93-96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Excellent dark red density. The nose is very generous from the first. This is quite a voluminous Echezeaux though do I detect a faint hint of pyrazine. This certainly has a fresh energy behind, quite nicely detailed, yet with the same generosity of fruit as the rest of the cellar. There is darker fruit at the very back. Tasted: November 2018."
95 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Yields were back up to normal here in 2017 after the frost-ravaged 2016 crop. This impressive Échézeaux, sourced from old vines in Les Rouges du Bas, is floral and appealing, with alluring texture, aromas of peony and rose petal, velvety tannins and a refreshing, chalk-tinged acidity. The slight reduction will disappear after racking. Drinking Window: 2024-2032. (Nov 2018)"
95 points Bruce Sanderson (Wine Spectator): "A rich, voluptuous red, boasting black cherry, plum, earth, spice and mineral flavors. Fluid, showing terrific structure and fine harmony. The finish lingers with fruit and oak spice notes. Decant now if you must, but better to cellar for a few years. Best from 2023 through 2042. (3/11/20)"

93-95 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a very precise bouquet, a little introverted at first, that features a mixture of red and black fruit and seems to grow in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with touches of tobacco and graphite lacing the dark plum and blackberry fruit. Very harmonious and long in the mouth, displaying a touch of brine toward the long finish. Excellent. Drink: 2023-2050. (Jan 2019)"
94 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from Les Cruots which is also known as Vignes Blanches). A beautifully spicy nose consists primarily of the cool essence of red cherry, currant and lavender. There is a succulent and caressing mouthfeel to the sleek and relatively supple medium weight flavors that possess excellent punch on the lingering and youthfully austere finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. There is a hint of warmth but overall this firm effort remains quite well-balanced. Drink: 2029+. (Jan 2020)"
