Krug Rose Brut Champagne NV / 750 ml.

Item#: 72118

SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2021
A mouthwatering rosé that wraps a racy spine of acidity in the plushly creamy, cashmere-like mousse, offering a fine frame for the rich and finely meshed range of flavors, with baked raspberry, passion fruit and Mandarin orange peel fruit accented by chopped hazelnut, fleur de sel, candied ginger and lime blossom notes that echo for days on the vivid finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Disgorged autumn 2019. Drink now through 2030.
WS9696 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
The best bottle of Krug Rosé we’ve tasted in some time, this is a glorious pinot noir, cloud-like in its raspberry and forest floor scents. It follows a chalk line of flavor, seamless and linear while the wine rolls and tumbles in precisely choreographed length. Delicate pink heaven in a glass.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
Aromatic, with orchard blossom, ginger and kumquat hints, this vibrant rosé shows a beautiful marriage of intense acidity and flavor range, allowing notes of peach skin, blood orange granita, toasted coconut and Marcona almond to play and expand on the palate as they ride the lovely, lacy mousse. Offers a lasting, racy finish. Disgorged Spring 2016. Drink now through 2025.
ST9595 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2000
Pale copper-orange. Extraordinary, Chambolle-like nose hints at wild strawberry, coconut, lanolin, nut skin and Christmas spices. Very fine mousse. Extremely rich but very dry, with complex but subtle flavors of strawberry, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and smoke. Bright, harmonious acidity. Very dry but clinging and penetrating on the aftertaste. Consistent with Krug’s other releases, this utterly singular Champagne is more wine than rosé.
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2019
The NV Rosé 22ème Edition captures all the best of the Krug house style. Wonderfully fresh and vibrant, with a classic hint of reduction, the 22ème is simply pristine. The Krug Rosé has typically been a Champagne of freshness and tension. That is very much the case here. Readers should expect a crystalline, taut Rosé full of citrus, white flowers chalk and red berry fruit, all supported by veins of salivating minerality and acidity. This is such a compelling and alluring Rosé. This release is based on 2010, with reserve wines back to 2005, a relatively compact range of vintages. I loved it.
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2010
The beauty of Krug’s rosé is the sense of bottle age, of that extra richness. That means the wine is not just the sum of its delicious red berry fruits. It’s also the way the wine is rounded out, filled with secondary flavors, toast and almonds and a taut minerality. The aftertaste is taut, dry, seamless, complex.

From the Producer

At first sight, its subtle pale pink colour holds a promise of elegance. On the nose, aromas of rose hips, cured ham, mulberries, redcurrant, peony, pepper & pink grapefruit. On the palate, delicate flavours of honey, citrus & dried fruit with a long finish, enhanced by its fine bubbles.

Where It's From

Region / Champagne

View more wines from Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Ruinart Rose Champagne NV / 750 ml.

NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 43170

SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2021
A classy rosé that glides across the palate, with flavors of raspberry coulis, yellow peach, chamomile and blanched almond that expand on the creamy mousse and linger on the lightly spiced finish, powered by mouthwatering acidity. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2026.
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
A gorgeous rosé in a rich, vinous style, this shows a satiny mousse and well-honed acidity, which buoy a detailed range of macerated raspberry fruit, dried apricot, grated ginger, graphite and chopped roasted almond flavors. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2025. (Alison Napjus)
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
This lovely rosé Champagne is harmonious and bright, featuring sleek acidity layered with the lacy mousse and an expressive range of white peach, ripe raspberry and pickled ginger flavors, with hints of smoke and biscuit. Elegant. Drink now through 2023.
WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
This deep pink rosé starts off from a delicate scent of spice and roses, strawberries and the freshly turned earth of a garden. It grows more powerful and grand with air, building fresh raspberry pinot vinosity, a fragrant essence of limestone and fruit that lasts.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2020
In the generous style that is Ruinart, the wine is full with red fruits that are mouthfilling and rich. At the same time, there is a crisp streak of mineral texture that cuts through the wine to give a bright aftertaste. Drink this beautifully balanced Champagne now.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2017
This soft, finely structured and salmon-hued wine has an explosive mousse. Its attractive strawberry fruit is balanced by rich acidity. Ripe, mouth-filling and softly creamy, it’s ready to drink now and has a rounded aftertaste.
RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
The NV Brut Rosé is made in a similarly elegant and refined style, even though it isn’t quite as expressive as the Blanc de Blancs at the outset. With time in the glass the Pinot qualities come through with greater focus. The NV Rosé offers excellent length and a polished personality in the signature Ruinart style. This is Lot: LAD7ZCA, disgorged July, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2011.

SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2018
A well-cut and lacy Champagne in an elegant, aperitif style, with hints of chalk and graphite underscoring the lively Honeycrisp apple, cherry and lemon curd flavors. Offers a sleek, minerally finish. Drink now through 2021.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2001
Red fruit character comes forward in the aroma and initial flavors, enriching the taste and filling out the smoky complexity. There’s a sweetness to that fruit balanced by a chalkiness, completely Champagne. Yellow Label is refined, super non-vintage Brut.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
A full-bodied Champagne, this has been enriched by reserve wines to add depth and smoky lees intensity to its brisk, youthful elements. It’s a satisfying Brut to serve with poached prawns.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2013
One of the most familiar of Champagnes, the Yellow Label is finely made — a fruity while structured wine. It has both fresh and fragrant fruit as well as richness, a soft, creamy texture and bright acidity. There is no sense in bottle aging here — drink this wine because of its crispness.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
A firm, fresh version, with the lively bead carrying flavors of white cherry, grilled nut, orange curd and smoke. Creamy finish. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 1997
The quality of this non-vintage blend is impressive, from it integrated Champagne scent to its creamy texture that carries aromas and flavors of green apples, white flowers, and fine minerality. It all comes together in the finish, where the opulent, pillowy texture meets the crispness of the mousse and light acidity.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2007
Pale in color, with a strong influence of red fruit in the aromas, this is blended trio a rich style. The texture is plush, the fruit sweet yet balanced by a robust architecture so it finishes clean. A generous wine for aperitifs or to serve with roast fish.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2011
There’s a tight, floral raspberry essence at the center of this wine, its fruitiness held by brisk, flinty acidity that keeps the finish mouthwatering. A firm wine for poached salmon.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2004
Cliquot’s Yellow Label is consistently one of the best non-vintage Bruts from the major houses in Champagne. The current release bristles with fresh apple flavor, with the scent of heirloom apples off the tree. That flavor runs straight through the wine, savory and clean, with a firmness for boudin blanc with roast apples.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2005
Founded by Francois Clicquot in 1772, Veuve Clicquot reached its first pinnacle of fame with the widow Nicole-Barbe Clicquot, who scouted out some impressive vineyard sites during the 19th century. Jacques Peters, who is now in charge of the estate, crafts one of Champagne’s best nonvintage Bruts by enriching the Yellow Label with up to 40 percent of older wines from the firm’s reserve stock. Nutty scents of yeast develop into chalkier mineral flavors as the wine opens with air. It has a fresh scent of narcissus to balance the more mature tones of its reserve wines. It’s rich enough for food, but also easy to enjoy on its own.
RP8787 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
The NV Brut offers up attractive notes of smoke, tar, rich ripe pears and flowers in a medium to full-bodied style. There is a good measure of persistence, although the wine could use a little more polish on the finish. This is Lot 14009913, disgorged between December, 2007 and January, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.
ST8787 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2011
Bright yellow-gold. Poached pear and candied citrus fruits on the nose, which shows notes of spun sugar and toffee. Sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors are slightly cloying and loose-knit, with slow-mounting spiciness. Finishes on a warm note, with decent length and a suggestion of candied orange.

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2010
Always a rich non-vintage, this latest bottling doesn’t disappoint expectations. It has a rich, biscuity character, hints of toast along with pure citrus and fresh apricots. It is ripe, generous, to be drunk with food.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
A graceful Champagne, with flavors of black cherry, Asian pear, toast point and salted almond dancing across the palate. Bright and buoyant, with a fine, lacy mousse and delicate notes of lime blossom, ground coffee and exotic spices playing on the finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Drink now. 15,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2018
Bright, almost crunchy acidity and the finely detailed mousse carry an expressive mix of poached apricot and cherry fruit, toast point, orange peel and ground ginger flavors in this firm, focused Champagne, with a graphite-laced, minerally finish. Drink now through 2022. 12,000 cases imported.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
The NV Brut Special Cuvée opens with elegant, well-delineated aromas of honey, brioche, roasted nuts, orange zest, flowers and peaches, of which appear on the palate in a classy, finessed expression of the house style. This is an especially refined and delicious NV Champagne. The Special Cuvée is roughly 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier (2004, 2003) sourced from a variety of vineyards. Bollinger adds 5–10% of reserve wines (in this case from 1995 and 1996, aged in magnums) which gives this offering its lovely complexity. The dosage is 7–9 grams per liter. This is Lot: 807704, disgorged towards the end of 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2012.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
At every turn of flavor, barrel-fermented base wines add opulence to this Champagne with scents of apple wood, ginger and mustard seed balancing the youthful fruit. The flavors buzz with acidity and richness, a contrast of green apple with broader notes of baked apple; the texture is creamy, the finish completely clean. The wine’s structure is substantial enough to serve with sliced, seared beef filet at a holiday party.
ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2005
Light gold color with a strong mousse. Classic Bollinger aromas of poached pear, caramel apple and toasted bread, lifted by a bright hint of lime. Full and rich on the palate, held up by good acids. The notes of apple, pear and toast repeat in the mouth. Finishes with flavors of singed apples and pears.

