Wine Advocate

94+ Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a single parcel in Urville, the 2008 Brut Grande Sendrée is exceptional, opening in the glass with incipiently rich aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, brioche, marzipan and wheat toast that seems to be on the cusp of acquiring more nutty complexity. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and tight-knit, with superb concentration and structural tension, built around racy acids and concluding with an attractively chalky finish. In keeping with the vintage, this is quite a tensile, reserved Grande Sendrée, but its potential is considerable. Readers should plan on forgetting the 2008 for another four or five years if they wish to catch it at the beginning of its plenitude. It's a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay, one-third of which was fermented in barrel; it was disgorged after seven years sur lattes with five grams per liter dosage." 04/19

James Suckling

93 Points, James Suckling, "A step up on the previous release (2006), this has good punchy, assertive and focused style to it with ripe lemons and peach fruits, some blueberry pastry, plenty of autolysis and honey. The palate's smooth and dense, has impressive phenolic shape and drive, and balances neatly through the finish. Drink now and for 5+ years." 10/16


91 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Grande Sendrée Champagne/Sparkling) A pungent nose consists of notes of petrol, yeast, citrus confit and various white orchard fruit aromas. There is a lovely sense of energy to the well-detailed and decidedly crisp flavors that are supported by a vigorous and moderately fine mousse, all wrapped in a solidly persistent if not particularly complex finale. To be fair, this is still very young and more depth will undoubtedly develop but even so, I would buy this only if you intend to cellar it for at least 3 to 5 years. (Drink starting 2020)" 06/17, Issue #67
