Jasper Morris, 97 Points 

"The most perfect balance by the book, between sugar and acidity, a vineyard that came through the drought very easily. Very pure, very concentrated, yet with not a single point of additional ripeness. There is a natural tension throughout, a complete sense of harmony and the full volume of fruit continues at an even pace right across the palate. Fresh plums, and exceptional persistence." 

Wine Advocate, 96 Points 

"The 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes is brilliant, offering up a complex bouquet of pear, crisp stone fruits, clear honey, baking spices, wheat toast and hazelnuts. Medium to full-bodied, deep and taut, it's extremely concentrated, with racy acids and an abundance of chalky structuring extract. This site has really excelled this year." 

Decanter, 95 Points 

"Rich and powerful, with aromas of ripe apple, butter and toast. The wine is certainly dense, yet there is no lack of balancing acidity and the wine remains vibrant and fresh, even in a hot year like 2020. This is from a magnificent holding of 1.71ha on the southern (Puligny) end, next to the Combettes of Sauzet. The grapes are lightly crushed and gently pressed prior to fermentation in cask (one-quarter new)."