Item #: 91648

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, September 2, 2019
Darker color. Lots of fruit and a creamy texture with cooked apples and cherries and strawberry undertones. Medium to full body. Delicious finish that is dry and fruity. Drink now.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
Based on the Brut Reserve, with the addition of red wines largely produced in-house (from sites including Les Riceys), the latest release of Taittinger’s NV Brut Prestige Rosé is showing very well, bursting with aromas of raspberries, red berries, brioche, rose petals and blood orange. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, broad and comparatively textural, with good depth at the core and a chalky, gently phenolic and distinctly sapid finish.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2019
Dried and macerated raspberry and cherry fruit flavors are accented by a thread of aromatic spice, smoke-tinged toasted brioche notes and chalky mineral scents in this fresh and focused rosé, with a fine, satiny mousse. Drink now through 2022. 1,800 cases imported.

SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2014
Rich, with smoky hints of roasted almond and toasted brioche, this crystalline Champagne offers a finely detailed mousse that carries the firm, citrusy acidity and flavors of patisserie apple, spun honey and tangy black cherry, accented by subtle, aromatic hints of ground cumin and clove, bergamot and chamomile. Disgorged August 2013. Drink now through 2027. (Alison Napjus)
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2016
This mouthwatering Champagne shows a lovely sense of finesse, with firm acidity deftly married to a rich profile of crème de cassis, toasted brioche and lime blossom, accented by hints of café au lait, singed orange peel and exotic spice. Long and plush on the finish. Disgorged 2014. Drink now through 2024.
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2010
With its minimum of six years’ bottle aging, this is a beautifully integrated, mature wine. It has a wonderful toast character, layered over sliced pears and ripe acidity. With its complex poise between lightness and richness, this remains an intensely impressive wine.
ST9494 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2012
Bright yellow-gold. Expressive, toasty bouquet of poached pear, white peach and orange zest, with toasted nut and anise nuances adding complexity. Dry and focused on the palate, offering ripe orchard fruit, buttered toast and ginger flavors that gain weight with air. Shows a suave blend of richness and tension, finishing with excellent clarity and lingering smoke, nut and gingerbread flavors. I’ll bet that this Champagne will be even better with another five to ten years of bottle age.
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Dec 2005
Oddly, the most consistent Krug wine I have been tasting lately is their non-vintage Brut Grand Cuvée, a big, boldly styled Champagne with smoky, earthy, pear, apple, and spicy aromas as well as flavors, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth.
WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
Substantial, complex and heady, this current release of Grande Cuvée is in a constant state of change. Its flavors range from dark fruit to bright, sunny citrus, from nutty and pleasantly bitter to creamy and sweet. It carries electricity through the mineral resonance of its flavors. Masterfully blended.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
The NV Brut Grand Cuvée offers up attractive suggestions of pears, quince, spice, brioche and minerals. As is often the case here, the Grand Cuvée reveals notable elegance and finesse. The use of reserve wines in the blend gives this wine an unusual level of complexity. Readers should expect a fair amount of bottle variation, something I myself have encountered with some frequency over the years. Some bottles can be fantastic, others less so. Although the Grand Cuvée is a good introduction to the Krug house style, I find it increasingly difficult to get excited about this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2011.

SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2021
A mouthwatering rosé that wraps a racy spine of acidity in the plushly creamy, cashmere-like mousse, offering a fine frame for the rich and finely meshed range of flavors, with baked raspberry, passion fruit and Mandarin orange peel fruit accented by chopped hazelnut, fleur de sel, candied ginger and lime blossom notes that echo for days on the vivid finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Disgorged autumn 2019. Drink now through 2030.
WS9696 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
The best bottle of Krug Rosé we’ve tasted in some time, this is a glorious pinot noir, cloud-like in its raspberry and forest floor scents. It follows a chalk line of flavor, seamless and linear while the wine rolls and tumbles in precisely choreographed length. Delicate pink heaven in a glass.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
Aromatic, with orchard blossom, ginger and kumquat hints, this vibrant rosé shows a beautiful marriage of intense acidity and flavor range, allowing notes of peach skin, blood orange granita, toasted coconut and Marcona almond to play and expand on the palate as they ride the lovely, lacy mousse. Offers a lasting, racy finish. Disgorged Spring 2016. Drink now through 2025.
ST9595 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2000
Pale copper-orange. Extraordinary, Chambolle-like nose hints at wild strawberry, coconut, lanolin, nut skin and Christmas spices. Very fine mousse. Extremely rich but very dry, with complex but subtle flavors of strawberry, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and smoke. Bright, harmonious acidity. Very dry but clinging and penetrating on the aftertaste. Consistent with Krug’s other releases, this utterly singular Champagne is more wine than rosé.

Readers should expect a crystalline, taut Rosé full of citrus, white flowers chalk and red berry fruit, all supported by veins of salivating minerality and acidity. This is such a compelling and alluring Rosé. This release is based on 2010, with reserve wines back to 2005, a relatively compact range of vintages. I loved it.

The beauty of Krug’s rosé is the sense of bottle age, of that extra richness. That means the wine is not just the sum of its delicious red berry fruits. It’s also the way the wine is rounded out, filled with secondary flavors, toast and almonds and a taut minerality. The aftertaste is taut, dry, seamless, complex.
