97 points, Decanter: "48% Chardonnay, 52% Pinot Noir. Charming nose of soft coconut, mango, nectarine and Mirabelle plum. Supremely elegant, yet with grip; voices from the orange grove; an engaging call to arms. Everything is in most excellent order. (DWWA 2021)"

93+ points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Unfurling in the glass with incipiently complex aromas of citrus oil, wheat toast, fresh peach and crisp orchard fruit, the newly released 2012 Vintage Brut is full-bodied, deep and tightly wound, with excellent concentration, racy acids and a fine mousse, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. Even though it's still a little reserved after its recent disgorgement, Drink: 2020-2035. (Aug 2019)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$80 list] A crowd-pleasing example, showing overall balance and integration, with lightly mouthwatering acidity and a creamy texture married to an appealing mix of white cherry, almond biscotti, lemon curd and anise flavors. A lovely streak of spicy minerality drives the long finish. Drink now through 2027. (12/15/19)"

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay, with 10 grams of dosage, the 2012 Champagne offers a beautifully layered, rich style with loads of brioche and orchard fruits, medium-bodied richness and depth, good acidity, and a clean finish. It's a layered, pure, classic Champagne that’s well worth seeking out. It’s a solid step up over the Cuvée Brut. Drink: 2019-2024. (11/5/19)"

93 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "A vintage wine, this hints of maturity while preserving a fresh core of balanced fruit and texture. Almost equally balanced between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the wine brings together structure and minerality to sustain the fruit. Drink this Champagne from 2021. Alcohol 12%. (Dec 2019)"
