94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Exclusively made from Pinot Noir cultivated in Ambonnay, Aÿ, Verzy, Chigny-les-Roses and Tauxières, the intensely white-golden colored NV Grand Blanc de Noirs Extra-Brut is deep, intense and rich on the toasty and vinous nose. Full-bodied, round and pure, this is a generous, highly elegant, precise, finessed, fresh and stimulatingly salty cuvée with structure, grip and persistent vinous character. It has very nice reduction and piercing minerality.

A harmonious Champagne, with a satiny mousse, this shows good length and focus to the rich notes of baked plum and apricot fruit, biscuit, smoke and lemon curd. A firm frame of well-cut acidity lends balance. Drink now through 2022.
With its elegant gold-flecked appearance and its extremely fine mousse, the Grand Blanc de Noirs charms from the outset. With 9 years aging on the lees, this 100% Pinot Noir exhibits a nose of white fruit, hints of patisserie, along with a touch of white peach and baked apple. As it unfurls on the palate, it beautifully displays notes of beeswax and candied citron. The attack is supple and well-balanced. The finish is crisp and fresh with salty, almost iodine notes, along with a certain minerality and structure. Perfectly balanced between intense aromas and elegant finesse, the fruity structure of the Pinot Noir is expressed with surprising freshness and precision.
