(67% pinot noir, 26% chardonnay and 7% pinot meunier; L5111635): Bright orange-pink. Smoke- and mineral-tinged aromas of raspberry, poached pear, rose oil and sweet butter. Toasty and broad but spry, offering vibrant red fruit and blood orange flavors that pick up a refreshingly bitter edge with aeration. Closes on a spicy note, with excellent focus and slow-building minerality. The fruit for this Champagne is sourced from up to 20 different premier and grand cru villages, including Ay and Verzenay for the pinot noir and Mesnil-sur-Oger for the chardonnay.
A vintage Champagne, close to an aperitif in style, showing fine balance, delicate texture and well-knit, bright acidity. Features a pretty palate of raspberry, spiced apple, biscuit, ginger and lemon zest notes. Drink now through 2027. -AN
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.
