Le Point - Mr Jacques Dupont: “Dried fruit nose, touch of oak, chalk, limestone, creamy, spicy palate, baked apple. The very ripe wines that go into this blend give it a character of strong maturity and autumnal flavors. ” 16.5 / 20
Antonio Galloni: “The Reflet d'Antan is weighless, airy and gracious. Graphite, crushed rocks, petrol, smoke and licorice infuse this super-refined, polished Champagne. Intensely mineral, chalky and savory, Reflet d'Antan is a model of total precision. ” 95 pts.
