Vinous 89 points - (50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier; 12 g/l dosage; L63PA113459): Light gold. Aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, with suggestions of green tea and honey in the background. Supple and open-knit, with pliant pear and orange flavors picking up a touch of bitter herbacity with air. Closes on a spicy note, with good energy and a lingering note of white pepper.
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Fresh and crisp, this is bright with acidity as well as warmer fruitiness. It brings out the dry Laurent-Perrier style, balanced by soft creamed apples and fragrant acidity. Light and fruity at the end, it is ready to drink.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Elegant and finely knit, this vibrant Champagne is framed by racy acidity that enlivens the flavors of ripe boysenberry, lemon zest, brioche and chopped hazelnut. Spice and chalk notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 20,802 cases imported.

Lovely. Candied citrus, ginger and mineral aromas and flavors integrate well with the lightweight, elegant frame. Beautifully displayed, from start to the long finish.
