Les Petits Monts is owned by Véronique Drouhin rather than her family, which may be why she's such a huge fan of the premier cru. This is particularly impressive in 2017, using 35% new wood and 40% whole bunches to good effect. It's textured, fresh and elegant, showing lovely red cherry and angostura bitters notes, with chiselled minerality and very subtle wood.

(92 - 94 points) The 2017 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Petits Monts is lovely, wafting from the glass with aromas of sweet dark berries, smoked meats, spices, rich soil, grilled game and a delicate framing of new wood. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, with an ample and enveloping core of fruit, supple tannins and juicy acids, concluding with good length on the finish.- WK

(92-94 points) The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Petits Monts 1er Cru is one of the last vineyards Drouhin picked, and there is just a little bit of vinification intégrale used in this wine. It has quite a powerful bouquet of strawberry pastilles, raspberry and light rose petal aromas, quite pure and complex, deserving of this excellent Premier Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, beautiful pure cranberry and raspberry fruit and real race and vigor toward the structured finish. This is one of the best Petits Monts I have tasted this vintage. Five barrels produced. -- Neal Martin

There’s a very attractive rose and spice edge to the fresh red cherries here, as well as a subtle, earthy nuance. The palate has a beautiful array of plush, smooth cherry flesh with long, velvety tannins that are very approachable already. Try from 2022.
