92-94(+) points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes is a beauty, soaring from the glass with aromas of cherries, raspberries, rose petals, orange rind and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, its exquisitely refined tannins are cloaked in an ample core of sapid, concentrated fruit. This is well worth seeking out.. (Feb 2020)"
91-93 points and 'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .23 ha parcel). This too is very spicy with its liqueur-like aromas of cherry, black raspberry and poached plum. The highly energetic medium weight flavors possess a seductive texture along with good volume and sappy dry extract that helps to buffer the very firm but not rigid tannic spine on the even more complex and persistent finale. Lovely juice with fine potential. Drink: 2030+. (Jan 2020)"
90-93 points Jasper Morris, MW: "No whole bunch here – Gilbert is still experimenting to find what work’s best. Deep purple almost black at the centre. Very inky style of fruit, for my palate I prefer it when the whole bunch lightens the wine up more. Hugely concentrated stuff, very ripe but not cooked with just enough acidity. Tasted: November 2019."
