“The NV Réserve Oubliée (2013 base) is the finest edition of this wine yet. Airy, weightless and gracious, but with plenty of depth, the Réserve Oubliée is absolutely fabulous. A range of floral, savory and citrus nuances emerge from a Champagne endowed with tremendous class and personality. As a reminder, the Réserve Oubliée is the same base wine as the Cuvée de Réserve, but aged an extra year on the lees and bottled under cork rather than crown seal.” 94 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Perpetual reserve solera of 23 vintages spanning 1988 to 2012, missing only the inferior 1999 and 2003; a selection of the best Croatian oak foudres, concrete and stainless steel tanks; 4g/L dosage from grape juice aged in a small barrel; aged under natural cork.

Few reserves can boast such ravishing integration, seamless internal harmony and sheer completeness, a credit to both the genius of this modified solera and the painstakingly tended vines that feed it. Rodolphe modestly points to the terroir as the inspiration and driver of its endurance. He upholds the 2012 base as the best yet and he’s right. It sings with the freshness and dynamic tension of the réserve perpétuelle, charged with great energy and integrity.

The salt minerality is super fine and deep set. Age has brought depth and presence in a deeply layered backdrop of spice, apple and almond. Its richness is profound, held in focus by the formidable presence of super-fine salt chalk mineral structure that draws out fantastic length and character. 94 points - Tyson Stelzer
