Press reviews


Wine Spectator - december 2011: 93 pts
This tightly knit Champagne brings something more with each sip, and a hint of peach leads first to ripe apple and quince flavors, then papaya, nut, lemon meringue, ginger, licorice, and grated coconut notes. This is very focused, with racy acidity and fine texture throughout.

Richard Juhlin - 8,000 Champagnes: (87)91 pts & (86)92 pts

Sommeliers International - Winter 2013 :
Subtle throughout. A very fine example of the wines from the Côte des Blancs. One of our editors’ choices !

Wines & Spirits - december 2011: 94 pts
It's a delicate, pure chardonnay that becomes dramatic in its intensity and breadth. The precision of the flavors will serve this well as it ages.

Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar: 93+ pts
Knockout nose combines spiced apple, minerals, licorice and chalk. Urgent and penetrating on the palate, with crystalline citrus and mineral flavors further intensified by razor-sharp lemony acidity. A very young blanc de blancs with exceptionnal inner-mouth energy. Powerfully lemony, very long finish shows superb perfume and cut.

2012 Gault Millau Wine Guide: 18½ /20
An admirable champagne, deploying expressive citrus aromas with white fruit and hints of aniseed, hedgerow flowers and spice. The mouth is elegant, and magnificently structured . The finish is cool, long and powerful.

2016 La Revue du Vin de France Guide: 15½ /20
Toasty chardonnay flavours combined with delicious yellow fruits. Magnificent generosity and balance.

Jacques Dupont - Le Point - december 2011: 17 /20
Citrus, praline, creamy, very pure, hints of exotic fruits, grapefruit, fresh, long, elegant, perfect balance.

The Champagne lover's guide - Michel Mastrojanni:
Very fresh nose with hints of may blossom, apple and white peach. The mouth is gentle and appetising, filled with freshness and fruit fading gracefully at the finish. A brisk champagne, as springlike as a flower filled orchard.
