93 Points, Tasting Panel - Rich rose color with
ltos of lively raspberry and lovely texture; elegant, racy, seamless and long.
92 Points, James Suckling - The toasty signature of the house fuses nicely with bright red fruits on the nose. The palate delivers an eerily accurate strawberry fruit flavor, with tartness, too. Extremely attractive style.
91 Points, Wine Spectator - Rich hints of pastry cream and smoky mineral underscore flavors of strawberry preserves, orange zest and ground ginger in this lightly mouthwatering rosé Champagne. Well-balanced, with a fresh finish.
91 Points, Wine & Spirits - Best Buy. This blend is mostly Pinot Noir and Meunier, including 10 percent red wine for color. Chardonnay accounts for 10 to 20 percent, including a portion of reserve wines that may be providing the oceanic, oyster-shell notes that bring to mind Champagne's
Kimmeridgean limestone. This is broad and
loose up front, with fruity scents of orange and pomegranate. Then the wine keeps buzzing with brisk acidity, tightening up and extending the flavors with energy. An impressive release of Imperial.
Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial displays a pink color with amber highlights. Lively and intense, the bouquet exudes red fruits (wild strawberry, raspberry, cherry) with floral nuances of rose and a slight hint of pepper. On the palate, the wine shows a juicy intensity of berries (strawberry, raspberry, red currant) rounded out by the fleshiness and firmness of peach and the freshness of a subtle note of mint.
