Veuve Clicquot Rosé

Cuvee: Rosé
Vintage: Multi-Vintage

The Rosé non Vintage is a strong feature in the portfolio of Veuve Clicquot, as the the House was the first to sign a bottle of champagne rosé as far back as 1775 and finding its own way of producing it years later, in 1818, by macerating black grapes in white wine to create the Rosé Veuve Clicquot. Based on the Yellow Label Blend, the Rosé is elegant and fruity.

Blending

Made using grapes from 50 to 60 different villages, Veuve Clicquot Rosé is based on Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend:

Pinot Noir dominates (50 to 55%), ensuring the intensity of the Clicquot style.

Chardonnay (28 to 33%) lends finesse and elegance.

Pinot Meunier (15 to 20%) rounds out the blend.

Priceless reserve wines (from 25% to 35%, sometimes as much as 40%), both white and red, ensure the continuity of the House style. It is completed with approximately 12% of red wine using black grapes especially raised and selected to give a marvelous balance to this Rosé.

Dosage: 10 g/l

Tasting Notes

Notes of raspberry, wild strawberry and cherry predominate, followed by a touch of dried fruits and pastry. In the mouth, the attack is powerful, leaving behind a harmony of fruits. The  wine offers balance and intensity.

Eye: Luminous color with radiant rose accents. Fine mousse of bubbles.

Nose: Initial aromas of fresh red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry, cherry and blackberry) leading to dried fruits and biscuit notes (almonds, apricots and brioche)

Palate:  The fresh first impression is followed by a fruity harmonious sensation. 

Food pairing

Ideal as an aperitif.
