96 points Charles Curtis, MW (Decanter): "The deeply coloured Charmes boasts an impressively ripe plummy fruit with menthol, earth, and smoke accents. The tannic structure is silky and very fine – less grippy than many – and enough extract ensures that the finish lingers invitingly on the palate. The grapes are from four parcels split between Aux Charmes and Mazoyères; approximately 85% were fermented as whole clusters in 2022, with fewer punch-downs to avoid over-extraction. The result is elegant and very fine. Drinking Window: 2035-2075. (11/2/23)"

92-95 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "A powerful mid purple. The bouquet has a concentrated dark fruit but a little sterner than some examples. Then a really plump fruit in the mouth, with some drier tannins behind, 75% whole bunch vinification here as it tends to show more. The ripest wine which rather shows. (Nov 2023)"

92-94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "At 14.1% alcohol, the 2022 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is the most powerful wine in the cellar, offering up aromas of cherries, plums, potpourri, orange rind and spices, followed by a full-bodied, rich and layered palate that's textural and muscular. (1/18/24)"

92-94 points Allen Meadows (Burghound) "(from a total of .70 ha in both Charmes and Mazoyères). Once again there is just enough wood present to be noticed but not intrude on the overtly floral and appealingly spicy mix of both red and dark cherry, violet and forest floor scents. There is a positively gorgeous mouthfeel if only average density to the medium-bodied flavors that tighten up substantially as the finish is robust and borderline rustic. This could use better depth but 10 or years of bottle aging should address that. Drink: 2034+. (Jan 2024)"

92-94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2022 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has impressive purity and vigor on the nose: black cherries and boysenberry fruit, slightly glossy in style, perhaps a bit of summer sun imparting more opulence. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry and bilberry fruit and saturated tannins. It’s harmonious, though it needs a little more mineralité toward the finish. There's a soupçon of hedonism and warmth here…there's nothing wrong with that. Drink: 2027-2047. (Jan 2024)"
