92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
Limpid gold. Intensely perfumed bouquet of orange zest, pear and toasty, plus a touch of pomegranate. Deep, spicy orchard fruit flavors are complicated by notes of peach pit and lemon pith, with the leesy note repeating. Rich but lively, finishing with excellent clarity and spicy persistence. (I also had the chance to retaste the 2002 Blanc de Blancs and it is showing more depth and chewiness than last year, with a deeper pear quality but also good citrus-driven energy. It should be entering its peak drinking window in the next three years or so.) (Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley, CA) 92 points

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A mineral base note and firm acidity frame this deftly crafted bubbly, integrated with subtle yellow apple, currant, whole-grain toast and ground pink peppercorn flavors. A hint of lemon zest echoes on the long finish. Disgorged October 2010. Drink now through 2022." –AN (Nov 30, 2011)

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"It may be dry, but with its mature edge of toast, this glorious wine also has richness. It is elegant, striated with acidity and the purest lemon juice flavors. Although the toast character is there, it will certainly age over many years." - RV (12/1/2011)

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This well-aged wine from a top Champagne vintage is just now ready to drink after 12 years. It has a touch of toast, but it's the rich, complex texture and fine structure that set it apart. It's not a dry wine, it feels soft. It is so well integrated, elegant with hints of apples, a layer of minerality and still-fresh final acidity." - Roger Voss (12/1/2014)

96 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Magnificent in its complexity and pure breeding, the 2002 Extra Brut Celebris has it all. The Extra Brut style confers the signature Gosset drive, while extended time on the lees has given the wine just enough texture and body to fill out nicely. In the meantime, the aromas and flavors have mellowed into those that are typical of Champagne entering the first plateau of its maturity. The 2002 is vinous, fleshy and super-expressive, yet retains striking freshness throughout. Candied lemon peel, apricot jam, honey, mint, spices and sage form a compelling fabric of flavors and textures in a knock-out Champagne that is peaking today. The 2002 is 52% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir from vineyards in Aÿ, Bouzy, Verzy, Chouilly and Cramant." - Antonio Galloni (November 2015)

98 Points - James Suckling:
"A superfine nose with the freshness still very much leading the way. Lemon and fresh wild strawberries, almond milk and a hint of brulée toffee; really lively. The palate has a bright, crunchy and assertive burst of lemon flavor on entry with white cherries and smooth, sherbet-like texture that delivers weight with elegance. Great balance here. Impressive and youthful, super pure and full of power." - (July 9th, 2015)

99 Points - James Suckling:
"It's striking that is as fresh as it is given the ten years in the cellars. It has a fine citrus nose with plenty of lemons, grapefruit and yellow chalky notes, not to mention some lighter floral elements. The palate is super dry (dosage at 3-4g), and there's a silky, sherbet-like texture that makes this smooth fine and long. The citrus flavors give way to the surging acidity and the finish twists very slowly through to lightly toasted cashew nuts mingled with complex fruit and citrus flavors. Disgorged October 22, 2013." - (October 8, 2016)

Wine & Spirits Magazine - 100 Points
"If a wine could ever make you want to pull the top down on your '68 Ferrari convertible, rip off the rear view mirror and take off, this is it. It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal Rosé, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earth bound. All the scents and flavors seem to emanate from limestone, as does the acidity, which hits at the front of the mouth and powers through the wine with the kind of solar energy that lifts mist off the white chalk on a cool morning in Cramant. The wine goes on for miles. It's already irresistible, and will only improve with ten, 20, 30 and 40 years of age."
