95-98 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
he 2018 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru is also showing beautifully, bursting with aromas of raspberries, red cherries, cassis and raw cocoa that are complemented by fragrant top notes of orange rind, rose petals and violets. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, lively and elegant, with finer-grained tannins than the more overtly muscular Clos de la Roche, but with similar dimension and mid-palate presence, concluding with a long and perfumed finish.
92-94 Points Allen Meadows
This is actually quite aromatically similar to the Clos de la Roche but with even more spice and a bit more floral influence as well. There is excellent volume to the seductively textured, fleshy and succulent medium weight flavors that firm up immediately on the firm and serious but slightly better balanced finale. Patience is once again strongly suggested.
95-97 Points Vinous
The 2018 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a wonderful bouquet of blackberry, wild strawberry, crushed rocks/sandstone and touches of dried blood. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, brown spices and a slight charcoal-like note. Moderate depth, quite masculine in style, a little austerity on the finish… but that is what you want from a Clos Saint-Denis.
