Average Score 90.42

A linear and beautiful wine with a fine line of tannins and fresh fruit. Medium to body, hints of walnuts and a citrus undertone. Excellent. Mar 2017,
The 2016 Clos Badon, which is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, has an almost Burgundy-like purity on the nose, the 100% new oak neatly integrated. The palate is smooth in the mouth, slightly viscous in texture but redeemed by a keen line of acidity. This is a rich and opulent, modern-style Saint Emilion but provides a sensuality that is not common in this masculine vintage. This is certainly a level up from the 2015 Clos Badon. Apr 2017,, Drink: 2022-2040
The 2016 Clos Badon is round, succulent and quite open today. Ripe black cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate and spice are fused together in a deep, unctuous Saint Émilion built on texture and juiciness. The 2016 is a gorgeous modern Saint Émilion with no hard edges and plenty of personality. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2017,
Lovely juicy fruit here that really emphasises the floral side of Cabernet Franc, no doubt helped by its sandy soils. It's not a blockbuster type of terroir, and has instead delivered a fragrant, pretty wine that I can absolutely recommend. It has been entirely organic for the past three years. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2017,, Drink: 2027-2040
This has a hefty toasty note, with baker’s chocolate and roasted vanilla bean accents draping over the core of plum and fig fruit. Loamy echo on the finish. More breadth than cut right now, though there is a sense of polish and integration. Apr 2017, James Molesworth,
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Clos Badon Thunevin features chocolate-covered cherries, kirsch and black raspberries scents with hints of cinnamon toast and rose hip tea. Medium to full-bodied, it is packed with black fruits and red fruit accents, framed by firm, chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing earthy. Nov 2018,
