91-93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Meursault 'Vendange Sélectionée' comes from 70- to 75-year-old vines on chalky soils located just below Santenots-du-Milieu. It has a perfumed bouquet of yellow plum, orange pith and light honeyed notes. The palate is showing more harmony and precision than the Meursault Village at the moment, as well as good depth and a touch of ginger on the finish. Excellent. Drink: 2023-2040. (Jan 2020)"

92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2018 Meursault 'Vendanges Selectionées' is a small step up in both depth and complexity from the straight villages. The nose delivers a fine combination of pear, passion fruit, hazelnut, chalky minerality, an incipient hint of honeycomb and a discreet framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and quite racy in personality, with a fine core, lovely minerality and impressive precision and grip on the beautifully balanced finish. This will probably start to drink very well around the same time as the straight Meursault, with only a few years’ worth of bottle age, but will deliver just a bit more complexity and core. 2023-2050. (Nov/Dec 2019)"

91 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "An step up over the domaine's regular bottling, the 2018 Meursault Vendanges Sélectionnées reveals aromas of crisp green pear, white flowers, beeswax and smoke. It's medium to full-bodied, with more depth and tension, concluding with a chalky finish. As usual, this cuvée derives from parcels that touch Santenots. Drink: 2022-2038. (Jan 2020)"
