93-95 points Steen Öhman (Winehog): "The 2016 vintage is a year that offers more concentration and intensity – qualities evident in this Renardes from Mallard. The 2016 is powerful and intense – coming from a 0.75-ha plot. The nose offers mineral/earth notes and floral aromas of ripe cassis and red cherries. There is a wonderful sense of vivaciousness to this delightful and powerful wine. It’s long, refined and elegant – but needs time! Drink from 2029. Very Fine+. (5/23/19)"

93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A gentle hint of wood sets off even fresher if brooding and more animale, earth and floral-inflected aromas of ripe cassis and red cherry scents. There is a wonderful sense of verve to the overtly powerful, intense and well-muscled big-bodied flavors that culminate in a gorgeously persistent finish that offers excellent complexity and balance on the clearly built-to-age finish. Drink: 2033+. (Apr 2019)"
93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2016 Corton-Renardes Grand Cru has a bright, elegant and almost understated bouquet that delivers red cherry and crushed strawberry scents mixed with wet limestone and a touch of spice. It gains intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and finely-tuned acidity, smooth in texture with lovely red cherry, raspberry and allspice notes towards the harmonious finish. There is a completeness to this Corton that I appreciate. Excellent. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. Drink: 2022-2042. (Oct 2019)"
