100 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Since awarding the July 2019 disgorgement of Selosse's emblematic NV Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Substance a three-digit score, readers won't be surprised to learn that I've drunk a dozen bottles—all in the interest of due diligence, of course. Happily, the wine continues to show extraordinarily well, bursting from the glass with aromas of honeyed pears, buttered toast, candied peel, fenugreek and almond paste. Full-bodied, textural and enveloping, it's vinous, concentrated and sapid, marrying to remarkable effect the unique patina imparted by Selosse's distinctive winemaking practices with the powerful yet incisive profile that defines Avize. This is a brilliant Champagne, and my only regret is that I doubt I'll have any bottles left five years from now. Drink: 2020-2030. (Mar 2021)"

96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The NV (2010) Extra-Brut Substance is fabulous. Anselme and Guillaume Selosse craft a Champagne that is at once opulent and vibrant in Substance, which is made from a solera-style blend that goes back to 1986. That blend of vintages over time yields a Champagne with unreal textural and flavor complexity. There's just no other wine in Champagne like it. A hint of reduction adds character to the rich, honeyed Chardonnay fruit in a Substance that hits all the right notes. Disgorged: January 30, 2020. Drink: 2020-2030. (Nov 2020)"

>b>96 points Richard Juhlin (Decanter): "So much Selosse! Intense and personal. Our bottle was very mature with a fat, oily character. Loads of different nuts, sesame oil, Istanbul market spices and dried sweet fruits. Huge!"
