93 points Wine Spectator: "[$115 list] Vibrant and harmonious, with a pleasing range of ripe pear and nectarine, toast point and salted almond, candied lemon peel and spun honey riding the finely detailed bead. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2030. 500 cases imported. (11/30/22)"

93 points Audrey Frick (JebDunnuck.com): "The 2015 Champagne Millésime Brut is equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The nose is fragrant with ripe peach and rose petal, and it has a rich texture, with a more viscous feel, and note of yellow flowers and Anjou pear. It speaks to the ripeness of the vintage, but it is long on the palate and has a light phenolic finish. I think this is ready to drink now. Drink: After 2022. (11/7/22)"

93 points James Suckling: "This is a vivid Taittinger with notes of chalk, almond croissants, lemon curd and biscuits. Bright and linear, with a tight bead of bubbles. Focused with persistent pastry notes. 50% pinot noir and 50% chardonnay; 70% Grands Crus and 30% Premiers Crus. Drink or hold. (10/5/22)"

91 points Essi Avellan, MW: "(50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir). Taittinger Millésime is traditionally a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with high-rated (70% grand cru) origins in the Côte des Blancs, Vallée de la Marne and Montagne de Reims. The fruity exuberance of red apple, lemon confit and poached pear meet a lovely toasty whiff on the overt nose. There is also a mild earthy vegetalness to it, which stays safely in the background. The palate is plush and full of fruit, but towards the finish the vegetal characters bring a note of austerity to the whole. A fruit-forward, generous vintage for mid-term drinking. Dosage 9g/l. (Aug 2022)"
