4 stars "Golden color. Subtle nose, aromas of toasted bread. Nice concentration on the palate with lively bubbles. A Champagne that has some personality."

"This wine is composed of 51% Chardonnay and 49% Pinot Noir from a tiny 1.25 acre walled vineyard that faces south towards the Marne. It is the most serious of the three single vineyard offerings with a tightly wound core of limey Chardonnay. It is very sought after and rare Champagne, the valley of the Marnes 'Clos' to pour along side the Cote de Blancs Clos de Mesnil and the Mountain of Reims Clos du Goisses. The wall acts as an insulator, and the extra ripeness comes through in the body of the wine. This is big impressive stuff- don't let the price fool you.- Gary Westby, K&L"
