James Suckling scored this 93 points saying "The brioche and cooked-apple and cream character really comes through here. Full-bodied and round with fine bubbles. Flavorful and intense. Vivid, bread-dough finish. This is four years on lees. 55% chardonnay and the rest pinot."
Wine Spectator scored this 90 points saying "Lightly toasty and vibrant, this balanced Champagne carries flavors of melon, black currant, lemon preserves and smoky mineral on a fine, lively mousse."
Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 90 points saying "Fresh and crisp, this is bright with acidity as well as warmer fruitiness. It brings out the dry Laurent-Perrier style, balanced by soft creamed apples and fragrant acidity. Light and fruity at the end, it is ready to drink."
Wine & Spirits Magazine called this a Best Buy scoring it 90 points and saying "This wine's fresh fruit and firm structure match bright lemon zest flavors with limestone severity. The fine bubbles add to the clean sensation of the finish. It's spicy, tight and formidable, a wine to kick-start a dinner party."
