Reviews:

“The Silver is a gorgeous, grand green patina, a stoic and manifest dry, classic glass of Champagne. Aromas are in exaction, in compliance and in direct connectivity to a grower’s condition. Just a sliver of earthy, sweet oxidative sumptuousness streaks up the middle palate, lingers, turns away from the sun and lets the mist fall in late. Fine, linear acidity takes over and tangs the tame beginning, which proceeds to relinquish submissively, relegating it as just a faint memory. “What a swell party this is! What Pommery!” Exceptional class, chaste and chasmic-bridging Champagne. Well, did you evah? Tasted October 2014.” - 93 points (Michael Godel, Wine Align, October 2014)

“A fresh, balanced, yeasty and citrus-driven example of champagne, which hits a fine balance between fresh and mature, fruity and yeasty flavours. Minerality is a feature on the palate, and crisp acids carry the finish. A classy and elegant wine from Pommery. Tasted October 2014. Value Rating: **” - 92 points (John Szabo, MS, Wine Align, October 2014)

“This is quite mature gold-shaded Champagne with nicely lifted, complex aromas of toasted nuts, brioche and dried fruit - very typical matured Champagne aromatics. It’s medium weight, with creamy mousse, taut mouth-watering acidity and nutty bitterness. Quite dry and somewhat astringent on the finish. Excellent length; well put together if a bit obvious. Tasted October 2014” - 91 points (David Lawrason, Wine Align, October 2014)
