93 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "The 2015 Clos Badon is medium garnet-purple in color with a nose of cedar, toast, baking spices and chocolate box with a red and black currants core plus black forest and menthol suggestions. The medium to full-bodied mouth is packed with fruit and has great balance and depth with a velvety texture and a long, layered finish. Drink: 2019-2035. (Feb 2018)"

92-93 points James Suckling: "A chewy wine that shows polished tannins plus lots of tar and berry character. Wet earth too. Full and savory. (4/29/16)"

91.5 points CellarTracker.com community score.

91 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2015 Clos Badon is plush, dense and full of character. Inky blue/black fruit, scorched earth, torrefaction, smoke and licorice infuse this dramatic, intense Saint-Émilion. Clos Badon is neither shy nor subtle, but it is very well balanced for such an overt wine. Drink: 2020-2030. (Feb 2018)"

90 points Wine Spectator: "Warm ganache, crushed plum and cherry compote flavors form a fleshy, forward mix, backed by an encore of ganache on the finish. A crowd-pleaser, with enough fresh acidity to stay honest. Drink now through 2024. 417 cases made. (2018)"

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Thunevin’s 2015 Clos Badon Thunevin is a total charmer that’s well worth seeking out. Revealing copious amounts of black raspberries, toasted spice, and licorice, it’s medium-bodied, moderately concentrated, with fine tannin, and a surprisingly elegant, polished style that makes it already hard to resist. It should last for 10-15 years. Drink: 2018-2033. (11/30/17)"
