- (89-91) points - "Top Producer" - Burghound: "(from a 1.06 ha parcel planted in 1950) This too is quite aromatically fresh with more pepper influence on the pretty mix of red currant and airy floral nuances. There is equally good vibrancy and detail to the lighter weight flavors where the relatively sleek texture contrasts somewhat with the dusty, serious and moderately structured finale. This is really quite good and worthy of consideration. Drink 2025+."- Allen Meadows, Burghound
- (88-90) points - Wine Advocate: "From seventy-year-old vines, the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet La Goujonne bursts from the glass with a perfumed bouquet of crunchy red fruits and flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, succulent and flavorful, with a light structuring chassis of youthfully chewy tannin and a mouthwatering finish."- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
