95 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Maxime Cheurlin is always particularly enthusiastic about this bottling from the lower part of the Les Beaux Monts, and rightly so. It's generally his densest and most backward premier cru, with 80% new wood for added backbone. It's fresh, savoury and sappy, with compact bramble and black cherry fruit, a twist of fennel and a long, tapering finish. Drinking Window: 2022-2030. (Nov 2018)"

93-94 points Steen Öhman (Winehog): "The Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts is quite a notch up in both concentration and intensity from the Petit Monts. This a very elegant wine with plenty of depth and length. Clearly one of the stars of the vintage – 2017 .. displaying all effortless and delightful 2017 fruitiness. Drink from 2028. Very Fine. (11/15/18)"

92-94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts is completely de-stemmed and raised in 100% new oak. Now this has a great bouquet: very well defined with intense black cherry and kirsch aromas, deftly controlled and focused. The medium-bodied palate displays dense tannin, and the new oak is quite vocal at the moment but should be subsumed with bottle age. Do I think less new oak would have been preferable? Yes. But I still think this should mature into a fine Les Beaux Monts. Drink: 2022-2038. (Jan 2019)"

91-94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Deep dark colour but the fruit is not too brooding. Indeed, it flows through very nicely and has the matter to manage its new wood (75%). There is just enough acidity alongside the encouraging deep red fruit, and very good length. Tasted: November 2018. (Nov 2018)"

93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .45 ha parcel in Les Beaux Monts Bas which is in Flagey). A high-toned if reserved and cool nose blends notes of pomegranate, red cherry and plenty of spice and floral influences that include orange pekoe tea, anise, sandalwood and a whiff of oak. The sleek, intense and delineated medium weight flavors are borderline pungently mineral-driven, all wrapped in a balanced and beautifully persistent finish. This is a seriously lovely effort that is a classic VRBM. Drink: 2029+. (Jan 2020)"

93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Maxime Cheurlin’s 2017 Beaux Monts is also an outstanding wine in the making, but a bit more reserved in profile out of the blocks than the Petits Monts. Surprisingly, Monsieur Cheurlin used all new oak for the elevage of this wine in 2017, but the integration of new oak here is seamless and I would have guessed that this was raised in the same percentage as the Petits Monts if not told differently. The bouquet is still fairly primary, but shows enormous potential in its blend of cassis, black raspberries, venison, bitter chocolate, woodsmoke, dark soil tones and spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent focus and grip, ripe tannins, impeccable balance and a long, nascently complex and very promising finish. Fine, fine juice. 2027-2065. (Nov/Dec 2018)"
