Jasper Morris from "Inside Burgundy" awarded this wine with a score of 91. He noted that Pézerolles is an "earthy and iron rich site which keeps cool," and that this particular wine is crafted from a blend of 35 and 45-year-old vines, with 20% of the stems retained during vinification. Morris describes the wine as having a "much darker colour" with "sweetly perfumed dark fruit" and a "hint of volatile" aromas, which he attributes to the whole bunch fermentation typical of that year. He praises its "real weight" and finds it "quite exciting" as long as the volatile elements remain balanced. Morris concludes that the wine has a "very classy" finish, showing "greater purity."

Burghound also rated the 2018 Domaine Ballot-Millot Pommard les Pezerolles with a score of 91. This review highlights an "interesting contrast between the delicacy of the mid-palate and the moderately firm tannic backend." Burghound notes a "whiff of menthol" in the aroma profile, accompanied by "nicely layered aromas of violet, lilac, earth and red currant scents." The wine's "succulent and somewhat more refined middle weight flavors" are commended, with a "discreet bead of minerality on the sneaky long finish" that "tightens up yet fans out as it sits on the palate."

In summary, the 2018 Domaine Ballot-Millot Pommard les Pezerolles is a well-crafted Pinot Noir with a balanced profile. Both reviewers appreciated its complex aromas and flavors, with particular emphasis on its dark fruit, floral notes, and minerality.
