92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "Medium rosé color. A pretty and expressive nose of strawberry and cherry reflect hints of yeast and citrus. There is excellent intensity to the well-defined and delicious flavors that are supported by an almost foamy mousse as well as much better complexity than most "non-prestige" examples of rosé display on the dry and crisp finish where a hint of bitter cherry appears. Drink: now. (Jan 2018)"
91 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$63 list] The NV Brut Rosé is terrific in this release. Creamy and forward, with good backing energy, the Rosé shows how appealing Pinot is in Aÿ. There is lovely depth to the Rosé. At 9 grams per liter, the dosage feels a bit high, and yet the wine is nicely balanced. Disgorged: October, 2019. Drink: 2020-2023. (Nov 2020)"
91 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "This was my first experience with the wines of Champagne Henri Goutorbe in Aÿ, and I was quite impressed with the quality of their non-vintage Brut Rosé. The family estate, started by Henri (born in 1922) was based on a vine nursery business started by his father, is now run by Henri’s great-grandchildren, Elisabeth and Etienne Goutorbe. Their non-vintage Brut Rosé is a blend of seventy-five percent pinot noir and twenty-five percent chardonnay, with fifteen percent of the blend still pinot noir to give the wine its lovely salmon color. The bouquet is a lovely and vibrant blend of strawberries, a touch of tangerine, wheat bread, superb minerality and a nice dollop of caraway seed in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a good core, elegant mousse and fine length and grip on the well-balanced finish. Good juice."
90 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Disgorged in May 2018 and based on the 2015 vintage, the NV Brut Grand Cru Rosé is a generous, extroverted wine, bursting with aromas of raspberries, strawberries, fresh peaches and peonies. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with an expressive core of fruit, ripe acids and a charming, open-knit and immediate profile. Drink: 2018-2028. (Apr 2019)"
