Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"There's intensity to the firm acidity in this toasty Champagne, but it's well-balanced by vanilla- and smoke-tinged flavors of quince, candied orange peel, honey, mineral and salted butter. Big and mouthwatering, with a very long finish. Drink now through 2021." AN (Dec 31, 2010)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The NV Brut Grand Cru Reserve is a wonderful introduction to the Billiot house style and Ambonnay. Rich, voluptuous and powerful, the Grand Cru Reserve flows onto the palate with tons of expressive, generous fruit that flows through nicely to the round, creamy finish. This is a fabulous entry-level wine from Billiot. The Grand Cru Reserve is 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, all from Ambonnay, 50% 2007, 25% 2005, and 25% 2006, bottled with 10 grams of dosage. This is Lot L 01, disgorged June 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2010)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Pale onion skin color, with a delicate bead. Fresh orange and lime on the nose, complicated by a subtle note of floral honey. Racy and precise on entry, offering tight citrus and green apple flavors. Gains flesh with air, picking up candied flower and resinous herb character. Finishes with an intriguing mix of toasted nut and floral qualities and excellent persistence. The blend here is 75% pinot noir and 25% chardonnay." - Josh Raynolds (Nov '08)
