89-92 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Clear pale colour with a lemon tint. This is a bit more muscular than Chevalières, if less fine. A tiny touch of reduction, some yellow fruit, medium bodied with good length. Today Chevalières is more stylish but this has the chance to refine further in tank. (Nov 2019)"
91 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Jean-Philippe Fichet’s 2018 Tesson is a lovely bottle of Meursault, with a bit more mineral undertow than the le Meix Sous le Château in this vintage. The first class nose jumps from the glass in a combination of pear, lime blossoms, almond, chalky minerality, fruit blossoms, a touch of iodine and a lovely foundation of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, pure and full-bodied, with a good core, fine mineral drive and grip, sound acidity and a long, complex and very nicely balanced finish. This is a bit lighter on its feet than the le Meix Sous le Château and will last longer in bottle, but it too shows just a bit of extra ripeness in 2018 compared to most vintages of this fine cuvée. Drinking Window: 2021-2035. (Jan/Feb 2021)"
Bill Nanson (Burgundy Report): "A fine, if less intense nose, a hint floral. Hmm, very mineral, wide, lovely energy, mouth-watering, long. This is super, showing extra elegance after the Chevalier. (Oct 2019)"
