94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru is one of the best expressions of this noble vineyard in this vintage. Limpid argent in hue, it has a taut, fresh, flinty bouquet that you might misconstrue as coming from a cooler growing season, a testament to Billaud’s winemaking skill. The palate is likewise underpinned by a fine line of acidity that keeps this Les Clos poised, refreshing and revivifyingly saline. There is just a light sour lemon note mixed with a tang of ginger on the finish, completing a very fine Les Clos that comes highly recommended. Drink: 2022-2040. (Sep 2020)"
94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Unlike Monsieur Billaud’s bottling of les Preuses, his les Clos is entirely barrel-fermented and aged three year-old in four hundred and fifty liter demi-muids (the les Preuses is partially fermented in stainless steel before receiving a similar elevage). The 2018 les Clos delivers a refined bouquet of lemon, pear, apple, flinty minerality, a nice touch of oyster shell, paraffin, acacia blossoms and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, complex and beautifully endowed at the core, with good ripe fruit, excellent acidity and grip, lovely focus and a long, vibrant and very well-balanced finish. This is a first class example of les Clos! It is not quite as racy as the 2018 les Preuses, but it has outstanding depth and backend palate authority. 2022-2055. (Jul/Aug 2020)"
