94-97 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Here the almost unbelievably complex nose is notably more restrained than that of the Demoiselles with its pure white rose, lavender, pear and lemon rind suffused nose. There is excellent richness and outstanding size, weight and power to the overtly muscular flavors that are also blessed with an abundance of dry extract that buffers the very firm acid backbone on the explosively long and palate staining finish. This is potentially a monument in the making if it can continue to add depth as it ages and the potential to do so certainly appears to be present. (6/2016)

95 points Vinous

Aromas of stone and citrus fruits, clove and violet. Sweet, fat and superconcentrated, with an almost syrupy quality to its stone fruit and spice flavors. Thick, solid, tactile wine, from a crop level of just 20 hectoliters per hectare. Best today on the very long, inexorable finish but this is more about texture than flavor in the early going. (Drink between 2026-2040) (from vines on the Chassagne side of this grand cru). ST (9/2016)

93-95 points Wine Advocate

The 2014 Montrachet Grand Cru has a much more nuanced bouquet than the Chevalier Montrachet, brilliantly defined but more conservative in some ways. It gently unfurls in the glass with touches of citrus peel, flint and melted wax, although I found the Chevalier more engaging at the moment. The palate is supremely well balanced with perfect acidity, just a hint of honey floating in the background, but perhaps missing a little complexity and detail on the finish compared to both the Chevalier and the Bâtard. This is very fine, but it is not the grand cru that I would choose from Louis Jadot...at least not this year. NM (12/2015)
