Burghound 92 points: A beautifully complex and moderately yeasty nose of primarily floral and citrus aromas that complements well the delicious and equally complex flavors that are crisp without being aggressive and the effervescence is relatively fine on the vibrant and lingering finish. While I wouldn't go so far as to call this a Champagne of finesse, there is a certain delicacy of expression here but in the end, it's the complexity that distinguishes it.
Stephen Tanzer's IWC 91 points: Pale gold, with a hint of peach skin. Mineral-accented aromas of lemon and orange peel, with a hint of dried flowers. Musky citrus and pear flavors are dry and taut, with a strong mineral quality adding spine. This got 10g/l dosage but comes off much drier, with very good finishing clarity and nervy cut. This is a blend of 80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay, with a portion of the reserve wines (40% of the blend) aged in barriques.
Wine Spectator 91 points: Very firm, yet balanced, with black cherry and candied black currant flavors that show subtle hints of whole-grain toast, cream, honey and Chai tea spices. Open-knit, with fine texture and a mouthwatering finish.
