96 points Bettane & Desseauve Guide (2024).

94 points Yohan Castaing (Wine Advocate): "The Bruno Paillard NV Cuvée 72, aged 36 months on lees with an additional 36 months post-disgorgement, was disgorged in November 2018 with six grams per liter. It’s an excellent Champagne, offering aromas of pastry, lemon, blood orange, spices, saffron and touches of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, rich and slightly creamy, it’s vinous and lively with a salty and iodized finish. It can be drunk any time over the coming five years. Drink: 2023-2030. (Apr 2023)"

93 points James Suckling: "Fine autolysis with yeasty crackers, fine notes of sourdough and lemon custard that extends onto the medium- to full-bodied palate. A hint of honey. An excellent load of generous flavors carried by fine, exquisite perlage which melts into the palate. Long and almost mature, which means it is perfect to enjoy now and for the next three years. Disgorged in November 2017. (5/9/23)"

93 points Tom Hewson (TimAtkin.com): "45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Meunier. 2014 base, disgorged in May 2018 (36 months on lees, 36 months post-disgorgement). A gregarious, concentrated style with an integrated oxidative character of savoury nuttiness propped up with honey, cooked orchard fruits and maple syrup aromas. The mousse is delicate, though, the impression of development tempered by low dosage and fine acidity. A smart balancing act indeed, and a clear example of the warming, settling effect of post-disgorgement ageing. (2022)"

92 points La Revue du Vin de France: "The Cuvée 72 (as in the number of months of ageing on lees) serenely asserts its flavorful structure, a fine bottle for gastronomy. (2023)"
