93 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Aromas of confit citrus, pear, fresh pastry and English walnuts preface Vilmart's 2011 Brut Premier Cru Coeur de Cuvée, a full-bodied, muscular and incisive wine with a deep core, racy acids and a delicately nutty finish. Disgorged a few months ago, it is a terrific effort that transcends the vintage, even if it won't go down as one of the great renditions of Coeur de Cuvée. Champs told me that he picked five or six days after his neighbors, and that appears to be borne out by the wines body and structure. Drink: 2020-2033. (Aug 2019)"

93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2011 Brut Coeur de Cuvée has put on a bit of weight since I tasted it last, and that is not a bad thing at all for a year in which the wines are a bit light. Tangerine oil, marzipan, pastry, lemon confit and a touch of sweet oak give the 2011 tons of complexity. Beautifully perfumed and nuanced, the 2011 is once again positively stellar. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged: March, 2018. Drink: 2019-2026. (Dec 2019)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$162 list] Crisp acidity drives this firm, mouthwatering version, rounded out by a soft and creamy mousse and rich hints of grilled nut and biscotti that accent flavors of white raspberry, pink grapefruit sorbet and warm spice. Offers a clean, minerally finish. Disgorged April 2018. Drink now through 2026. (2019)"
