Wine Spectator 92 points - (55% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier; L130419 3867): Light gold, with a hint of onion skin. Toasty, lees-accented orange and white peach on the deeply scented nose. Fleshy and open-knit, displaying good cut to its ripe orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Shows a touch of gingery spiciness on the finish, which clings with good tenacity and building smokiness.
Elegant, with rich base notes of toasted brioche and smoke adding depth, this integrates finely honed acidity, detailed texture and flavors of black cherry puree, apple tarte Tatin, kumquat and grated ginger. Provides a creamy, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 50,000 cases made. –AN Rated #84 in Wine Spectator’s 2012 Top 100
Toasty aromas leap from the glass in this deliciously mature wine. It is soft but still very dry, with acidity tamed by both fine, mature fruit and a creamy texture that sits well in the mouth. This is a very fine, tasty wine. Score: 92. —Roger Voss, December 01, 2005.
The 2000 Brut is round and generous in its candied apricots, honey and roasted nuts. The wine offers good length but not as much complexity or personality as I had hoped. The 2000 Brut is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. This bottle was disgorged in 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012.
