5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, December 2015 (2010 Vintage)
"Moderately deep, light golden-yellow colour, lighter on edge. This has a very fine bead with gentle persistence of the bubbles. The bouquet is softly concentrated and voluminous in presence, gently unfolding aromas of Pinot Noir yellow stonefruits along with bready yeast, nuances of autolytic brioche and toast and complexing nutty elements. The nose is very harmonious in expression and builds in depth and breadth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features yellow stonefruits at the core, melded with layers of bready autolysis and subtle nutty aldehyde complexities. The mousse is soft and enhances the soft textures, gentle acidity and rounded mouthfeel. As the wine flows, the yeasty and nutty detail integrate with the stonefruit notes and carry to a soft, refined, complex, savoury finish. This is a harmoniously layered Methode Traditionnelle that subtly reveals its complexity. Serve as an aperitif and with white meat dishes over the next 3+ years. A blend of 54% Chardonnay and 46% Pinot Noir fermented to 13.0% alc., with 8 g/L dosage, the wine on primary lees for 11 months and a further 4+ years on lees in the bottle. Tiraged in March 2011 and disgorged in August 2015. Lot 167."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage)
"This is the district's finest sparkling (although very few are produced). The 2010 vintage is a blend of Chardonnay (54 per cent) and Pinot Noir (46 per cent). Pale gold, with a fragrant, toasty bouquet, it has strong, peachy, yeasty flavours, showing good complexity, and a creamy, dryish, lingering finish."
