Disgorged in May 2020 with 4.5 grams per liter dosage, the 2009 Extra Brut Rosé Premier Cru 1522 offers up lovely aromas of sweet berries, plums and mirabelles, complemented by aromas of toast and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, layered and charming, it's pillowy and enveloping, with fine depth at the core, bright acids and a chalky finish. William Kelley, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2009 Extra-Brut Cuvée 1522 Rosé is a pretty powerful, tightly wound wine. There is plenty of depth and resonance, but the dosage of 4.5 grams per liter feels a bit low-ish. I would be tempted to cellar the 2009 for a year or two to see what happens. Perhaps the wine is still recovering from its disgorgement. To be sure, most wines from this warm vintage are much more forthcoming. The blend is 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay, most of it from Philipponnat's Léon parcel in Mareuil. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: March, 2020. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
