96 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Thibault Liger-Belair's Charmes-Chambertin comes from the Aux Charmes climat, close to Chambertin. Made with 70% whole bunches (with the central stem removed) and 100% new wood, this is fresh, sappy and very aromatic, with subtle wood, some clove and white pepper spice and good underlying minerality and tension, as the French like to say. Drinking Window: 2025-2030. (Nov 2018)"

93-96 points Jasper Morris, MW: "460% whole bunch as is usual here. 100% new wood. Heady ripe crushed strawberries, and some finer detailed alpine strawberries too, along with some new oak notes, not out of order. Dark fruit energy behind with some greener inflections from the stems. Interesting complex wine and the finish has some of the luscious, rich red fruit of Charmes and a very long finish. (Nov 2018)"
