Decanter, 93 Points 

"Softer impression to the nose than the 2019, but overlaid with a sense of minerality following through to the palate. This vintage is a halfway house between the old style (very flavourful and full-bodied), and the new style (fresher with more sense of tension). It shows a perfect balance between fruity and savoury, with some light lactic impressions at the end. ‘This is Clos Rougeard with all the complexity from citrus to exotic fruits,’ says winemaker Jacques-Antoine Toublanc.

Vinous, 91 Points 

"The 2018 Breze is a clay-ey site, giving richness to the wine.  It is round, silky and succulent, reflecting this sunny, warm vintage.  It is at a beautiful stage in its evolution: developing almond characters alongside white peach.  There’s fine acid rather than a racy profile but with a gourmand texture.  Pastry, peach, and almond linger on the long finish."
