93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2018 Bougros from Samuel Billaud is a lovely wine, but, out of the blocks, it is one of the more open grand crus from the estate. This is of course to be expected, as this is one of the warmer microclimates amongst the grand cru vineyards. The wine offers up a ripe and pure bouquet of pear, a hint of tangerine, a beautifully complex base of chalky soil tones, paraffin and a beautifully restrained framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, ripe, focused and vibrant, with a fine core of fruit, good mineral drive and bounce, lovely acids and a long, complex and quite wide open finish. This wine still has more complexity to deliver with further bottle age, but of all these superb Samuel Billaud 2018 grand crus, this is the one that is really drinking with generosity right out of the blocks! 2020-2060. (Jul/Aug 2020)"
