98 points Decanter: "(55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay). Superb! This has a nose of oatmeal, plum , quince and a hit of lanolin; impressive palate weight, good autolytic definition; richly resonant and long. A delight. Alcohol 12.0%. (DWWA 2021)"

94-95 points Essi Avellan, MW: "55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay. This Piper vintage is a blend of 19 villages, with Pinot Noir coming from the Montagne de Reims, and Chardonnay from both the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. Charmingly fruity and inviting nose, with soft vanilla-coated notes of red apple, peach, mirabelle plum and lemon curd, all enveloped in a complex toasty whole. Similarly joyful fireworks of fruit continue on the rich, rounded palate, which is beautifully silky and juicy, with a fine acid line leading to a long, sweetly fruity finish. A seductive vintage ready to impress. Dosage 7g/l. (Aug 2022)"

94 points/'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$97 list] A perfectly mature Champagne, this is just ready to drink. Fresh fruits contrast with the mature toastiness. The blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay gives texture plus minerality in harmony. Drink this fine wine now. Alcohol 12%. (Dec 2022)"

94 points Bettane & Desseauve Guide (2023).

93 points Wine Spectator: "A seamless Champagne, finely textured and showing a creamy viscosity on the palate. This vibrant version winds a subtle, toasty thread of brioche and roasted almond through flavors of black currant, dried apricot and candied lemon peel. Mouthwatering and lightly chalky on the finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2029. (12/15/21)"

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Champagne Millésime Brut is 65% Pinot Noir and the rest Chardonnay and is fresh with aromas of yellow plum, pear, honey, and light toast. The palate is fresh and approachable, with starberry and bread dough. Drink 2022-2032. (11/7/22)"

92 points James Suckling: "A bright, silky and vinous Champagne with aromas of dried apricots, walnuts, seashells, preserved lemons, raspberry tart and frangipani. Very fine bubbles here, with succulent citrus and berry fruit. Why wait? Drink now. (8/8/22)"

91+ points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Much as I wrote last year, the 2014 Brut Vintage opens in the glass with notes of crisp orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, lemon oil and light reduction. Medium to full-bodied, deep and tightly wound, with racy acids and chalky grip, it continues to display a pinpoint mousse and concludes with a long, dry finish. As it unwinds with time in the cellar, it's revealing more potential. Drink: 2022-2034. (Aug 2022)"
