'The NV Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Murmure 1er Cru is bright, punchy and super-expressive. A taut, linear expression of Chardonnay emerges from the glass, with plenty of citrus oil, floral and saline character. There is just a bit of angularity here, but it all works. The Murmure is a blend of fruit from Vertus and Villeneuve (all 2016), done in a combination of steel and neutral oak. Zero dosage. Disgorged: June 13, 2019. Drink 2020-2026.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 92/100 (Nov 2020)

'This firm Champagne sets flavors of green apple, Meyer lemon peel and blanched almond on the crunchy bead, backed by crisp acidity and a salty finish. Disgorged June 2019. Drink now through 2022.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 89/100 (Nov 2020)

'Just 7,000 bottles of the Premier Cru Brut Nature are produced. Produced from 100% Chardonnay in Vertus and Villeneuve, this is a steely, mineral style cuvée that will age beautifully. Lemony, fresh herbs and hints of ripe citrus lead to a firm and taut palate that will gain softness and depth with age.' – Roland Peens (Aug 2018)

'The colour is pale yellow with active bubble trains and light foam. The first hit on the nose pointed and lemony. Mineral with hints of fresh herbs. Then a fresher mint appears with tips of citrus. A sharp and tense attack before on the palate releasing its freshness and lightness. Then a firm and mineral footprint, a sign of righteousness, youth and firmness.' – Christophe Constant, Winemaker
