Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2018)91 pts

Arpège is an unfiltered Chardonnay blend of the 2010 vintage (53%) and the 2001 vintage (47%) that was bottled in May 2013 and disgorged in October 2017 as Extra Brut. The grapes are sourced in Vertus and Villeneuve. The intensely yellow colored Côte des Blancs offers a clear, fresh and characteristic bouquet with bright fruit and citrus aromas along with lovely pure chalky/mineral notes. Stimulatingly pure, fresh and mineral on the palate, this blend reveals nice grip and bright, elegant fruit along with remarkable purity, elegance and lots of character. Tasted April 2018.
