98 points and '2020 Top 100 Wines,' James Halliday (Wine Companion): "This is a sublime Blanc de Blancs, marrying power and finesse, complexity and delicacy, white fruits and a hint of toast. It is 100% Grand Cru, and 100% Cotes de Blancs. Pol Roger has spent well over $20 million upgrading its winery in the last 20 years, money well spent. (Nov 2019)"

96 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(disgorged 26 March 2018; 100% Côte des Blancs grand crus: Avize, Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Oger; 7g/L dosage). For a house once led by pinot noir, Pol Roger is increasingly focusing on chardonnay in its vintage wines, and recent vintages of its Blanc de Blancs demonstrate why. The 2012 proudly joins its greatest hits, alongside 2002 and 2008. This cuvée has been on allocation for some years, and the house has made the call to release 2012 after just five years on lees (2008 had a little under six years, 2006 had eight and 2002 had nine). Testimony to the molecular precision of Pol Roger’s exacting regime, the propensity of this cuvée to age is astonishing, and the best vintages keep on escalating every time I come back to them. With a bright, medium straw hue, this is a thrilling blanc de blancs that sings with the finesse of the house in exacting purity and drive to contrast grand cru concentration. It delicately sets beautiful yellow peach and lemon fruit against a dizzying shard of pure acidity. The finish surges onward amid powerful, crashing waves of salt minerality that glide long and strong up an endless beach of glistening white purity. (2020-2021)"
