Reviews and Ratings

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

Stunning! This 10 year-old Vintage will leave you speechless. Sensual aromas of toasty, buttery brioche and stone fruit. Gorgeous, lively bubbles on the palate with a long, toasty, stone fruit finish. A rare and special treat. Tasted Oct 02, 2016.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 99/100 with the following review:

I only left out 1 percentage point on this wine - but could very well have given it 100. Words to describe it are endless; brioche, mineral, vibrancy, toasty lees, citrus, creamy, honey, impeccable - but most of all Spectacular! If you are only going to buy one champagne for a special occasion this would fit the bill. Long delicious finish that will leave you wanting more! Tasted Oct. 2/2016
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 99/100 with the following review:

An incredible taste experience. Brioche, honey and citrus notes and flavors with a wonderfully dry minerality on the palate. Consistent bubbles and a lemon tinged finish. If you only open one champagne this is the one for you.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 98/100 with the following review:

Five stars :)
Beautiful, fine, integrated, heavenly and more-ish...

"Boire Dom Pérignon et mourir"

Lively fine bubbles. Gorgeous aroma of brioche. Crisp, dry, minerality with lemon and butter finish. . . Drink at will !
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

Glorious! Rich, deep, complex with layers upon layers of texture. Flavours seamlessly contour on top of each other. Dominant notes include orange peel, apple, pear, honeydew melon, a touch of white pepper and minerality. Pair it with itself! Enjoyed every sip of this in Oct 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketasting.ca
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Pale yellow with beautiful aromas of lemon, buttered biscuit, apricot, caramel, minerality, and a hint of almond. Lots of fine bubbles, vibrant acidity, and flavours of nutty apricot, lemon, and biscuit. Pricey, but incredible. This really pairs well with just about everything.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Taste: Dry, medium body, high acidity, low tannins, refreshing notes of lemons zest, minerals, slate, butter, sharp/tiny bubbles
