98 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Falstaff): "Florality, fresh white field mushroom, freshly cut green apple and a touch of Mirabelle. The palate has an enticing saltiness, a generous depth of red apple flesh, that gorgeous dusting of rye bread pepperiness, an an immense depth and concentration. The youthfulness is astonishing and the autolysis shows itself with the utmost umami subtlety and length. This is absolutely contained generosity, toned and tense and oh so sleek - in 2003. Remarkable. (8/8/21)"
98 points/'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "This great single-vineyard Champagne is from an atypical Champagne vintage. The heat waves that punctuated the 2003 summer produced wines that are often full. In this case, though, plenty of the magic of Pinot Noir in a privileged site remains, with a taut, structured wine, full of ripe fruits but with intense acidity. Drink this beautiful wine now and well into the future. Alcohol 12.5%. (Dec 2020)"
