DESCRIPTION

Vinous Media (Antonio Galloni) 93

“The 2013 Grand Cellier d’Or soars out of the glass with majestic intensity. Rich, concentrated and somehow also light on its feet, the 2013 is sublime. I could describe the aromas, flavors and textures, but, really, more than anything else, the 2013 is flat-out delicious. The level of detail and precision here is simply tremendous. Disgorged: July, 2017.” (November, 2018)

 

Wine Advocate (Stephen Reinhardt) 92

“The 2013 Premier Cru Grand Cellier d'Or is an assemblage of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir (mass selections from a single vineyard named Les Blanches Voies), both vinified in four- to six-year-old 228-liter barrels for ten months (no malolactic fermentation). It offers a deep, intense, fresh and elegant nose of white fruits with just a spicy kiss of oak. Full-bodied and pure on the palate, this is a still sharp, citrus-flavored cuvée with great elegance, complexity and freshness. The finish is very elegant and fine but firmly structured, displaying concentrated lemon and grapefruit flavors. Disgorged in December 2016 with a dosage of seven grams per liter, the 2013 was still terribly young when tasted 16 months later, in April 2018. "2013 was a pretty cool year, but the end of summer and beginning of the harvest (which started on the 21st of September) was very good. The grapes had nice maturity and balance between sugar and acidity," says Laurent Champs. His Grand Cellier d'Or will surely improve over the years, and there are many years ahead of the 2013.” (August, 2018)

 

Wine Spectator (Alison Napjus) 92

“With an intense spine of rapierlike acidity, this sleek Champagne is fleshed out by rich, up-front spice, lime blossom and minerally oyster shell accents and dried white cherry and candied kumquat flavors set on the creamy mousse. Disgorged June 2017. Drink now through 2028.” (December, 2018)
