James Suckling 93 points - 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.  (Sep 2014)

Wine & Spirits 91 points - This blend includes 40 percent pinot meunier, the balance equal parts pinot noir and chardonnay. Its remarkable fruitiness might be tied to the firm’s long, slow, cool fermentations, which, they believe, allow meunier to maintain its perfume. This is a graceful, vinous Champagne with dramatic high notes of roses and red fruit, finishing clean with a grounding of pale earthiness. It’s a lovely prediction of what Champagne might become in a warming climate.  (Dec 2013)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Bright and citrusy, this racy Champagne offers a lively bead and flavors of plum tart, spun honey, star anise and dried apricot, underscored by a lingering note of smoky minerality. Drink now through 2018. -AN  (Dec 15 2015)

Wine Advocate 87 points - The NV Brut Reserve is an attractive, easygoing wine with good up-front fruit and an accessible personality. Flowers, dried pears and spices are some of notes that linger on the finish. This is Lot 23813206659A. Disgorged February 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.  (Nov 2011)

Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This is a finely balanced non-vintage Brut. It has great swathes of yellow fruit and crisp lime flavor that lend a stylish freshness. Already showing some touches of toast and bottle age, this is a ready-to-drink wine. (Dec 2013)
