93-95 points Fine Wine Review: "Wild, floral nose. Wild fruits in mouth, dense, red fruits, grapefruits. Dense. Nervy. Like Montrachet, pick later than before. Vineyard is 100% east-facing in Ladoix (Tollot-Beaut, Faiveley are there, too). Domaine wine. (4/3/20)"
94 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Bouchard Père's Corton-Charlemagne hails from a cool, east-facing site on yellow marls soils in Aloxe-Corton and is one of the last parcels to be picked. Fermented in 20% new wood, it's still a pretty rich Grand Cru white, with breadth, texture and a drizzle of honey, but there's also plenty of balancing acidity, sap and minerality. Appealing stuff. Drinking Window: 2022-2030. (Oct 2019)"
92-94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from 3.9 hectares of east-facing vines at 350m altitude. It has an attractive if not quite an exciting bouquet of beeswax and jasmine notes. The palate is livelier, demonstrating good tension. Quintessentially Corton-Charlemagne in texture, with a resinous, sappy finish that gets the saliva flowing. Drink over the next two decades. Drink: 2021-2042. (Jan 2020)"
