94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Foillard's just-released 2017 Morgon Côte du Py is a great success, unwinding in the glass with aromas of red fruit compote and cherries that are complemented with aeration by beautiful top notes of rose petal, blood orange and violets. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a generous core of ripe but succulent fruit, tangy acids and powdery structuring tannins that assert themselves gently on the long, sapid finish. This is somewhat more sun-kissed in profile than the 2016, and I'm inclined to give the latter vintage a slight edge, but it also needs a year or two in bottle. Drink: 2020-2033. (Apr 2019)"

94 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Vivid ruby. A highly complex bouquet evokes ripe red/blue fruits, candied flowers and exotic spices, and a smoky mineral nuance builds as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that become livelier and spicier on the back half. Conveys an impressive blend of power and finesse and lingers with superb persistence on the finish, which features sneaky tannins and lingering florality. Drink: 2022-2030. (Oct 2019)"

94 points James Suckling: "A juicy and wild red with berry, plum and fresh basil. Medium body, light tannins. Fruity and delicious. Real wine here. Earthy and complex. Drink and enjoy. (5/10/19)"
