94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2015 Clos Guillot from the Baudry family is another absolutely outstanding example of the vintage. The wine is nicely cool for this hot growing season, coming in at a very refined 12.5 percent octane and offering up a young and absolutely stellar bouquet of sweet dark berries, a touch of chicory, cigar smoke, complex, gravelly soil tones, a bit of roasted meats and a gently floral topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and beautifully balanced, with a superb core of fruit, excellent transparency, ripe, moderately chewy tannins and great length and grip on the complex and very, very promising finish. This is a young wine and needs time in the cellar to allow its secondary layers to emerge, but it is so cunningly well balanced that it is already quite easy to drink in its youth! 2023-2065. (Sep/Oct 2018)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "[$38 list] A fresh style, with a pretty display of cherry and red currant fruit that has been gently infused with thyme, bay leaf and olive hints. Offers a lightly mulled edge on the finish, along with a fine thread of chalky minerality. Drink now through 2021. 200 cases imported. (11/15/18)"
