Press Reviews:

`Honey and almond nose. Bready, honey and almond on the palate. Smooth and saline. Good mousse. Very elegant. Deliciously long. This is a wine which the Champagne house has been producing for more than 17 years and is the symbol of their production. Made from their older wines (2010 harvest), their smoothest reserve wines (22% of the blend) and aged for 4 years (15% in barrels on lees) – by the rules of Champagne an NV does not require more than 15 months of aging. Their notion is to make a wine which is not austere, and has sufficient complexity and richness without any kind of dosage.` 91 points,

`Pinot meunier-dominant blend with pinot noir and chardonnay, this has an array of ripe light red berries with more savory woody notes, too. The palate delivers a range of ripe stone fruits and cherry flavors. A gently toasty, grilled nut finish. Drink now.` James Suckling, 4th October 2017

`A low-dosage cuvée based on the harrowing 2011 season is not a recipe that instils confidence, yet the Lenoble team have done a laudable job of creating a wine of poise and appeal. Depth of apple and pear fruit is layered with the toasty, roast hazelnut character of bottle age and a touch of barrel vinification. The dry dustiness of the season is present, though there is sufficient fine chalk mineral texture, ripe fruit presence and even malic acid flow to create a finish of appeal and harmony without any need for dosage. A monumental feat!` 92 points, Tyson Stelzer, 2018-2019 edition of The Champagne Guide
