"Nicely balanced and certainly ripe enough. Not that fizzy but engaging and really interesting. Long." - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20 (Jun 2018)

"Bright light golden colour with a vivid young mousseux. The nose is rather complex and vinous showing white flower, lees contact, brioche, butter, peach, ripe citrus and almond paste, more Chardonnay-driven it feels. The palate is ample yet fresh, rather extra brut with a mouth-watering sensation, muscular and persistent with fine creaminess, layers of stone fruit a mild creaminess and a long, intense finish. Nice substance and vinosity." Andreas Larsson Best Sommelier of The World 92/100
