In the Glass: Pale gold/yellow in colour, light, limpid and crystalline, fizzing with thousands of bubbles. Nose: An open and expressive nose, with rich flavours of plump, ripe yellow stone fruit such as apricots or peaches or even dried fruit (almonds). Palate: From the first sip the palate is rich, rounded and powerful. It shows a lovely development with a soft freshness combined. Food matches: Perfect as a refreshing accompaniment to simple grilled meat dishes in the summer heat. The light salty tang on the champagne's finish reflects wonderfully with crisp, pan-fried garden vegetables, cooked and seasoned à la Passard ...

Wine SpectatorRefined and creamy, with delicate acidity that finds fine balance with the layers of poached apple and pear, lemon cake, ground ginger, smoke and almond cream flavors. Very elegant. Drink now through 2020. 28,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastTense and crisp, this is a balanced food-friendly Champagne. It is dry, and its apple- and citrus-like acidity has rounded out with some bottle age. The acidity cuts right through to give the wine a great lift of freshness on the finish.

International Wine CellarLight yellow with a powerful, frothy bead. Gentle orange and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by toasty lees and sweet butter. Plump and creamy, with supple poached pear and soft citrus flavors deepened by buttery brioche and given vibrancy by gentle clove and cinnamon. I prefer the verve and clarity of this bottling to the Grande Reserve this year.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Brut Excellence is a pretty, expressive wine that makes a good introduction to the house style. Clean veins of minerality support the fruit in this mid-weight, attractive wine. Pears, flowers and sweet spices are nicely layered into the finish. This is Lot # L0418110. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
