92-94 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): "The 2016 Corton Les Marechaudes Grand Cru has a very well-defined bouquet with black cherry, bergamot and Spanish oranges, very well defined and conveying superb energy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly grainy tannin, minerals lingering on the structured, très Corton finish. This is utterly charming. Drink: 2021-2040. (Dec 2017)"

93 points Tim Atkin, MW.

92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A ripe and agreeably fresh nose offers up aromas of violet, red currant and earth, all of which is trimmed in whiffs of soft spice and oak. The mouth feel of the middle weight plus flavors is more elegant than it usually is while delivering very good depth and persistence on the bitter cherry-inflected finish. This firmly structured effort should drink well after 6 to 8 years of cellaring though need 12 to 15 to fully resolve. Drink: 2031+. (Apr 2019)"
