96 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(disgorged January 2018, 24% chardonnay, 62% pinot, 14% meunier; more than 85% grand cru and premier cru; 5-6% red wine; 7-8g/L dosage). The house prides itself on its red wine, and such is its strength, concentration, depth of colour and robust tannin structure that a tiny 5–6% is all that is required. Like Special Cuvée, it is matured 3–4 years on lees. While the proportion of reserves in Special Cuvée have increased from 40% to 60% over the past decade, reserves for Rosé Brut have been held stable to maintain freshness. This is a breathtaking rosé, full-bodied in every way, with magnificent stature, spellbinding purity and impeccable poise. Greater elegance is the aspiration, and it meets the brief with effortless grace and a gorgeous medium-salmon hue. Pinot noir communicates its characterful poise in very pretty red cherry, and wild strawberry fruit, transposed on a background of classic Bollinger complexity of mixed spice, even subtle suggestions of coffee bean and dark chocolate. It’s all intricately laced together with fine-tuned acidity, a creamy bead and subtle tannin texture, illuminated brilliantly by glittering chalk minerality, carrying the finish with delightful persistence and effortless poise. A rosé that delivers that great paradox of vibrant liveliness and profound depth. (2020-2021)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$110 list] A graceful rosé Champagne, giving an overall impression of delicacy and finesse that belies the chiseled acidity, minerally underpinning and integrated flavors of raspberry and white peach fruit, toast point, slivered almond, candied pink grapefruit peel and pickled ginger. Hard to stop sipping. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Drink now through 2026. (11/15/21)"

93 points James Suckling: "Deep red-berry nose, plus some nectarine, spice and candied-orange notes. Powerful and fresh, the hint of tannin from the red-wine component of the blend neatly balanced by the creaminess. Excellent textural complexity, then a long, delicately spicy and mineral finish. Disgorged in June 2021. Drink now. (12/5/21)"
