91 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "(all Chardonnay, from Oger; 6 g/l dosage; disgorged in August, 2012): Green-tinged yellow. The nose displays an array of pit and orchard fruit scents and a hint of melon. Taut and focused on the palate, offering juicy honeydew, pear and nectarine flavors and a bracing jolt of bitter citrus pith. Gains weight with air and finishes smooth and broad, with very good persistence and a hint of chalky minerals. (Jan 2015)"
91 points Wine Spectator: "A sleek blanc de blancs that nonetheless shows a rich hint of toasted brioche underscoring flavors of poached pear, white cherry and fresh ginger. Refined and well-knit in texture. Disgorged August 28, 2012. Drink now through 2019. (11/30/14)"
(*) Peter Liem (ChampagneGuide.net): "A blend of 2008 and 2007, this feels generous and broad, although its creamy texture is contrasted by the racy acidity typical of the 2008 vintage. It has a biscuity, vanilla-like undertone reminiscent of wood-aging, even though this was made entirely in tank, and it's forward and accessible, drinking well now."
