2012 Moët & Chandon "Grand Vintage" Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1440178 93 points Wine Spectator

 Graphite and spice notes lace the creamed white cherry and strawberry fruit flavors of this firm and finely meshed rosé. Lacy in texture, with a minerally underpinning and accents of herb and anise on the lasting finish. Disgorged February 2018. (AN)  (12/2019)

91 points James Suckling

 A fruity and earth rosé with sliced cooked strawberries and fruit tea. Full body. More like a light red. Flavorful finish. Drink now.  (7/2019)

91 points Vinous

 Like the Blanc, the 2012 Grand Vintage Rosé is tightly wound and reticent. Bright red cherry, cranberry, rose petal, cedar, flowers, mint and crushed rocks are all laced together in this finely sculpted Champagne. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2012 for at least a few years, as it is nowhere near ready to drink. The blend is 42% Pinot Noir (of which 13% is still red Pinot), 35% Chardonnay and 23% Meunier. (AG) 91+  (7/2019)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Moet’s deeply salmon-colored 2004 Brut Rose Grand Vintage incorporates 24% Meunier and 45% Pinot Noir of which nearly a quarter was red wine. A nose of fresh red raspberry and fennel leads to a sappy, snappy, marzipan-tinged palate impression whose supportive sweetness led me to imagine a higher dosage than the mere five grams that are present; but then, this wine’s luscious sense of vivid and ripe red fruit fits the generous and warm nature of its vintage. While not especially complex – though perhaps a year or two more in bottle will lend depth – this is nonetheless impeccably balanced and irresistibly appetizing. (DS)  (11/2013)

Jancis Robinson

 42% Pinot Noir (of which 13% was still red), 35% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Meunier. Dosage 5 g/l. Quite a marked strawberry colour – Moët favour definite pinkness cf tinged white. Light nose and rather a sweet, fruity note on the front palate. Then acidity. Not as well integrated as the white version. Less subtle than the white. Quite aggressive acidity, though it all settled down a bit with time in the glass. 16+/20  (3/2019)
