The colour is a delicate pomegranate pink with very slightly orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent foam. The nose is subtle and fresh, first offering an original palette of tropical fruits (guava and lychee) and small berries (raspberries, cherries and wild strawberries) in the first instance. These are followed by rose and pomegranate notes which complete the complex, intense aromatic profile, dominated by somewhat undeveloped primary aromas. On the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The aromas of freshly picked berries are fully expressed. The balance brings together a delightful freshness and voluptuous body, expressed by an elegant bracing touch of mint and pink grapefruit. Ruinart Rosé is a truly festive champagne, which is a delight to drink throughout a meal from aperitif to dessert. It will be enhanced by thin slices of fine Italian prosciutto (San Daniele, Parma, etc.). A starter of mi-cuit salmon, or salmon prepared as a Japanese "tataki", will reveal its many facets. For a main course, it will be an admirable accompaniment for a leg of milk-fed lamb or a low temperature cooked veal fillet. At the end of the meal it will find its full expression with a berry soup enhanced with an excellent Modena balsamic vinegar.

International Wine CellarBright orange-pink. Spice-accented aromas and flavors of red berries, cherry and candied rose, with a smoky nuance building with air. Juicy and precise, with more energy and cut than last year's release. Finishes long, with very good energy, leaving spice and floral notes behind.

Wine SpectatorA pure note of wild strawberry rides the fine and creamy mousse of this mouthwatering rosé. Expressive, with flavors of ripe berry, candied ginger, pink grapefruit zest, marzipan and smoky mineral. Elegant overall. Drink now through 2020. 3,210 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Brut Rose is a pretty, understated wine graced with notable class and finesse. This is a decidedly feminine, delicate style best suited to drinking as an aperitif. Sweet berries, flowers and spices are layered into the refined, well-articulated finish. This is Lot LAGJUA4. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

Wine EnthusiastThis attractive wine is fresh and fruity, with raspberry flavors and a red cherry-skin edge of tannins. It is full and creamy, with a soft, ripe aftertaste. The bottling is ready to drink.
