"What an aromatic and expressive chardonnay this is, and it’s also a rich and very sensual Blanc de Blancs champagne! The toasted-hazelnut, candied-citrus, vanilla and toast aromas remind me of maturing, high-end white Burgundy, as does the very long, silky finish. A cuvée based on the 2016 vintage with a generous dose of perpetual reserve (solera system), founded in 1990." - 94 Points, James Suckling

"The Blanc de Craie marries the energy of Chardonnay (100%) with the oak-inflected structure that is such a signature of the house. Lemon confit, dried flowers, ginger, cinnamon, mint, chamomile and spice all grace this layered, mid-weight Champagne from Henri Giraud." - 92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
