Wine Spectator (WS) : 93 Points (2012)
Expressive flavors of dried cherry, singed orange peel and red licorice are backed by a firm spine of acidity in this racy rosé Champagne, which is tightly meshed and balanced, with the creamy mousse carrying hints of salty mineral and grilled nut on the mouthwatering finish. Disgorged October 2018. Drink now through 2032.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 93 Points (2012)
A wine with energy and grace, this shows the power of meunier in 2012. Pinot meunier makes up 23 percent of the blend, and its wild strawberry brightness is apparent in the flavors. Pinot noir provides 42 percent, and chardonnay, 35 percent. The finish darkens to black raspberry, emboldened by 13 percent red wine in the blend, the flavors lasting with a purity and freshness that should carry the wine as it ages. Richly saturated, this is a clean Champagne with drive.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2012)
Disgorged in February 2018 with five grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Extra Brut Grand Vintage Rosé bursts with expressive aromas of cherries, red berries, peaches and marzipan. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a similarly broad and fleshy profile to its white counterpart, but with more phenolic structure from the 13% still Pinot Noir in the blend, which lends it a seemingly drier, chalkier finish even though the two cuvées saw the same dosage. The more-concentrated regular Extra Brut has the edge over the Rosé, but this is a creditable effort.

Decanter (DCT) : 95 Points (2009)
Very oaky and dusty on the nose with a whiff of smoke. Medium bodied palate with soft notes of cherries and really mature strawberries; slight touch of tannins on the after taste. Impressive and harmonious finish. A real food rosé to drink with carpaccio of beef.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2009)
While initially soft, this wine then develops a crisper side that comes from the red-currant flavors. It also has some toasty touches and hints of maturity. Taken together, these elements have produced a rich wine, ripe and ready to drink.

Poderi Aldo Conterno Il Favot Langhe Nebbiolo 2016
Poderi Aldo Conterno Il Favot Langhe Nebbiolo 2016
Conterno use the youngest Nebbiolo vines (20 years old on average) from their vineyards in Bussia to produce this wine. The result is a wine with fresh and lively fruit character and elegant, lifted aromas with the characteristic robust tannins and acidity.
