‘The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Eloquence Grand Cru is stellar. Ample and beautifully resonant, the Eloquence is just loaded with character. Orchard fruit, dried flowers and chamomile all open up in the glass, but it is the wine's textural feel and balance that I find most captivating. The Extra Brut Eloquence is the same wine as the Brut Conversation, but with no dosage. Usually, lowering dosage yields wines of greater tension, but here, the effect is the exact opposite, as the non-dosé version has quite a bit more body. This release is based on 2014, with 20% reserve wines, mostly Mesnil, with 10% Oger and Avize. Disgorged November 23, 2017. 2019-2027’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 94/100

‘Disgorged in November 2017, the latest rendition of Vergnon's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Eloquence offers up notes of hazelnut, blanched almonds, peach, crisp yellow apple and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, with a frothy but fine mousse, ripe acids and a delicate core of fruit, concluding with a bright and chalky finish. 2018-2028’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 90/100
