94 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$100 list] This great rosé combines texture with bright fruit and a bit of age. It is poised between a ripe dosage and a crisp texture, with red fruits and toastiness marking the flavors. It is a fine bottling to enjoy now. Alcohol 12%. (Dec 2020)"
93-94 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(2012 base vintage; 100% pinot noir from 10 different crus, mostly in the Montagne de Reims; reserves only from the previous year; aged 5 years on lees; 8g/L dosage). This wine has achieved that elusive ideal of volume and finesse; the world’s best-selling rosé champagne epitomises the ultra-restraint of rosé’s finest expressions. All the more remarkable for the challenging saignée method. Its latest incarnation is a medium to full, vibrant crimson hue, singing with the personality of pinot noir in white raspberries, crunchy wild strawberries, redcurrants, pomegranates and tangy morello cherries. Ripe pinot noir is the resounding theme here, in all of its fruity, spicy and tangy glory, uniting finely managed tannin structure with salty chalk mineral texture and well-integrated ‘boiled sweets’ dosage. Five years in the deep has built texture without interrupting its primary vibrancy. Older disgorgements begin to take on balsamic notes. An unashamed saignée style to drink young, with the structural scaffolding and confidence to partner effortlessly with protein. Jamón would be perfect! (2020-2021)"
93 points Wine Spectator: "[$100 list] Fragrant wafts of smoke and spice accent the steeped raspberry and mandarin orange peel flavors of this tightly meshed rosé Champagne, which is backed by a vivid spine of mouthwatering acidity and is silky on the palate, with hints of dried herb, licorice and toasted almond playing on the finish. Drink now through 2025. (11/30/20)"
93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "As readers may already be aware, Laurent-Perrier’s Brut Rosé is made up entirely of pinot noir and is produced in the saignée method, where the wine’s color is produced by a short maceration period on the skins -- in this case from forty-eight to seventy-two hours. The new release here in the states is superb, offering up a beautifully vibrant nose of cherries, strawberries, rye bread, a very complex base of soil, rose petals and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very refined, with a lovely core, elegant mousse, crisp acids and outstanding length and grip on the focused finish. I do love this bottling!"
