Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé
|Region||France, Champagne, Reims|
Coppery-orange color. Expressive aromas of strawberry and very ripe wild strawberries. A full-bodied, structured, vinous palate which stays fresh. Length and character define this champagne.
Made using 50 to 60 different crus, and 30 to 45% of Reserve wines, the cuvée is based on Yellow Label’s traditional blend: the Pinot Noir predominance (50-55%) provides the structure that is so typically Veuve Clicquot, while Chardonnay (28-33%) adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and a touch of Meunier (15-20%) rounds out the blend.
The blend is then completed with 12% of still red wine using red grapes, providing fruitiness. The long period of aging in our Crayères (3 years minimum for Rosé) lends silkiness to the Champagne.
A bright, balanced rosé, with a pleasing touch of viscosity to the creamy mousse as this carries a delicate range of baked strawberry, toast point, mandarin orange peel and candied ginger flavors. Reveals hints of oyster shell and smoke on the finish. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now.
