Wine Spectator 93 points - Creamy and detailed in texture, this finely meshed Champagne features a firm backbone of acidity and rich minerality. Disgorged November 2013. Drink now through 2026.-A.N. (Sep 30 2015)
Vinous 91 points - Dried rose petals, anise, sweet red cherries and mint waft from the glass in the 2006 Brut Rose Grand Vintage. The 2006 is a big, large-scaled Rose built on depth and structure. The flavors show early signs of development, but the 2006 should continue to drink well for many years based on its stuffing. Today the Rose is a bit tight. I won’t be surprised to see it improve over the next few years. In 2006, the Grand Vintage Rose is 47% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, with a high percentage of still Pinot Noir (23%) that gives the wine much of its pure vinosity. Dosage is 5 grams per liter.
