90/100 Punkte Robert Parker Dec 2009 The NV Brut Excellence is a terrific effort at this level. A fragrant, open bouquet leads to deep, layered core of fruit. The wine shows gorgeous complexity, nuance and a multi-dimensional personality that is simply compelling. The Brut Excellence is 45% Pinot Noir, 13% Pinot Meunier and 42% Chardonnay. The significant presence of red grapes gives the wine much of its breadth and richness on the palate. This is Lot L745-1422, disgorged 1st week of December, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.
17/20 Punkte Vinum Dezember 2016 Verführerische, sehr reintönige, rauchig-fruchtige Aromatik; saftig und knackig im Mund, wenig und fest und lang, die Art von Champagner, die man bei jeder Gelegenehit öffnen wird.
94/100 Punkte Parker Dec 2008 The NV Extra Brut Cuvee Blanc de Blancs Celebris is 100% Chardonnay composed of vintages 1995, 1996, 1998 and 1999. This powerful, sinewy wine possesses a striking combination of soaring aromatics and deep, rich fruit all buttressed by notable structure. The ripe tropical fruit is intermingled with sweet notes of oak, flowers and minerals in a gorgeous expression of Chardonnay. Although the wine already shows some pretty signs of early tertiary complexity, there is more than enough vibrancy and freshness to ensure at least a decade of very fine drinking. The cork is labeled C 7386, and this bottle was disgorged early December, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
