92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "($69 list; '02 and '03 fruit; disgorged July, 2008). This is both slightly more elegant and a bit more complex as well with more developed aromas that are similar but there are more brioche and spice characters that can also be found on the very effervescent flavors, indeed this is downright foamy yet the effervescence is very fine and not at all aggressive, which allows the finish to display a sappy and mouth coating quality. This is both intense and quite long as the finish almost sneaks up on the taster. Terrific. Drink: now+."

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."
