92 pts.Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: May, 2004
Made from 100% Pinot Noir and disgorged October 2003, the non-vintage Brut Rose’ (which spent six years on its lees) is a dry, austere, long, medium to-full bodied rose’ that screams “serious”. Flavors of strawberries, wet stones, and tomato skins are found in this impressively endowed, structured, well-delineated effort. Consume it over the next 2–4 years.

Fruit flavors of plum, black licorice and blackberry mix with hints of smoke, toast and forest floor in this harmonious rosé, which is full-bodied and very juicy, with a spicy, lightly chalky finish. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

A vinous style, featuring forward fruit notes of black cherry coulis and crème de cassis, with a firm framework and juicy acidity backing toasted raisin bread, almond skin and grilled plum flavors. The spicy finish persists. Drink now through 2018.

A deep-hued rosé, almost garnet in color, with a fine bead and tangy acidity backing the flavors of candied black cherry, whole-grain bread, star anise, smoke and honey. Offers a well-cut, chalky finish. Disgorged December 2013. Drink now through 2019.

Like an elegant Pinot Noir, with bubbles. Has the classic cherry, spice and earth flavors of Pinot, with the lively, exuberant texture of Champagne. Shows real character and length. Drink now through 2000.

Firm and intense, like a Pinot Noir with bubbles, this rosé tastes of macerated cherries and berries, with a hint of basil or mint. A contrast to the more elegant, creamy styles. Drink now.
