92/100 Robert Parker : Disgorged in January 2019, the latest release of Gaston Chiquet's NV Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs d'Aÿ is showing beautifully, opening in the glass with scents of crisp yellow orchard fruit, white flowers, blanched almonds and fresh peach. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and charming, with a succulent core of fruit, a delicate pinpoint mousse and a nicely defined finish. Elegant and expressive, this is a beautifully balanced Blanc de Blancs that would make for a perfect aperitif.

 92/100 Vinous: One of the hidden gems in this range, the Brut Blanc de Blancs d’Aÿ is striking. It is also pretty tightly wound, so a year or two of cellaring is absolutely essential. Citrus peel, white flowers, mint and crushed rocks abound. I have to say, I am pretty surprised how taut the Blanc de Blancs is. Time in the glass releases attractive tropical accents that add character and also provide some hints as to where the wine is headed. More than anything else, the texture and persistence are so alluring. As always, the NV Blanc de Blancs d'Aÿ, is in reality a vintage wine, in this case 2014. Disgorged: November, 2019. Drinking window: 2021 - 2030

92/100 Wins&Spirits: Though Aÿ is generally a pinot noir town, the Chiquets grow a distinctly fragrant chardonnay in its chalky soils. The green apple scent is tight and earthy, while the flavors are pure, with a pristine, chamomile-flower length. Firmly structured, it feels cool, zesty and tense.
