95 points The Tasting Panel: "This crisp and racy Blanc de Blancs shows remarkable depth of flavor. Masterful, elegant, and refined, with a long rich finish. (Nov/Dec 2020)"

94 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(2013 base vintage; disgorged November 2017; 100% chardonnay; predominantly Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly and Avize for longevity and salty minerality, with Vertus and Trépail for white peach and nectarine fruit, and Sézanne, Montgueux and sometimes Vitry for an exotic touch; 70% premier and grand crus; 40% reserves including Cuve 38; aged 3–4.5 years on lees; 7g/L dosage; DIAM). Two additional years on lees since I saw it last has amplified the toasty complexity and bitter almond notes of the 2012 base, while upholding hints of reductive complexity, all the while transforming the fresh lemon and white peach of youth into preserved lemon and dried peach. Line, length and fine chalk mineral texture remain transfixed and delightful. The 2013 base is even more thrilling, leading out with grilled toast and gun-smoke reduction, providing an elegantly complex air to a cuvée of great precision and character. It’s at once precise in its lemon and sugared mandarin freshness, generous in white peach succulence and complex in the almond nougat and creamy texture of age. A blanc de blancs of completeness and class. (2020-2021)"

92 points Michael Edwards (The World of Fine Wine): "An emblem of Henriot's mastery of Chardonnay, from rigorously chosen, exceptional vineyards in a balance of complexity and length, withal soft, rounded, and digestible. Excellent value, too. (Issue 61; 2018)"
