August 12, 2014 - - Pink color and aromas of apple, lemon and licorice anise. It's balanced and has flavours of strawberry, honey and violet with a medium/full body. Polished texture with a medium finish - I have had this Champagne many times and I truly enjoy it. It's always a winner with friends and has hardly disappointed. Matches well with grilled chicken or shrimp. My take is this is wonderful Rose Champagne and glad to have lots.
February 5, 2014 - This seems more the product of a classroom exercise or laboratory experiment than it does a vineyard. Granted, it's got nerve, and focused energy, but perhaps too focused and too nervy. Which is to say there's nothing classic, or traditional about this; it seems forced. Notwithstanding all of that, it's a bright, somewhat mineral driven, cava-esque aperitif wine. Absent the complexity that lees, toast, less sterile fruit, and depth might bring to the table, what we have here is an enjoyable $35 sparkler. 12,0% abv

December 2, 2013 - 雖然是Champagne Barons de Rothschild中最入門的酒款，也採取高比例的Chardonnay達到60%，也和Blanc de Blancs一樣使用40% 老酒（reserve wine），陳年時間為三年。這和其他名廠的入門級Brut相較，的確屬於高比例Chardonnay，這款香檳的香氣有類似Blanc de Blancs所具有的花香，另外帶有淡淡的酵母香氣，氣泡非常活躍，口感上以青蘋果為主，有著很好的酸度與力道，可以感受到Chardonnay的影響力，結構不錯，尾韻頗長，毫無苦味。

November 30, 2013 - Sunset Corners Champagne Tasting (Miami, FL): This bottle might have been an aberration, but it was only OK and nothing exceptional. At a price over $100 I would expect more. Flavors were very light.
