94 Points! A blockbuster from Saint-Emilion, the 2015 Château Badette (95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, raised in new barrels) is a broad, expansive, opulent beauty that’s loaded with ripe dark fruits, chocolate, smoke, and saddle leather aromas and flavors. While a big, rich wine, it stays beautifully balanced and pure, yet dark, chocolatey fruit is certainly the buzzword here. It’s a winner and will keep for two decades. This estate covers 10 hectares all located in the lieu-dit of Badette and was purchased in 2012 by a Belgian wine merchant. This is another estate more than worth keeping on your radar. - Jeb Dunnuck
94 Points!  94+ Points! A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French oak for 18 months, the 2015 Badette is deep garnet-purple in color with pronounced baked plums, crème de cassis and chocolate-covered cherries on the nose plus black truffles, rose hip tea and spice box nuances. Full-bodied, rich and opulent, hitting the palate with a powerful and compelling wall of black and blue fruits plus oodles of spicy accents, it has gorgeous, velvety tannins and fantastic length. - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
 
93 Points!  This has a sheen of hazelnut-flavored oak set around fresh violets, cassis and blue plums. The palate has a stunning array of fluid, pastry-like tannins that deliver a ripe plum-stone finish. Try from 2020.  James Suckling, 2/2018
