- Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator (Nov, 2014)

WE 91

A blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, this is the top wine from Vollereaux. It is dry and crisp, although with ripe fruits in the background. Just becoming mature, this is a wine to hold for another couple of years and drink from 2018.

- Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (Dec, 2016)

Firm and smoky, with a chalky texture, this balanced rosé shows more mineral character than it does hints of mulberry, dried herb and toasted raisin bread.

- Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator (2015)

Canard-Duchene Charles VII Grande Cuvee de Beaute Blanc de Noirs NV (750 ml) Louis de Sacy Brut Grand Cru NV (1.5 Liter) Ayala Rose No. 8 Brut 2008 (750 ml)
WE 91

Labeled as a blanc de noirs, this is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier. It has the weight and richness you would expect from a Champagne made only from red grapes, textured and full of rich apple and pear fruits.

- Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (Dec, 2016)
WE 91, WS 90

With some wood fermentation, this is a particularly rich wine. The wood gives roundness and extra richness that is balanced by the mineral and taut texture. The fruit is less important than the texture, a background of crisp apples and tight acidity. This bottling is ready to drink.

- Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (Dec, 2015)
JS 95

A superb vintage rosé dedicated to the 2008 harvest, this has an impressively composed style. It's really smooth and supple building excellently and delivering a seamlessly composed impression. The aromas are of fragrant red cherries but in bright, fresh and gently spicy mode. The palate's precisely cut and has supple, tangy acidity underpinning some very pliable fruit flesh, a silky texture and a velvety finish. Impressive length and carefully delivered power here!

- James Suckling (2016)

- Alison, Napjus, Wine Spectator (Dec, 2015)
IWC 91

Bright orange-pink. Smoky, lees-tinged aromas of ripe red berries, orange zest and honey, with a hint of chamomile in the background. Juicy, penetrating redcurrant and tangerine flavors are braced and lifted by juicy acidity. Stretches out and gains flesh on the finish, which leaves suave floral pastille and berry skin notes behind. The marriage of richness and tension here will make this Champagne very flexible with food.

- Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar (Jan, 2015)
JS 92, WE 92, WS 92

Finely knit and elegant overall, this vivacious Champagne is creamy and satiny in texture, with layers of yellow plum, chalk, toast, glazed apricot and lemon curd. Offers a lingering, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020.

WS 94

Wonderfully aromatic and finely detailed, with a layered profile of dried apricot, raw almond, honey, ground coffee, nutmeg and orange bergamot. Shows power and focus, yet this is set in a sleek, finely knit frame. The chalky minerality firms the long, smoky finish. Disgorged July 2015. Drink now through 2026.

- Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator (Sept, 2016)
WE 97, WS 94

This toasty, superbly mature wine is part of a series of releases featuring the house's cellar-matured Champagnes. This emerges from the glass with complex flavors of almond, brioche, citrus and a hint of steeliness. The majestic richness of the wine has fully justified its decades of aging.

- Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (Dec, 2012)
WA 96, WS 93

Seductive and wonderfully balanced, crisp yet it caresses the palate. Has a very complex toasted bread and buttery croissant character along with some nutmeg, spice, chocolate and vanilla notes.
Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon P2 Plenitude Brut 2000 (750 ml) Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon Brut 2009 (1.5 Liter) Dom Perignon P2 Plenitude Brut Rose 1996 (750 ml)
JS 99

A Champagne that has turned to a very fine texture with dried pineapple and lemon character. Medium to full body, complex and flavorful palate. Shows length and beauty. Pie crust, cooked apple and lemon rind continue on the finish. A truly great 2000 with a combination of finesse and strength. It’s very, very minerally to a point of sea salt. It was disgorged in first half of 2016. Drink or hold.

- James Suckling
WS 96

There's a subtle power to this graceful Champagne, which boasts a firm, crystalline frame of acidity married to the fine, satinlike mousse and notes of white raspberry, brioche and Earl Grey tea. Seamless through to the long finish of smoke and spice accents, this opens beautifully in the glass. Drink now through 2029.

- Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator (Nov, 2017)
JS 96

This has plenty of dried roses, rose hip and other very gently seductive perfumes on offer here such as wild cherries, some pepper, plenty of spices and pink, musky marshmallows. The autolysis is still very discreet, although the fruits have changed to another phase of more savory characters and are really delicate. This is undoubtedly a restrained Champagne on a very slow path of evolution. The palate's smoothly layered with the phenolics shaping it in the first phase of the palate, casting a long tube-like form. The core is composed of dried strawberries, some spiced cherries, some dried peaches and pink grapefruit to boot. It then gives way to fresh acidity as it delivers a really thrilling and mouth-watering finish with some toasty hazelnuts and flamed orange zest to close. Superb focus, and the vintage character of the acidity and length is stunning. Beautifully preserved in the cellars for some twenty-odd years. What a treat! Drink now and for another decade or more. This will age on cork very nicely. Truly a superb expression of Dom Perignon Rosé.

