of intensity and coiled power, some good underlying grip and a sappy, spicy, vanilla finish. (Drink between 2026-2037. (Nov 2018)"
94-96 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a very expressive bouquet with violet-tinged blackberry and boysenberry fruit, well defined and quite precise. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, taut and linear for a Bonnes-Mares but the coiled-up energy is palpable here. There is such energy on the finish that you know that this will turn into an exceptionally fine Bonnes-Mares. Recommended. Drink: 2023-2045. (Jan 2019)"
92-96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "80% new wood 25% whole bunch vinification. Bonnes Mares has bounced back well from the 2016 frost. Rich purple, a certain sumptuous note to the wine, this has huge energy and a crystalline crunch, this has been judged just right. Good tannins to provide structure, fully ripe fruit but still with energy. Tasted: December 2018. (Dec 2018)"
