94 points Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France 2022 (La Revue du Vin de France). 94 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(Aged at least 24 months on lees; 5g/L dosage). A seamless assemblage of fruit and barrel complexity marries the expressive, grapey, youthful generosity of guava, star fruits, poached strawberries, red apples and succulent stone fruits with the depth and intrigue of clove spice. Pure and lively, with soft, grapefruit-like acidity and an undercurrent of chalky minerality."

Importer notes: "(formerly called Brut Prestige). 10% Pinot Noir from Bouzy ('Les Vaux Bétins' and 'Les Hannepés' plots with deep soils) and Tauxières, in an area called 'Les Argentières', with more chalk -- vines planted in 1960, 1980 and 1990. Planting density: 8400 plants/hectare. Root-stock: 41B. Pruning type: Cordon de Royat. The grapes from each parcel are pressed separately. No filtration. Dosage : 5 gr/liter (Extra-Brut). Dark-toned fruit is underlined by a stony minerality. Energetic and persistant through the finish. 666 cases produced."
