94 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Charles Heidsieck’s 2006 Brut Rosé (with 10% Pinot Noir red wine) has been launched before the 2005. Disgorged at the end of 2014, the wine offers a delicate and intense wild strawberry flavor with some lovely spicy aromas on the nose. Ample, full and round, this is a lovely matured Rosé with a super intense and aromatic Pinot character (sweet cherries, red berries). The finish underlines the great complexity, purity and finesse of this vinous Rosé. There are cherry aromas again in the long aftertaste. An impressive Rosé.
94 Points James Suckling
A pale hue in the glass. This has a savory nose that delivers a very nicely struck toasty edge with chalky pastry and faint red fruits. The palate’s sophisticated fine texture is mesmerizing. This really dances, leaving a trail of red berry fruits in its wake, through to a long, pure and fresh, spicy finish.
94 Points Wine Spectator
This focused rosé Champagne offers a mousse with the texture of raw silk. Which swathes the firm frame in layers of roasted hazelnut, baked peach, toasted brioche and crème de cassis flavors. With a rich and smoky underpinning and accents of candied kumquat, espresso and ground ginger and cumin that expand on the finish. Drink now through 2030.
93 Points Wine Enthusiast
This is a pale-colored wine with a finely wrought texture and great fruit. It is tight and mineral on the one hand, but balanced with the crispest red-currant flavors that offer a bright line in acidity. Delicious hints of age round out the final fresh aftertaste.
92 Points Wine & Spirits
The brisk focus of fruit grown in limestone gives this wine’s pinot noir depths of fruit a firm shape and brash tension. Meanwhile, the richness of the wine makes it soft to the touch. Broad, zesty, firm and lasting, this is built to age.
