Wine Spectator – Kumquat, melon and anise notes are layered with toast, smoke and golden raisin flavors in this firm, minerally Champagne, complemented by a fine, creamy mousse.
Wine Enthusiast – With some bottle age, this nonvintage wine is beautifully integrated. Crispness accompanies a rounder, riper character, with green plum and lemon flavors cut by sliced apple and acidity. The blend brings together the three Champagne grapes in equal measure and reflects that in its well-balanced aftertaste.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Straw yellow and with a golden hue in color, the Pol Roger NV Réserve Brut displays a brilliant, perfectly ripe but also fresh, highly elegant and refined fruit aroma on the nose; think of cooked pip fruits like pears and apples, but also quince-confiture and yellow stone fruits, such as apricots and peaches intermixed with vanilla, brioche (pain aux raisins), some nutty flavors and also some white floral notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied Brut is as round (if not pretty sweet) and fruit-driven as it is delicate, pure and very elegant. The mousse is deliciously fine and leads this charming and perfectly balanced fizz to a long, aromatic, stunningly dry and slightly mineral, impressively long finish. This is extremely well done Champagne from equal parts of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay sourced in 30 different crus. This Réserve includes 25% of reserve wines and was dosed with nine grams per liter.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The NV Brut Premiere Cuvee is exceptionally polished and refined from the very first taste. Lemon, grapefruit, green pears and flowers are some of the many notes that are woven together in this classy, totally polished wine. The two-plus years of bottle age post-disgorgement are a great example of how first-class NV Champagnes can develop beautifully in bottle, something I have seen time and again with Bruno Paillard’s wines. Hints of hazelnut, almond, crushed rocks and pastry add elements of complexity, yet the wine retains its classic sense of energy and vibrancy.
World Wine – "Produced from the 20 year old Bizot vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley and less than 500 litres of juice per tonne. The wine was fermented and aged in old oak for 10 months on lees before bottling and further lees ageing for 42 months. This is a sparkling of the highest order and the best Australian Blanc de Blanc I have enjoyed , holding its own with the best of Champagne. This should be no surprise given the pedigree of the producer. A light golden yellow in colour with a nose of creamy white peach, faint touches of marzipan and red apple. The palate unravels with layers of complexity, there is a lifted richness to stone fruits with a backdrop of blanched almond and clotted cream. The textural grip is savoury and moreish. There is a lovely freshness to finish with brioche and almond meal before a final embellishment to oyster shell and peach. Drink 2021-2030." - Patrick Eckel (winereviewer.com.au)
World Wine – This is one of the most remarkable champagnes I have ever tasted. Quite a deep pink, it is almost impossibly perfumed - like a really good red burgundy, with forest fruit and spice aromas - and is intense, elegant, entrancing, crisp, juicy and endless in the mouth. Wow! Max Allen, The Weekend Australian Magazine.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Larmandier-Bernier's NV Extra Brut Rosé de Saignee is one of the most profound wines I encountered in my tastings. The color resembles the tonality of blood orange juice. This is a powerful wine that flows onto the palate with an expression of bright red fruit that recalls the wines of Chambolle in its luxuriousness, but is backed up with serious structure. This compelling, totally seductive wine possesses awesome richness and vibrancy, with layers of aromas and flavors that continue to develop in the glass all the way through to the long, intensely satisfying finish. The wine could be served alongside any dish that might be served with grand cru Burgundy, but like all of the world's great wines, this is a bottle that creates its own occasion. Larmandier-Bernier completely redefines what Rosé can be all about with this monumental effort. The estate's Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir from Vertus vinified on the skins (saignee) and bottled with 3 grams of dosage.
Huon Hooke – Full salmon-pink colour. Toasty and bready tirage-aged characters, smoky and truffley too. Complex - a very tasty balance between mellow aged character and fruit. It's rich and full in the mouth with ample body and good concentration. The finish is dry and firmish. A rich, generously-flavoured but elegant wine with terrific drive and persistence.
James Halliday – "Hand-picked in the early morning, whole-bunch pressed, cool-fermented in tank and barrel, then in traditional method in bottle. It is cruising along peacefully, its crisp acidity underpinning the richness developed during 9 years on yeast lees prior to disgorgement. Spice, dried and fresh fruits provide texture and flavour." James Halliday
World Wine – A complex style that contrasts the savoury complexity of charcuterie with the fleshiness of juicy stone fruits, the character of dried pear and the tension of vibrant citrus. A succulent generosity fills the mid-palate, with the biscuity complexity of barrel fermentation and lees age, culminating in the refreshing tension of Pipers River. It finishes long and full, with the generosity of a warm, dry and low-yielding season. Australian Sparkling Report 2017
