Wine Enthusiast, 100 Points 

"One of the great Champagnes both for its richness and its longevity, this latest incarnation is superb. The wine's richness is linked to the ripe fruit and the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend. It also shines in the perfect balance between the texture, the minerality and the integration of the fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but it will be better from 2020 and then for many years to come. *Ranked #4 Top Cellar Selections of 2018*

James Suckling, 97 Points 

"I love the balance between weight and agility in this wine with a dense and compact palate. Yet, there’s brightness and creaminess that melts into the glass. Lots of brioche, pie crust and strawberry tart. Serious balancing act here. Drinkable, but better with a few years of age.

Wine Advocate, 97+ Points 

"The 2008 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill continues to stand out as the finest rendition of this bottling released in the last 10 years. Just beginning to enter its early drinking window, it wafts from the glass with aromas of ripe apple, confit citrus and mirabelle plum mingled with notions of sweet spices, honeycomb, dried fruits and crème brûlée. Full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's layered and complete, with a racy spine of acidity and a long, penetrating finish." 

Jasper Morris, 96 Points 

"I opened two bottles of this to taste as the first seemed oddly subdued (note: a tiny bit of bottle variation for this wine too). The second bottle was delightful: yeast-complexed Pinot Fruit that is surprisingly light on its feet, with fruit just beginning to build. There is more complexity to come, and bottles will need another ten years to reveal some tertiary uplift. Excellent! *Five Stars*

Wine Spectator, 96 Points 

"This lovely, elegant version is more about restraint and finesse than power, caressing the palate with a silky mousse and a finely woven range of ripe Asian pear, biscuit and star fruit flavors, accented by elderflower, ground ginger and almond skin notes. Lightly mouthwatering, expanding on the chalk-tinged finish. *Collectible*
