Rebecca Meir-Liebman rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

One of the most - if not the most- outstanding Champagne Rosé I have ever tried! Made by the famous Champagne house Bollinger, this Champagne is unique because of the high percentage of red wine in its blend of 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay. The harvest of 2005 was of such high quality that Bollinger decided to create a Vintage Champagne; Vintage Champagnes are only produced in outstanding years. This rosé is quite dry, with only a dosage of 7 grams per liter. You may find notes of ripe fruit, dried fig, wood, cinnamon and toasted brioche, combined with orange zest and elderflower aromas. The high percentage of red wine in its cuvée brings boldness and good structure to the wine allowing it to pair well with meat dishes, such as Veal Saltinbocca or rare to medium-rare grilled Filet Mignon.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
