96 points James Suckling: "Enveloping nose of orange blossom and perfectly ripe oranges with underlying complexity from long sur-lie aging. Then comes an expansive, yet energetic palate with the kind of concentration and richness we associate with Grand Cru from the Cotes d'Or. Stunning mineral freshness at the very long finish. The first vintage of this wine, from a very high-altitude, south-southwest facing site with vines planted in 1939. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (12/5/22)"

90-93 points/'5-Star Wine' Jasper Morris MW (Inside Burgundy): "New in 2020, Les Charmelottes faces south with a bit of southwest. The make-up of the vineyard is marl with white limestone below, entirely different from the red soil of Les Combes. Pale lemon yellow, with lovely tension to this Montagny with impressive body, a little touch of sandalwood from the barrel, elegant and long. Very fine. Drink from 2023-2028. (Feb 2022)"
