“Roederer's soon-to-be-released 2011 Blanc de Blancs (no Cristal, no Vintage) offers a clear, bright, fresh and very delicate and floral bouquet with almond, hazelnut and nougat aromas. 30% of the cuvée was fermented in oak to give a more rich and round style of Blanc de Blancs since the characteristic salinity comes in the finish. In fact, the 2011 is deliciously rich and charming but also pure, highly delicate and lifted by an airy freshness. The finish is pure and salty and underlines the great elegance, finesse and supple lightness of the 2011. To tell you the truth, this is a damn good 2011!.” - Robert Parker (WA #237) 

“Cellar Selection! This wine is made from Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. The well-balanced palate is textured and mineral driven, with a crisp white-fruit flavor that comes together well. This can be enjoyed now, although it will be better from 2020.” - Wine Enthusiast (12/18) 

“An elegant Champagne, this is finely knit and fresh, marrying the delicate mousse and lithe acidic frame with notes of Gala apple, lemon sorbet and slivered almond, accented by hints of fleur de sel, graphite and spice.” - Wine Spectator (12/18) 

“Four plots in Avize, a village that delivers strong character in Blanc de Blancs, picked later and riper. The delicate lemons and fine, chalky minerals here are impressive. Mouth-filling, vinous flesh with yellow-grapefruit and nectarine flavors. Super long, fresh and focused mineral finish. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling (9/18)
