Wine Spectator (92 points):
"An elegant Champagne that shows lovely integration, framing flavors of Gala apple, white cherry, chalk and grated ginger with bright, lemony acidity and a finely detailed mousse. Minerally finish. "
Galloni (91 points):
"Margaine's NV Le Brut is pure, precise and crystalline, as his wines tend to be. Mint, crushed rocks, apple, pear and lemon peel are finely-sketched. Readers who enjoy taut, focused Champagnes will adore the Le Brut. Best of all, it is a gorgeous wine for the money."
