Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Racy acidity drives this juicy Champagne, enlivening notes of ripe black raspberry and currant fruit, toast, candied ginger and spun honey. Well-knit and mouthwatering. Disgorged July 2014. Drink now through 2019. 20 cases imported." – AN (Web Only - 2016)

89 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The NV Brut Grande Réserve is powerful and rich, with slightly tropical overtones and more than enough depth to fill out its frame. A dollop of Meunier adds character and complexity. Some rough edges remain, but this is nicely done in its peer group. The current release is 50% 2011 and 50% a perpetual reserve going back nearly three decades. Dosage is 10 grams per liter. Disgorged: July 2014." - Antonio Galloni (September 2016)

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"A Pierre Callot NV Brut Blanc des Blancs Grande Reserve Disg. 7/2013 reflects significantly longer time sur latte than the corresponding “regular” Brut, and is fundamentally more interesting. Marine breeze salinity and alkalinity as well as chalkiness accompany the apple and lemon with their nutty and lentil sprout-like inflections familiar from that only slightly less-expensive basic cuvee. The aforementioned salinity serves for saliva inducement in a sustained, highly refreshing finish. This ought to drink well for at least another 2-3 years." - David Schildknecht (29th Nov 2013)
