RP 93 points: "The 2005 Brut Rose is a gorgeous wine blessed with compelling inner perfume, layers of subtle yet expressive fruit and phenomenal balance. Clean, chalky notes frame a precise, crystalline finish. This mid-weight Champagne can be enjoyed on its own or with food. It is a relative bargain considering the quality of what is in the glass and considering the prohibitive pricing of Cristal Rose. This is Lot L033331G100002, disgorged November, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. ||My visit to these historic cellars earlier in the year was an eye-opening experience. I spent several hours with Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon tasting through a wide range of 2009s vins claires. Readers may want to take a look at my feature on www.erobertparker.com for more on those wines. The visit was capped off by previews of the 2004 Cristal and the as-yet-unreleased Cristal Rose. Both were superb. Over the last six months the 2004 Cristal has come together beautifully and is shaping up to be a truly great, monumental Champagne. From top to bottom, this is an impressive set of wines. My only real criticism of Roederer is the estateÔÇÖs insistence on using lot numbers that resemble missile launch codes in their complexity. Surely something simpler must be possible.||Importer: Maisons Marques & Domaines USA, Inc., Oakland, CA"
