Expert Reviews

90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2006

($42) Pale orange. Deep, rich aromas of cherry and raspberry are given an exotic twist by blood orange, apricot pit and caramel accents. Lush and silky on the palate, with fresh redcurrant and raspberry flavors and an intriguing salty/sweet quality building through the finish. This is very wine-like, showing an impressive concentration and sweetness of fruit to stand up to richly flavored or spicy foods. (Sussex Wine Merchants, Moorestown, NJ)

A Beautiful Rose for holiday merry making
04/15/2014
by PinotGrigio/Gris479811
I served this rose to my family and guests during our celebration. Each time a glass went dry i heard calls for more please.Light bubbles, crisp yet that wonderful hint of fruit behind each sip.This will remind you why smaller champagne houses often possess the greatest prize.
great rose

I have purchased this champagne for the last 3 years. The rosé with the 2010 date on it, is drinking absolutely fabulous. I've had for a year now and having just tried against the current cuvee, I can categorically state that this wine improves dramatically with bottle age. The 2010 (not a vintage) has plenty of time left and I am looking forward to the current bottling with a few more months of age on it. Right now, the 2010 designation rivals Billecart-Salmon rosé (my former rosé of choice), while the 2012 designation is still a bit grapey and awkward.
A stunning Pink for the Price

I have had this on numerous occasion and it never fails to please, sweet strawberry and bright fruit it is so good I have to remind myself to slow down when I drink it. Extra nice at $40 a bottle for Champagne!
A real mouthful

Fantastic bottle showing a lot of fruit on the nose and palate (raspberry married with orange?) and lively bubbles. This is great for sipping and very food friendly; it held its own with a variety of dishes at dinner. My wife and guests loved it. Color is deeper than I would have expected, but no complaints from this corner. Wish I had bought more - will certainly keep an eye out for its offering next holiday season!
Bright and Crisp

Bright and crisp and amazingly bubbly, this wine drinks beautifully and finishes with classic Champagne elegance.
What Pink Champagne should be

by Milgrom13884306
Hints of raspberry and cassis in the nose, raspberry and toast notes on the palate, dry but with fruit giving just a hint of sweet in the finish, fine mousse that dances on the tongue.
spectacular

Pure Pink Pleasure

The go-to rose Champagne. It doesn't get much better than this. Lush red fruit supported by warm spice, creamy mousse, and tight acidity. Love the new clear bottle too.

This champagne was absolutely delicious,great flavor,body and yeasty goodness. For the price, a great bargain.
Excellent Champagne at any price

This wine is outstanding—rich and fruity up front, it finishes dry and clean. It is equal to or better than any prestige cuvee from a "big name" champagne house.

I thought this wine was delightful. My bubbly-drinking guests enjoyed it. Happy to have a few more in my cellar.
I'm not even a Rose lover!!

But this brut rose was extremely enjoyable :). Would buy again!
Good but not Great...

Maybe my expectations were too high based on my other selections from Wine Access. Raspberry overtones, small bubbles, but as I said...good...not great...
Disappointed

For the price I expected a grat wine but was disappointed to find it somewhat pedestrian. Not much better than wines of its type at half the price.

This is an excellent Champagne. However, it is difficult to justify the premium price in comparison to premium California sparkling wines, such as Schramsberg.

Was a little disappointed. Expected to be blown away.
Good Bubbly!

I agree with jhs on 5/21/07. It had a nice rich, fruity mouthfeel but still had a nice acidity. So good, I forget what I ate with it. I love the red fruit on the rose champagnes and although I typically drink champagne from the Ay region, I enjoyed this find from Bouzy. Celebrate life, drink champagne for any reason at all!

Jean-Louis Delavenne and his son Jean-Christophe farm 10 hectares in the heart of Bouzy, one of a very few villages in Champagne that can claim Grand Cru status. Located at the foot of the Montagne de Reims these vineyards enjoy nearly perfect southern exposure and yield complex, intensely aromatic pinot noir. The Brut Rosé is a blend of this exceptionally ripe Pinot-from vintages three and four years old-and a small amount of Chardonnay. Dark berry and spice dominate the nose and palate while fine acid and delicate perlage convey the wine's flavors gracefully. Excellent with richer fish and soft-ripened cheeses.
Nice

I am not a Rose person, but this had a wonderful flavor and paired well with machengo cheese
Insufficient minerality for my taste
12/16/2011
by Warnock12063915
Perhaps my expectations were too high, but this Champagne, while good, did not make me wish that I had ordered more. It works better with food - needs more minerality - not the invite-friends-over-for-a-"see-God"-experience that I was hoping for!!
Your spin.

by ward13686872
Shame on you for spinning this as Montrachet with bubbles. It's more like Two Buck Chuck with bubbles! I've opened three bottles hoping the first were not right but unable to finish any - it's just not worth the calories..mostly you guys are right on, not this time.
NOTHING SPECIAL

I normally drink NM non-vintage; I was disappointed in this RM version - but taste is a rather individual thing.....
04/20/2008
by tokay10090004
pretty color, nice smell, beautiful bubbles, taste- hate to say it but v. disappointing for US$48/boutille- tasted two dimensional, wrong dryness, would not buy again
Very Disappointing Bubbly
01/11/2011
by Nairn12654230
I expected great things from this wine as there was plenty of hype. It opened without fuss which I thought odd and in the glass it was bland and in the bottle seemed flat. So, there you are - not cheap and not great. I kept it in the fridge - might it have been too cold? I have three bottles left and I certainly don't want them all to be like this first.
Underwhelming at best.

I found the champagne bubbly by tasteless. The Pinot Flavors were lacking and background sweetness in chmpagne non existent. I have made many purchaces on Wine Access and this was the first that I rated poorly.

About Champagne

Champagne-making is the highly refined art of blending base wines into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. These component wines come from different grape varieties (the white grape Chardonnay and the red varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and from different villages and vineyards. And because only four or five harvests per decade...
