92-94 points Fine Wine Review: "At northern limit of Baudes, planted north-south. Pure, slightly sappy red and dark berry fruit. Good density and depth. 25% whole cluster. (12/11/18)"
93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2017 les Baudes has a bit of whole clusters this year, so there is some of that nice early spice elements from the inclusion of the stems. The bouquet is flat out great right out of the blocks, jumping from the glass in a mix of red and black cherries, pigeon, complex soil tones, mustard seed, woodsmoke, the aforementioned stem spice tones and a touch of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent focus and grip, fine-grained tannins and a long, nascently complex and tangy finish. This is more structured than the Chabiots (Baudes is next to Bonnes-Mares after all) and will need a few more years in the cellar to start to blossom, but it will be an outstanding and very elegant example of its terroir in the fullness of time. 2027-2075. (Nov/Dec 2018)"
93 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Laurent Lignier's parcel is located on stony red soils close to Bonnes Mares and shows something of the grand cru's structure and reticence. Firm sappy and dense, it's a Chambolle that nods towards Morey-St-Denis in style, with 25% whole bunches adding some sap and texture. It needs time. Drink: 2024-2030. (Nov 2018)"
