‘Vergnon's NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Conversation Grand Cru is creamy, ample and super-expressive. Citrus confit, pastry, spice and pear show a slightly richer side of Chardonnay than most of the wines in this range, much of that coming from the 5 grams of dosage. Wonderfully open-knit and inviting, the Conversation is a terrific introduction to these wines, as it is easy to enjoy and less imposing than some of the more important cuvées. This release is based on 2014, with 20% reserve wines, mostly Mesnil, with 10% Oger and Avize. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: October 17, 2017. 2019-2027’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 92/100

‘Well-spiced and creamy, this is a balanced version, with candied pink grapefruit peel, pickled ginger and ground cardamom imparting a zesty edge to juicy pear and almond paste flavors. Disgorged February 2021. Drink now.’ – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 91/100

‘Disgorged in April 2018, the current release of Vergnon's NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Conversation continues to exhibit a charming nose of toasted coconut, green apples and ripe lemons. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with racy acids, a youthfully frothy mousse and a pure, chalky finish. Expressive and open, it's drinking well today. 2020-2026’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 90/100

‘Pale greenish straw. Interesting depth of aroma. Then it's much less focused on the palate. Neat and refreshing. 2018-2020’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16/20
