Ratings & Reviews


93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Disgorged in July 2017, the 2012 Brut Millésimé Ambonnay Grand Cru is excellent, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of honeyed orchard fruit, gingerbread, smoky peach and subtle spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, pure and racy, with a broad, delicately textural attack, a deep and youthfully tight-knit core and a bright spine of acidity, displaying a frothy mousse and a long, focused finish. While the wine is already drinking well, it appears to possess considerable potential to improve further in the cellar." -William Kelley (30th Apr 2019)
91+ Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Billiot's 2012 is a big, powerful wine that captures the natural intensity of Ambonnay. Even so, the 2012 is raw, tightly wound and in need of cellaring despite its considerable appeal and potential. There is no shortage of intensity to the dry, bracing finish. The blend is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged: June 2016." - (Dec 2016)
91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Spice and floral notes accent juicy blood orange, pickled ginger and biscuit flavors in this vibrant Champagne, with a fine mousse and subtle, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2025. 100 cases imported." — AN (Web Only 2018)
