Wine Advocate: 90 Points:
. The NV Brut Grand Cru Tradition is a pretty, immediate Champagne with lovely roundness. Nothing in particular stands out, just the wine’s balance and overall sense of proportion. A soft, caressing finish rounds things out in style. This release is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from the 2008 vintage, with the addition of reserve wines. Disgorged January 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
Wine Spectator: 92 Points:
The firm acidity is finely meshed in this seamless Champagne, with a rich note of chalky minerality underscoring the creamy palate's flavors of chopped almond, black currant, fleur de sel and candied lemon zest. Disgorged October 2014. Drink now through 2020.
