Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 91 points: Pale, green-tinged yellow. Chalky, mineral-accented aromas of lime, quince and green apple. Dry and incisive on the palate, offering nervy citrus fruit and floral flavors along with a biting note of white pepper. Shows excellent clarity and power on a finish that strongly echoes the chalk and lime notes. Here's a racy, fat-free Champagne that would make an ideal companion for oysters.
Wine Spectator 91 points: Rich and toasty in a restrained, taut package, offering yeasty bread dough and brioche accents to the notes of apple gelée, crystallized honey and citrus zest. This shows fine texture and bright acidity, with a hint of graphite on the finish. Drink now through 2018.
Allen Meadows' Burghound 91 points: This is arguably the most elegant wine in the range with a wonderfully high-toned nose of rose petal, brioche and freshly peeled lemon rind that is in keeping with the foamy but fine flavors that offer even more complexity before culminating in a gorgeously balanced and harmonious finish. This is a really pretty blanc de blancs and given that this genre often develops its complexity only with extended bottle age, this is one to buy in quantity so that it can be drunk over the next 5 years, or longer if desired.
