This rosé, the 23rd blending, is no exception. The nutty character of a mature Champagne is there along with red fruits, intense acidity from Pinot Noir and impeccable balance at the end. The wine is ready to drink. ROGER VOSS collapse

Despite this Chardonnay is the key shareholder in the blend, its 45% outweighing near equal measures of the two Pinots. Gravitas translates on the palate to cherry fruit and spice, herbs and hints of quince and rosemary; unashamedly complex for sure, gastronomically promising without a doubt. For all the power and glory, the wine is fresh, energetic and forward, its unrivalled pedigree immediately obvious for all to behold. (Drink between 2019-2028) collapse

However, the new release is quite a bit deeper salmon in color than previous iterations, though no less elegant and refined. Chef de Cave Eric Lebel and his team at Krug utilized a bit more still pinot noir in the blend this year than in past examples, which no doubt contributes to the slightly darker hue of this release. The new edition was disgorged in the spring of 2017 and includes a blend of vintages from 2011 all the way back to 2000. Because the base year of 2011 was far from typical, fully fifty-six percent of the cuvée this year is composed of reserve wines, with the final cépages working out to be forty-five percent chardonnay, twenty-nine percent pinot noir and twenty-six percent pinot meunier. The wine is aromatically stunning, soaring from the glass in a refined blend of cherries, a touch of tangerine, smoky overtones, rose petals, a beautiful base of gently salty soil elements, lovely and almost exotic spice tones and a hint of rye toast in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and exquisitely complex, with a lovely core of fruit, great soil signature, bright, seamless acids, pinpoint bubbles and great length and grip on the classy and gently vinous finish. Outstanding juice. (Drink between 2019-2050) collapse

Although not especially complex in this release, the Rosé offers lovely immediacy and tons of pure pleasure. Crushed berries, chalk, mint and white flowers are nicely softened in this super-expressive, beautifully persistent Rosé. A few more years in bottle will only help. The 23ème is a Champagne of pure and total pleasure. This release is based on 2011, with reserve wines back to 2000. -- Antonio Galloni collapse
