90-92 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Côtes de Nuits Villages has a wonderful, very pure bouquet of perfumed raspberry, wild strawberry and pressed flower aromas that unfold with great precision. The palate is medium-bodied with a vibrant, very focused and elegant entry, just about perfect acidity, and plenty of poise on a finish worthy of a premier cru. Yep – that good. Go buy. Drink: 2021-2032. (Jan 2020)"
90+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2018 Côte de Nuits Villages from Domaine Bachelet is truly exceptional, coming in at 12.5 percent octane and offering up a very pure and precise bouquet of sweet dark berries, grilled meats, black cherries, bitter chocolate and a complex base of dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and already nicely suave on the attack, with a good core of fruit, a very elegant personality and just a touch of backend tannin perking up the long and classy finish. Flat out delicious wine in the making. 2022-2040. (Nov/Dec 2019)"
