Vinous 92 points - (45% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier; 8 g/l dosage; L206454 17741): Pale orange. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and jasmine aromas, with suave mineral and smoky lees notes adding complexity. Spicy and precise on the palate, showing very good punch to its strawberry and bitter cherry flavors. Opens up smoothly with air and picks up a bitter rhubarb quality that lingers onto the long, tightly focused finish. This bottling showed more brawny character than many past renditions of this cuvee, but with no lack of vivacity.
James Suckling 94 points - An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth. Drink now.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Fresh and accessible, this finely balanced rose shows a delicate palate of white raspberry, pastry and candied lemon zest, with a hint of briny oyster shell riding the lacy mousse. Drink now through 2018.

Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Such an elegant, ethereal wine, this orange-pink wine is dry and crisp with fruity raspberry flavor at the fore. This particular bottling could improve for a year, but makes a great food Champagne now. (Dec 2013)
Wine Advocate 89 points - The NV Brut Rose is a pretty, gracious wine.
