95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

With the 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, Rapet has produced his finest white since 2014. The wine opens in the glass with a classy nose of ripe lemons, green apple, white flowers and crushed chalk, framed by subtle hints of oatmeal and beeswax. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with excellent concentration and broad shoulders, but also promising structural tension and reserve. The long, chalky finish is penetrating and intense. This is well worth seeking out. (WK)

94pts Allen Meadows - Burghound

Here the nose is clean, elegant and pure with its combination of green apple, citrus, white flower and wet stone nuances. There is both outstanding volume and mid-palate density to the intensely mineral-driven large-scaled flavors that are at once caressing but muscular before concluding in a compact, serious and beautifully persistent finish. This clearly needs to develop more depth but with the impressive development potential and extended aging curve this appears to possess, the complexity should gradually arrive. Drink: 2027+

92pts Vinous

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru offers attractive, mineral-rich aromas of yellow flowers, honeysuckle and orange pith, gathering intensity with aeration. The taut, linear palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and a delicate touch of spice toward the finish. It just misses the fatness, the gras-like element, that one seeks in Corton-Charlemagne, though it feels persistent. (NM)
