Wine Spectator 92 points - Sleek and mouthwatering, with spice and sea salt notes underscoring flavors of white raspberry, biscuit, candied ginger and orange zest. Refined and racy. Drink now through 2023. 2,000 cases imported.-AN  (Nov 30 2013)

Vinous 93 points - (62% Pinot Noir and 38% Chardonnay, all from estate fruit; 9 g/l dosage): Light orange-pink. A sexy, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh strawberry, blood orange and sweet butter, with a chalky mineral nuance coming up with air. Shows excellent clarity and tension on the palate, displaying sappy red berry and citrus fruit flavors and a hint of rose pastille. Puts on weight with air and finishes silky and long, with resonating stoniness and strong spicy cut. -- Josh Raynolds  (Dec 2014)

Wine Advocate 91 points - In tasting Roederer’s 2008 Brut Rose, I am certainly reminded of the belief stated in their press releases that “a great rose Champagne must be made from very ripe grapes,” which, they go on to explain, is the reason why this cuvee is always predominantly informed by the steep, shallow-soiled, south-facing, waterside slopes of Cumieres. Certainly what has been extracted from the two-thirds Pinot here - colored via saignee - is an essence of ripe, juicy fresh red currant and red raspberry laced with lemon and orange rinds and perfectly set off by close to ten grams of residual sugar. A faintly sweaty tang and subtle suffusion of chalk add interest - and slight grain of tannin invigoration - to a lusciously refreshing but still very much fruit-dominated finish. I wouldn’t want to rule out some additional depth of flavor emerging over the next couple of years, but it would be a shame to miss out on this cuvee in its exuberantly fresh-fruited youth.  (Nov 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Still young and fruity, this is a wine with impressive potential. For now, enjoy the palest of rose colors, bright red fruits, and crisp and lively acidity. In the next several years, this will deepen and mellow, so keep and don’t drink until 2017. - Cellar Selection (Dec 2013)
