92 Points - Antonio Galloni:
A model of total finesse, the NV Brut Reserve speaks in soft, hushed tones. Dried pear, smoke, herb and dried red stone fruit are nicely delineated, but it is the wine’s exceptional balance and overall class that stand out most. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s breadth and intensity as it fleshes out in all dimensions." (Jul 2017)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dense and muscular, yet graceful, this red balances ripe blackberry and cassis flavors with savory black olive, bitter chocolate and mineral notes. The firm tannins are well-integrated, and lively acidity keeps this fresh through the spicy and floral finish. Drink now through 2028. 420 cases made." - TM (Jul 2017)

"A ripe style, this sports cherry, raspberry, violet and mineral aromas and flavors, matched to a tensile structure, revealing fine balance and length. Best from 2021 through 2033." — B.S. (Jun 5, 2019)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"From a plot above and adjacent to the Prälat (so, the same soils and incline but different microclimates), the 2016 Erdener Treppchen Riesling GG Alte Reben is pure, fresh and flinty on the nose, beautifully precise and already mouthwatering. Piquant, fresh and very elegant on the palate, this is a dense, very mineral and salty Treppchen with a long and mouthwatering finish. Very long and tense, with great finesse and elegance. This has a beautifully crystalline character but more rich and lush compared to the Würzgarten." - Stephan Reinhardt (27th Apr 2018)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Dense and fruity with lovely, layered tannins and lots of blueberries, blackberries and hints of dried flowers. Full body, dusty, gritty tannins and a flavorful finish. Chewy, yet will come around with two or three years of bottle age. Drink after 2022." - (9 Feb, 2019)

"Made mostly from Oak Knoll District fruit, this perennial favorite offers rich tones of mocha, blackberry and cinnamon toast that are balanced by underlying acidity. It's a crowd-pleasing style that strikes a harmonious chord between fruit and structure." - Virginie Boone (12/31/2018)

2006 - Ratings & Reviews
98 Points & Editor's Choice- Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is the latest release of this legendary wine. A blend, although with a majority of Pinot Noir (Churchill's preference), the wine is rich, just beginning to show wonderful signs of maturity. It still has intense fruit along with the taut mineral texture that will allow the wine to age further. It is a standout Champagne from this vintage. Drink now, although this Champagne will age for many years. " - Roger Voss (Aug 2018)

2008 - Ratings & Reviews

100 Points & #4 of Top Cellar Selections of 2018- Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"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." - RV (Dec 2018)

97 Points & Platinum: Best in Show: Best in Show - 2019 DECANTER World Wine Awards:
"Even in potentially cool zones like the foggy Sonoma Coast, there's always a breadth and a grandeur to California's finest Pinot Noirs. What our judges liked so much about this example was the fact that its fundamental scale was no impediment to a sense of finesse and refinement in the fruit. You'll find almost perfumed, violet-and-rose scents behind the fresh plum, while on the palate this is a concentrated and vivacious wine with resonant black-fruit acidity, light tannins, delicious underlying sweetness and mouth-watering purity and freshness. Drink 2019-2025"

" A very attractive Sardinian red that combines great ripe plums with a hot, dry-earth character and has a very food-friendly balance of ripeness and soft tannins. Drink now with autumn or winter dishes." - (13 Aug, 2018)
