DESCRIPTION

Decanter (James Button) 92

“Veuve have re-introduced partial barrel maturation with the 2008 vintage; five percent of the wines were aged in French oak casks to add seasoning and complexity to the final blend. There is a slight bronze tinge to the wine, with a subtle nose of tangerine and red berries and some oak creaminess too. The palate displays flavours of vanilla bean, mandarin and cranberry, and a really incisive finish. Well chiselled and complex, this is only in the first phase of a long life” (February, 2017)

 

View from the Cellar (John Gilman) 92

“The 2008 Rosé offers up a fine and precise bouquet of cherries, a touch of blood orange, a fine base of soil, gentle spice tones, fresh-baked bread and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and focused, with a good core, bright acids, frothy mousse and very good length and grip on the complex finish.” (May, 2017)

 

Wine Advocate (Stephen Reinhardt) 91+

“The pink-orange colored 2008 Vintage Brut Rosé (disgorged March 2015) offers a very delicate, clear and elegant bouquet with juniper flavors. Clear, elegant and fresh on the palate, this is a round and well-structured, yet still very young Rosé with fine tannins and a nice grip in the finish. This is a refreshing palate cleanser that needs food or another 10-20 years to shine. Try it with pata negra or traditional Japanese dishes.” (June, 2016)

 

Wine and Spirits 92

"The color of a pink peppercorn, this wine is almost red in its depth of fruit flavors, a lovely essence of pinot noir with stamina. It feels grand at first, sweet in its crunchy cherry fruit, but the finish is savory, fresh and lasting, narrowing to a straight and elegant line."

 

Wine Enthusiast (Roger Voss) 92

“With an attractive touch of toastiness on this ripe wine, this is balanced and very ready to drink. In the house style, it is rich with a soft character. Plenty of acidity and hints of red fruits provide a vibrant contrast. It is ready to drink.” (December, 2016)

 

Wine Spectator (Alison Napjus) 93

“A well-cut, minerally version, with a firm backbone of acidity and a lacy mousse, layered with flavors of baked currant, toast and lemon curd. Offers a racy, spiced finish. Disgorged January 2016. Drink now through 2028.” (November, 2017)

“Rich and smoky on first impression, yet this harmonious Champagne is elegant overall, with sleek acidity and a minerally underpinning deftly married to flavors of strawberry pâte de fruit, toast, mandarin orange peel and crystallized honey. Offers a lasting, vibrant finish. Disgorged March 2015. Drink now through 2028. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.” (October, 2016)
