95pts, Decanter - A very rich, classy wine with vanilla-dusted, crisp red fruits on the palate and great finesse on its long, seductive finish. This vintage will compete with the 1961 as the best rosé that Veuve Clicquot has produced since the legendary 1959; it won the much coveted Vintage Rosé Champagne Trophy at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards.
WS 92 IWC 92 W&S 92 WE 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - A vintage Champagne, close to an aperitif in style, showing fine balance, delicate texture and well-knit, bright acidity. Features a pretty palate of raspberry, spiced apple, biscuit, ginger and lemon zest notes. Drink now through 2027.
According to International Wine Cellar - Bright orange-pink. Smoke- and mineral-tinged aromas of raspberry, poached pear, rose oil and sweet butter. Toasty and broad but spry, offering vibrant red fruit and blood orange flavors that pick up a refreshingly bitter edge with aeration. Closes on a spicy note, with excellent focus and slow-building minerality. The fruit for this Champagne is sourced from up to 20 different premier and grand cru villages, including Ay and Verzenay for the pinot noir and Mesnil-sur-Oger for the chardonnay.
According to Wine & Spirits - Deep pink in color, this is a cherry-scented rosé with full pinot noir flavors. The texture is broad and round, its edges defined by pink grapefruit pith acidity. There's gentle chalkiness to the dry finish, making this appealing to drink now with salmon tartare. It should develop more depth of flavor with bottle age.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Still very young, with the crispest of red currant fruits. There are almond and quince flavors to go with the raspberry juice acidity. At this stage, the dosage is not full integrated, showing an awkward final sweetness. Age for 4–5 years.
