93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from 3 different parcels totaling .61 ha, one of which is in Puligny and the other two are in Chassagne; the vines are a mix of ages between 15 and 30+ years). A more restrained nose features ripe aromas of both white and yellow orchard fruit, and in particular white peach and apricot, along with wisps of citrus peel and acacia blossom. There is once again a succulent and seductive mouthfeel to the bigger-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of sappy dry extract before terminating in a powerful and impressively persistent finish. Like several of the wines in the range, the 2018 Bâtard would benefit from developing more depth but given the probable aging curve, that should be feasible. Drink: 2028+. (Jun 2020)"

Bill Nanson (Burgundy Report): "A large plot was replanted after the frost of 2016 – so a new wall comes too. But there are three important parcels for this domaine, one in Puligny and two in Chassagne. Fuller again, but fresh and citrus – that’s a great invitation. Wider, but essentially similar to the Bienvenues – mineral, melting, mouth-watering, long, with a finish possibly even bigger than the Bienvenues. Proper grand crus these wine – excellent!
