Critical Acclaim WS 92 Wine Spectator - An expressive skein of ground spice is the aromatic highlight of this finely balanced blanc de blancs, offering a refined and creamy bead, layered with flavors of poached pear, candied lemon zest, honey and pastry. V 92 Vinous / Antonio Galloni - The Brut Blanc de Blancs Signature melds together beautifully in the glass. This is a soft, caressing style of Chardonnay from Mesnil. Rich and inviting, the Brut Blancs de Blancs impresses for its balance. Pretty, chalky notes linger on the polished, impeccable finish. Disgorged: June 11, 2012.
