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/'Rosé Non-Vintage (Maison) Champagne of the Year 2022,' Tom Hewson (TimAtkin.com): "2014 base, with reserves back to 2012. The Pinot Noir for this cuvée comes from both sides of the Montagne de Reims. By cold macerating it for 35-72 hours, Laurent-Perrier create one of the most distinctive and successful NV rosés of the Maisons, buzzing with cherry and red apple before a surprisingly deft, elegant palate of creamy strawberry and pale almond pastry. It threads the needle with extraction, hitting a delicious sense of grip and juiciness but never harshness or over-intensity. A prominent, recognisable wine, but one that is well worth its reputation. (Dec 2022)"
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!"

92-93 points Essi Avellan, MW: "(100% Pinot Noir). Bright salmon in colour, with orange tones, this wine is produced by the maceration method using Pinot Noirs from 10 Montagne de Reims villages, including Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Tours-sur-Marne. The beautifully expressive nose oozes Pinot Noir's sweet and spicy strawberry and blood orange fruit. Laurent-Perrier truly does master the maceration method of making rosé, achieving an amazing textural silkiness and structural tension without ever showing too much tannin or bitterness. This is truly one of Champagne's most unique premium non-vintage rosés, and ageworthy, too. I love how, with time, it starts to show a wilder side of itself, with lovely dark, spicy tones and sous-bois undernotes. (Aug 2022)"
