91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roy continues to show spectacularly, bursting from the glass with aromas of violet, cherries, cassis, subtle grilled meat and espresso roast. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied with broader shoulders and more density and structure than the finer-boned Evocelles, its rich tannins nicely cloaked in a core of pure and succulent fruit, concluding with a long finish. While it won't demand as much bottle age as the 2016 or 2015 renditions, it will reward at least a handful of years of bottle age and drink well for two decades thereafter. This cuvée derives from vines between 50 and 108 years of age located in the lieux-dits Epointures, Combe du Dessus, Jouise and Les Marchais. It was vinified with around 40% whole cluster and matured in 60% new oak.(WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Matured in two-thirds new oak, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin "Cuvée Coeur du Roy" has a very pure black cherry and boysenberry scented bouquet. The oak is neatly integrated and the 50% whole bunches impart a subtle undergrowth scent. The palate is packed full of sucrosity on the entry, slightly confit in style with macerated small black cherries, blueberry and a dash of white pepper towards the spicy finish. This will deserve five or six years in bottle, but there is very good potential here.(NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark (from vines of 50 to 100+ years of age situated in Epointures, Combe du Dessus, Jouise, and Les Marchais; vinified with 50% of the stems). Once again the aromatic expression is quite reserved while being filled with floral nuances that add a touch of elegance to the cool and pure essence of red currant, earth and herbal tea scents. There is excellent intensity to the sleek and mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess fine depth and persistence on the very firmly structured finish. 2029+ Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

89-92pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "From 50 to 108 years old vines, from Combe dessus, Epointures and Marchais (behind the house). 50% new wood and 50% whole bunch vinification. Glowing rich purple, this has no reductive character and much more fresh red fruit concentration, while the oak adds another significant part of its character. Good acid balance. In fact, the acidity is quite prominent Tasted: December 2018."
