92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc, from vines just across the road from Pavie (down on the lower plain), the 2016 Clos Badon has a pretty, perfumed, elegant style as well as a great nose of currants, camphor, dried soil, and spice box. Drink this beautifully balanced, medium-bodied, seamless Saint-Emilion any time over the coming 10-15 years. Drink: 2019-2034. (2/28/19)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2016 Clos Badon-Thunevin is just as gorgeous from bottle as it was from barrel. Sumptuous, racy and inviting, the 2016 has so much to offer. As always, Clos Badon is a rich, heady Saint-Émilion. Super-ripe blackberry, chocolate, espresso and spice build into the creamy, super-expressive finish. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Drink: 2020-2031. (Jan 2019)"

92 points James Suckling: "This is ripe and very open with chewy and juicy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Full body. Savory. Drink after 2023. (2/3/19)"
