94 points World of Fine Wine: "Expressive, juicy, spicy; lots of mineral cherry fruit and a huge finish. Will be lovely. (Issue #67; 2020)"

93+ points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Another of the high points of this year's range is the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot, a promising wine offering up scents of cassis, wild berries, rich soil tones, smoke and a deft framing of toasty new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, with more flesh on its elegant, structural bones than the Taillepieds, but similarly lively acidity. (Jan 2020)"

93 points James Suckling: "Blueberry, plum and flower aromas with some new leather. It’s full-bodied with lots of fruit and density. Flavorful and stylish at the finish. A little tight now. Try after 2022. (8/25/20)"

92-93 points Fine Wine Review: "Very dark color, dark fruits in nose and mouth, less developed than the previous wines. Ripe, with Caillerets texture, round, soft. This was a later malo than previous wines. Domaine wine. (4/3/20)"

90-93 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "This is compositionally similar to the Taillepieds but even riper and with just a bit more spice elements. There is good intensity and minerality on the delicious middle weight flavors that also coat the palate on the youthfully austere and slightly warm finish that delivers fine length. Drink: 2030+. (Apr 2020)"
