- (89-91) points - Burghound: "A distinctly different aromatic profile is composed of resin, rosemary oil, petrol and a whiff of the exotic. The round, rich and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors possess more volume but not the same minerality, all wrapped in a lingering if again mildly rustic finish. Good quality here. Drink 2024+."- Allen Meadows, Burghound
- (89-91) points - Wine Advocate: "Aromas of lime zest, mandarin orange, honey and white flowers introduce the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Le Concis du Champs, a satiny, medium-bodied wine with tangy acids, a layered mid-palate and a bright, pure finish."- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
