Offering up aromas of honeyed orchard fruit, dried white flowers, fresh peach and drawn butter, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly muscular and concentrated, with a textural attack, lively acids and a nicely defined finish. - William Kelley collapse

The cépages this year is sixty-five percent pinot noir, thirty percent chardonnay and five percent pinot meunier and was made entirely from the first press juice (cuvée). Between twenty and thirty percent of the blend are composed of reserve wines from the maison’s solera. The nose here is deep and beautifully complex, delivering a fine constellation of apple, white peach, chalky soil tones, a nice touch of patissière, gentle smokiness and a very discreet floral topnote. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and zesty, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip, refined mousse and lovely length and grip on the still fairly youthful finish. The nose right now is open and superb, but the wine is still a tad closed on the palate and it would not be remiss to tuck this wine away in the cellar for three or four years and really let it blossom properly. This is clearly now one of the best Brut NVs produced by one of the Grandes Marques. (Drink between 2021-2050) collapse

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, September 2019
A very attractive and quite flavorful style with vibrant citrus and peachy stone fruit, leading to a palate that carries gently toasted cashews and quite a vibrant, fleshy mid-palate. Drink now.
