Antonio Galloni writes:  The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Belles Années is airy and lifted, with lovely aromatic precision and tons of elegance. Crushed rocks, lemon peel, mint, white pepper and jasmine are all nicely delineated in this attractive, understated Blanc de Blancs. This release is 60% 2019 and a 40% blend of 2018-2010. Dosage is 5.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: February 9, 2022.  - Vinous 90

Audrey Frick writes:  The third wine in the range is the NV Champagne Selection Belles Années Brut, which offers more rounded and fleshy aromas compared to the rest of the range. It is floral with toasted brioche and pear, and a bit more autolytic character. It is full upfront, though it quicky brings the house’s classically driven style back into focus. It has fine texture and is balanced, with more rounded charm. Drink over the next 15-20 years.  - Jeb Dunnuck 91

Alison Napjus writes:  Fresh and floral, this finely balanced version offers a delicate mesh of ripe Honeycrisp apple, pickled ginger, blood orange sorbet and chalk set on a fine mousse. Disgorged February 2022. Drink now. 175 cases imported.  - Wine Spectator 90
