This is a beautiful, full rose that is rich and shows a fine balance between acidity and fruitiness. This bottling is also mature with toastiness coming through, giving a softer, rounder character. There is weight, and great acidity on the finish.
(50% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 20% pinot meunier; LLAJCD05842): Light, bright orange. Fresh redcurrant and strawberry aromas are complemented by notes of orange zest and anise. Brisk, mineral-accented red fruit flavors are slightly pinched but gain depth with air. Finishes with a bitter blood orange quality and firm grip.
Fresh and creamy in texture, this offers a lightly smoky overtone to the flavors of strawberry tart, pastry cream, grated coconut and ground spice. Drink now through 2018. -AN
Wine Maker Notes
90 Points Wine & Spirits: "A beautiful pinot noir simple and lovely in its quiet strawberry fruit. This rose has the same mouthfilling presence as the Yellow Label Brut sweet in the middle brisk and clean at the end."
Just three years following its foundation, the House of Clicquot began illustrating.its innovative spirit in 1775 by signing the very first bottle of rosé in the history of Champagne.
In 1818, the House broke away from other rosés produced by macerating black grapes in white wine, and created the Rosé Veuve Clicquot by blending red wines with white wines.
Elegant and fruity, this wine frees the senses, charms the eye and ravishes the palate. Proudly bearing the imperial red signature of Madame Clicquot,
it promises moments of sheer pleasure.
