93pts James Suckling
A reserve-wine blend that delivers a complex and savory style with a wealth of pastry, brioche and smoothly arranged citrus fruit. Fresh and dry. This is still fruit-focused but super crisp. Blend of 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Drink now.
92pts Wine Enthusiast
A new approach for this producer, this Champagne is almost dry and has also had six years’ aging before release. The result is a taut, nervy and well-structured wine that is wonderfully crisp. Great acidity and citrus flavors add to the effect. Drink now.
92pts Wine & Spirits
Dominique Demarville created this blend from Clicquot’s collection of reserve wines; this first release blends wines from 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The older wines give it shadings of toasted wheat and oxidative yeasty autolysis while the freshness of the younger vintages brings briskness to its almond and hazelnut flavors. It’s chalky, naked and clean.
91pts Wine Spectator
A mouthwatering version, with a delicate bead and a minerally streak of chalk and saline accents underscoring the poached pear, chopped hazelnut and black currant notes. Disgorged June 2017. Drink now through 2022.
