“ A fine straw-gold colour with great finesse of bubble flow and mousse. Joyful aromas of apple blossom and ripe pear. A full, defined palate demonstrates richness that will help to give this a long life in the cellar. (2/17)”

93pts James Suckling

“I drink this regularly and always enjoy it. Wonderful aromas of light dough, fresh flowers, and sliced pears and peaches. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh, it shows layers of marvelous light tropical fruit and cream with hints of dough on the finish.

Mostly 2011 with some reserve wines. From 47% pinot meunier, 30% chardonnay and the rest pinot noir. Bottled April 2012. (09/14)”

91pts Wine Spectator

“This bright Champagne is sleek and mouthwatering, with tightly knit flavors of glazed apricot, biscuit, nectarine and verbena. Clean-cut and lacy on the finish. Drink now through 2018. (11/16)”

91pts Wine Spectator– N/V vintage

A well-knit Champagne with a citrusy, orange peel overtone and a lithe backbone of acidity enlivening flavors of cherry and apricot fruit, grated ginger, pastry and minerally saline.  Creamy finish.  Drink now through 2023.

90pts Wine Spectator– NV vintage
