93pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "Disgorged with four grams per liter dosage, the 2008 Extra Brut Vintage hasn't appreciably evolved since I last tasted it. Offering up pretty aromas of honeycomb, crisp green apple, white flowers and fresh pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, tensile and incisive, with a tightly wound core, racy acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. I wouldn't open bottles from my own cellar for another five years, as this is evolving at a glacial pace." Sep 2020

Winery: "Intense and seductive. This wine, with an extra brut dosage, is dominated by great Pinot Noir flavors which is tempered by the elegance of the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and that signature touch of Pinot Meunier."
