94-97 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Good dense colour. Young vines since 2003 have changed the quality here, positively, as a counterpoint to the ancient vines. Cyrielle points out that their Clos is on white oolite blanc which retains humidity well. Lovely density of pure red fruit beneath, almost an orange touch, remarkably fine yet again. Touch of liquorice at the back. (Nov 2018)"

94-96 points Neal Martin (Vinous) "The 2017 Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes Grand Cru has a pixelated bouquet that really expresses the limestone soils of this vineyard: subtle pressed iris scents infuse the red berry fruit, all with brilliant delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is a fine bead of acidity here, again, a little spicy (the leitmotif throughout the Rousseau range) with impressive grip and persistence on the finish. Excellent. Drink: 2024-2040. (Jan 2019)

93-96 points Fine Wine Review: "This is a medium-weight wine with red fruits, stoniness, some juiciness, and roundness. Some nervosity here, too. (3/18/19)"

95+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2017 Clos des Ruchottes is a stunning young wine. The bouquet is very red fruity again, soaring from the glass in a blaze of red plums, red and black cherries, a touch of raspberry, raw cocoa, a very complex base of soil tones, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a sappy core, great transparency, ripe, seamless tannins and a very long, very pure and complex finish. I love the combination here of supreme elegance, but with the volume and grip turned way up on the very energetic and precise finish. 2029-2080. (Nov/Dec 2018)"
