93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The NV Brut Rosé is a knock-out. A Champagne of notable intensity, Billiot's Rosé possesses tremendous richness and power. Sweet red berry fruit, kirsch, rose petal and mind infuse this deeply-colored Rosé with tons of flavor. This is an especially heady, vinous style built on serious texture, with Pinot Noir very much front and center. Disgorged: May 6, 2019. Drink: 2020-2026. (Nov 2020)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant acidity enlivens the rich profile of toasted almond, crushed raspberry and pink grapefruit zest in this harmonious rosé Champagne, while an aromatic skein of ground ginger, anise and graphite rides the finely detailed bead through to the chalky finish. Disgorged May 2019. Drink now through 2025. (11/30/20)"

92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "A discreet if very pretty nose is markedly less fruity than is typical for the genre and flashes more yeast and citrus and red berries, which makes it more interesting. The middle weight flavors possess fine density and focused power and while the supporting mousse is not particularly fine, neither is it coarse. I particularly like the complexity of the drier than average finish as there is once again plenty of yeast and citrus elements in evidence. This is a lovely rosé and worth checking out. Drink: now+."

90+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The Billiot family’s non-vintage Brut Rosé bottling is composed of a blend of seventy-five percent of pinot noir and twenty-five percent chardonnay, with the vins clairs not going through malo. The wine is fifty percent from the base year of 2013 and the balance a split of reserve wines from 2012 and 2011. The wine was quite recently disgorged and is still a bit unsettled at the present time, but underneath there is promise, as the bouquet offers up scents of blood orange, rhubarb, chalk, bread dough and a topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and well-balanced, with frothy mousse, zesty acids, a good core and fine length and grip on the youthful finish. This will be very good, it just needs to recover a bit more from the disgorgement. (Disgorged June 2017). 2017-2030."

90 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Disgorged in May 2018, the latest release of the NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru offers up notes of smoky red apples, Griotte cherries and mandarin. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, powerful and vinous, with ripe acids, a youthfully frothy mousse and a tangy, mouthwatering finish. This is a gastronomic rosé—dominated by Pinot Noir from Ambonnay—that would work well at table. Drink: 2018-2028. (Apr 2019)"
