Wine Advocate (94)- "The Contratto 2014 Metodo Classico Special Cuvée Pas Dosé is very beautiful with generous fruit weight and a soft, medium to full-bodied style that feels especially bright and fresh in this cool vintage. The wine shows a gold-copper appearance, and the beading is very fine and silky. There is orange skin and bitter almond on the lovely finish."
James Suckling (93)- "This is more intense and concentrated with candied pineapples and peaches as well as hints of walnuts, almonds and pie crust. Full and dense with fine bubbles. Bone-dry with zingy acidity. Long and steady. Well made. Drink now."
James Suckling (93)- "Notes of dried apples, citrus rind, honeysuckle and toasted almonds. Medium- to full-bodied with vivid acidity and a savory fruit character. Fine mousse and round texture. Flavorful and satisfying with a mineral finish. Drink now."
