96 points Decanter: "Freshness and poise are often the hallmarks of Clos St-Denis, even in warmer vintages, and that's certainly the case here. Made with fruit from 1.45ha of the grand cru, it has 85% whole clusters and 70% new oak. The result is a wine of real verve and focus, showing engaging minerality and enticing perfume and length. Drinking Window: 2025-2035. (Oct 2018)"
94-96 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is more expressive aromatically than the Clos de la Roche at the moment. The terroir is slightly better articulated, notes of crushed stone perfectly infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is precise and focused, almost symmetrical in style, and very expressive. The long, gorgeous, almost tart finish belies the structure of this Grand Cru. Superb. Drink: 2022-2045. (Jan 2019)"
93-96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Dense glowing red, with cinnamon spice on the nose along with deep juicy fruit. Sweet lifted dark red cherries, and rich peony notes, slightly bizarrely reminding me of the old-fashioned Indian restaurant flock wallpaper. Plenty of structure but it all works. Tasted: November 2018."
95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The domaine’s 2017 Clos St. Denis is utterly classic in profile and is going to be a superb wine. The refined, nascently complex and very precise bouquet delivers scents of cherries, raspberries, red plums, complex soil tones, a touch of cocoa powder, mustard seed, gamebird and spicy oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, elegant and very transparent in personality, with a lovely core of fruit, suave, seamless tannins and a very long, tangy and precise finish. A marvelous vintage of this most iconic of Clos St. Denis bottlings! 2027-2075. (Nov/Dec 2018)"