- James Suckling (Oct, 2016)
Dom Perignon P2 Plenitude Brut Rose 1995 (750 ml) Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut NV (6 Liter) Armand de Brignac Brut Rose Ace of Spades, Chapmagne NV (1.5 Liter)
18.5/20 Jancis Robinson

This is released, in tiny quantities like all P2 rosés – for the moment anyway. Although I suppose this could change if the house decides to increase the production of Dom Pérignon rosé. The color is pale rose pink with just a hint of blue – in fact it almost looks younger than the 2004 first release tasted alongside it. Still reasonably vigorous bead. Haunting, warm nose - super-complex with rose petals and a hint of dill pickle - that gives way to a rather coy, super-fruity palate that ends bone dry. Smells of warm vegetables - tomatoes?! Masses of appetizing development. Great, throat-warming finish. Delicate. Lacy texture. Very fine, though so delicate that it would need careful food matching. Very pretty and complex with strawberry notes. Textured and intellectual.

- Jancis Robinson (April, 2015)
WS 90

Bright and lightly toasty, this elegant Champagne layers flavors of cassis, crushed hazelnut and lemon meringue pie on the creamy bead. Drink now through 2019.

- Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator (Dec, 2016)
W&S 91

Wood tones dominate this wine when it's first opened, bringing ginger beer and a masculine, cologne-like scent to the savory, Morello cherry flavors. It develops floral aromas with air, a powerful cherry weightlessness that opens up and races past the woody curves of the finish. A stylized rosé, this has an intriguing character to back it up. For seared duck breast or other gamey meats.
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Cave Privee Collection Brut 1982 (1.5 Liter) Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Champagne NV (9 Liter) Dominus Estate Vertical Combo 2001, 2004, 2010 (750 ml)
WS 94

Bright, sleek and elegant, with mouthwatering acidity, this is soft and creamy in texture, offering hints of smoked almond and whole-grain toast, accented by dried apple, crème brûlée and dried herb notes. Rich details of grilled nut and oyster shell linger on the persistent finish. Drink now through 2024.

- Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator (Dec, 2014)

2001: WA 98

A brilliant showing for Christian Moueix’s well-known Napanook Vineyard, the 2001 Dominus is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. A classic in the making, this is a flawless, seamless example of elegant, complex Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that possesses a Bordeaux-like personality. This gorgeous, sexy, opulent, dense ruby/purple-colored wine reveals sweet caramel, mocha, creme de cassis and kirsch notes intermixed with a hint of espresso roast as well as underbrush. Ripe, long and full-bodied with well-integrated tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood, this prodigious 2001 is drinkable now and over the next 25+ years given this estate’s longevity track record. A virtually perfect wine, it is one of the most complex 2001s at present. Drink through 2036.

- Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (May, 2011)

2004: WA 97

Like so many 2004s, the 2004 Dominus is a full-bodied wine showing brilliantly at age ten, with loads of complex cedar, kirsch, Christmas fruitcake, black currants and spice box. It has a creamy, opulent texture, but remains light on its feet. This sexy wine is showing exceptionally well and is best drunk over the next 10-15 years. Not one of the longest-lived wines from Dominus, but it is certainly at a wonderful point in its evolution right now. Drink through 2029.

- Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (April, 2014)

2010: WA 100

Composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the stunning, full-bodied 2010 Dominus boasts an exceptional perfume of hoisin sauce, licorice, underbrush, forest floor, plums, black currants and jammy cherries intertwined with hints of cedar, baking spices and oak. Full-bodied and voluptuously textured, the 2010 is on a slightly faster evolutionary track than the 2009 (somewhat of an anomaly for these two vintages). This exquisite as well as prodigious 2010 can be drunk young, but it should age effortlessly for 20-25 years. Bravo!

- Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (Oct, 2013)
Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Millesime, Champagne 2006 (3 Liter)
V 97, JS 97, IWC 95, WE 95, WS 95

This elegant version shows beautiful texture and a sense of finesse despite the underlying power of vibrant acidity and smoky minerality. The palate offers a finely layered mesh of blackberry, poached pear, almond pastry, lemon zest and pickled ginger flavors. Drink now through 2028.

- Allison Napjus, Wine Spectator (Nov, 2013)
