3 stars (top rating), Peter Liem (ChampagneGuide.net): "This is a saignée of pinot noir, blended with about eight percent of chardonnay. It’s one of the finest champagnes I’ve tasted from this difficult vintage, feeling vividly fragrant and intensely soil-expressive. While the fruit flavors of raspberry and strawberry are ripe and concentrated, this is really all about minerality, encompassing the palate in its savory, stony aromas. It’s long, elegant and lithe, demonstrating a remarkable sense of finesse, and it finishes with a breathtaking sense of both complexity and precision. Last tasted: 4/13."
