Bettane et Desseauve: “Chiseled and deep notes of smoky limestone; only then, the candied red fruits. On the palate, freshness takes precedence over texture, leaving only an aromatic echo. A few tannins at the end of the palate give flesh to gourmet raspberry notes. Everything is there. Cuvée remarkable in its construction and aesthetics. ” 17.5 / 20
Antonio Galloni: “Rilly La Montagne, 100% Pinot Noir, is soft, supple and forward. Exotic floral notes, passion fruit, chamomile and spice grace this pretty, open-knit Champagne. ” 91 pts.
Le Point: “Pear, straw, autumn scents, oak note, caramel, intense, broad, powerful palate, very pastry, length, complexity and gluttony.” * 17.5 / 20
RVF: 16.5 / 20
The Champagne Guide / Tyson STELZER: “A beautiful display of red apple, strawberry hull and spice is underlined by the lovely, fine chalk mineral presence of the northern slopes of the Montagne de Reims. A cuvée of character and poise. ”
