94 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(2013 base vintage; disgorged September 2017; 30% chardonnay, 65% pinot noir, 5% meunier; two-thirds premier and grand cru; 30% reserves from a solera aged in oak barrels; partial malolactic fermentation; aged 3 years on lees; zero dosage). The absence of dosage is stark here, and this is a captivating demonstration of the significance of a touch of sweetness. Philipponnat’s ripe-fruit generosity and clean precision stands confidently with no added sugar, though it’s markedly more tense and austere, its red fruits diminished and its malic acidity heightened. With magnificent purity and tension, it upholds an acid line that will captivate champagne die-hards and challenge the uninitiated. (2020-2021)"
93 points Wine & Spirits: "[$67 list] This wine manages to feel plump while remaining chalk-dry. The flavors are long on savory notes of white cornmeal, chamomile and bright, mouthfilling herbal freshness, riding on a texture rich enough to match with wild-mushroom risotto. (Dec 2020)"
92 points James Suckling: "A very fresh and bright, lemon and white-peach nose with gently flinty nuances, leading to a very fresh, pared-back and clear-cut, dry palate. Drink now. (9/2/19)"
