Wine & Spirits 92 points - It’s easy to fall in love with Ruinart Rose, a bright raspberry essence that’s just full-on delicious. The color of the wine is a transparent wild-strawberry pink and the flavors are tight and brisk, like crunchy-fresh fraises des bois with a slightly deeper raspberry tone. A festive wine..December/2017
Vinous 92 points - (55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay; 9 g/l dosage; LAH9V): Light orange. Sharply focused red berry and tangerine scents are complicated by suggestions of allspice and cinnamon, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Sappy and minerally on the palate, offering fresh strawberry and blood orange flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Packs a serious punch but carries no excess weight and finishes stony and very long, with echoing red berry character..Josh Raynolds, January/2015
James Suckling 92 points - Strawberry and pomegranate-infused yeasty autolysis aromas with freshly baked pastry and fresh bready notes. The palate has ripe peach fruits, strawberries and some hints of pink grapefruit. Sweetness, richness and a lively acid kick. Berry pie finish. Drink now..October/2017
Ruinart Rosé, a fine, elegant champagne with the distinctive Ruinart taste due to a high concentration of Chardonnay grapes. A beautiful color of pinkish gold. A smooth, balanced, fruity wine with plenty of body. An ideal evening aperitif. At table the finesse of this champagne will go wonderfully with the freshness of a delicious andalusian gaspacho.
Wine Spectator 92 points - A fresh and focused rose Champagne, with a satiny mousse and a subtle streak of smoke underscoring the well-knit flavors of white raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, pastry cream and candied orange zest. Drink now through 2021. -AN.November/2017
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This soft, finely structured and salmon-hued wine has an explosive mousse. Its attractive strawberry fruit is balanced by rich acidity. Ripe, mouth-filling and softly creamy, it’s ready to drink now and has a rounded aftertaste..June/2017
Bright orange-pink. Spice-accented aromas and flavors of red berries, cherry and candied rose, with a smoky nuance building with air. Juicy and precise, with more energy and cut than last year's release. Finishes long, with very good energy, leaving spice and floral notes behind.
