95-98 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "Deep ruby. Brooding, profound aromas and flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, black cherry, licorice and animal fur, complicated by smoky soil tones. Wonderfully thick and dense; primary and backward but not at all hard. Most impressive today on the refined back end, finishing with noble, seamless tannins, intense black cherry and violet lift, and terrific pungent stony minerality. Another stunning wine in the making from a vineyard that was planted in 1882. This Charmes is Chambertin-like in its soil complexity, power and grip. (Jan 2018)"

97 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Très Vieilles Vignes is showing superbly from bottle, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet in which notes of blackcurrants, cherries, spiced plums and dark chocolate mingle with nuances of peony, orange rind and grilled meats. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and dense, with a layered and immensely concentrated core that largely conceals the wine's rich structuring tannins, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This Charmes' precision and definition rank it a touch higher than the domaine's 2015, though it would be fascinating to taste the two side-by-side. Drink: 2026-2060. (Jan 2019)"

96 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes has the most refined and compelling bouquet of Roty’s three Grand Crus: exquisite delineation and precision, blackberry and raspberry coulis, hints of crushed stone and pressed rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly toasty black fruit, very intense and multi-dimensional. Great precision on the finish, with blood orange and hints of liquorice lingering on the aftertaste. This just rivets you to the spot. Drink: 2024-2050. (Oct 2019)"

94 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .16 ha parcel in Charmes proper of vines planted in 1885 that have never been pulled up though Roty points out that those that have died over the years have been replanted). More moderate, though hardly invisible, oak influence can be found on the notably ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum and a panoply of spice and earth elements. The detailed, powerful and punchy imposingly-scaled flavors possess first-rate mid-palate density as the sappy dry extract coats the mouth on the very firmly structured finish that flashes both better depth and persistence. Excellent quality though again note well that this is very serious and will need extended aging. Drink: 2036+. (Jan 2019)"
