**(*) Peter Liem (ChampagneGuide.net): "While this is fresh in color, its aromas on the nose veer towards more developed notes of graham cracker, Brazil nut and toasted brioche, although they’re kept lively and taut by an elegant reduction. It’s a little surprising after that to see how full and ripe the wine appears on the palate, showing the warmth of the vintage while remaining anchored by both tense acidity and saline chalkiness, and the flavors unfold with an elegant harmony and poise throughout the long finish. This is excellent, needing plenty of time in the glass to put itself together yet showing a compelling sophistication and refinement, and it feels as if it still has plenty of room to develop further in the cellar. (2/3/20)"
94 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and creamy in texture, offering black currant pâte de fruit, creamed almond, pastry cream and lemon confit flavors, with a clean-cut, chalky finish. Impressive, with good tension to the vivid acidity, this resembles a jittery horse at the gate today, and doesn't quite find a sense of rhythm. Tasted from magnum. Best from 2016 through 2029. 100 cases imported. (12/15/14)"
