91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Features lovely blackberry and raspberry fruit, melded with black licorice and fruitcake accents. Pretty spice details show on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 1,200 cases made. (2019)"
91-93 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Clos Badon Thunevin is deep purple-black colored and a little grumpy to begin, offering glimpses at tar, tilled soil and creosol notes, giving way to a core of blackberry pie, baked plums and fruitcake plus touches of molten licorice, black tea and Provence herbs. Full-bodied, the muscular black fruit completely coats the mouth, framed by ripe, rounded tannins and delivering surprisingly great freshness, finishing long and spicy. (Apr 2019)"
90-92+ points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Clos Badon Thunevin is another hedonistic wine from Jean-Luc Thunevin. Its deep purple color is followed by ample jammy black and blue fruits as well as complex notes of graphite, charcoal, and a touch of minerality. It has good density, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Drink this plump, sexy Saint-Émilion on release and over the following 15 years or more. (May 2019)"
