Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94-95 points

From 65-year-old vines in the highest portion of this appellation (bordering Rousseau's Chambertin), Perrot-Minot's 2005 Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes offers pure, liqueur-like blackberry, black truffle and lily-like floral aromas, comes onto the palate with sumptuous depth and richness of fruit backed by beef marrow, creamy texture yet persistently fresh fruit, pungent brown spices, and amazing finishing intensity. This has what certain Australian wine makers would call “fruit weight,” yet without an impression of actual weight on the palate. While there is less refinement than in the Chapelle, there is formidable raw richness and intensity in this wine probably best left untouched for at least a decade.
