This wine from the most famous house in all of Champagne is the exact same wine as the ever-present Yellow label with 12% red pinot noir from the famous Montagne de Reims region (where pinot noir reigns supreme) added into the blend. 60 different Crus are selected from all three grapes - Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Noir for the blend. Orange peel, ripe strawberry, a hint of exotic spice - this wine has weight and body, flesh and rich texture to please all occasions.
Wine Spectator 91 points - This mouthwatering rose Champagne shows textural density, sitting like raw silk on the palate and offering flavors of dried white cherry, grapefruit granita and ground ginger, with a light and lingering toast note. Drink now. -AN.November/2018
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This is a beautiful, full rose that is rich and shows a fine balance between acidity and fruitiness. This bottling is also mature with toastiness coming through, giving a softer, rounder character. There is weight, and great acidity on the finish..Roger Voss, December/2013
Wine & Spirits 90 points - This wine tastes fruitier than Yellow Label, with raspberry and grape flavors giving a sense of sweetness to the blend. There's enough spicy acidity to keep it balanced and focused through a flinty, smoky finish..December/2018
James Suckling 92 points - Aromas of crabapple, orange peel and dried strawberries. Full-bodied, layered and very flavorful, yet there's a creamy texture and a bright and vivid finish. Shows energy. VCP does excellent rose. Drink now..September/2018
