94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Les Grands Epenots has also turned out beautifully, mingling aromas of cherries, raspberries and orange rind with nuances of peonies, smoked meat, grilled ceps and espresso roast. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, succulent and enveloping, with terrific depth and concentration at the core, framed by lively acids and an elegantly muscular chassis of powdery structuring tannins. Like all Gaunoux's wines in 2017, this Grands Epenots marries seriousness with structural charm to very appealing effect. Drink: 2027-2047. (Jan 2020)"

92 points/'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a 1.74 ha parcel). A more elegant nose offers up lovely aromatic layering that includes notes of cool red currant, dark raspberry, plum and freshly turned earth. There is more size, weight and richness to the larger-scaled flavors that possess a seductive texture before culminating in a naturally sweet, complex and sneaky long finish. This too is very promising for the longer-term yet is a wine that should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years. Drink: 2029+. (Apr 2020)"
