Veuve Clicquot : Brut Rosé

A delicate and fruity Brut Rosé champagne

The estate

Today, Veuve Clicquot has become a brand with a worldwide success. It is the story of a Champagne house whose myth was created by one woman: Madame Clicquot. A brilliant and bold woman, she successfully imposed herself in the business world and became known as "La Grande Dame de la Champagne’’, ‘’the Great Lady of Champagne". Guided by an innate sense of innovation and a perpetual quest for perfection, she invented the riddling table and marketed the first blended rosé champagne. Veuve Clicquot has turned this uncompromising requirement into her motto: "Only one quality, the finest". The Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne house was a pioneer in deciding to adorn its bottles with a yellow-orange label, the design was registered in 1877.

The vineyard

Comprising 390 hectares of land, Veuve Clicquot has one of the largest vineyards in Champagne. This vineyard boasts an exceptional quality, as it is spread over 12 out of the 17 Grands Crus and 20 out of the 44 Premiers Crus of the Champagne region.

The wine

Madame Clicquot produced the very first blended rosé champagne in 1818. Even today, this cuvée, which is the result of a rigorous selection of 50 to 60 different crus, exudes a seductive and rich aromatic palette along with a lively mouthfeel.

Vinification and ageing

Veuve Clicquot's Brut Rosé is aged in the House's chalk pits for a minimum of three years.

The blend

Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé comprises a blend that resonates with that of Brut Carte Jaune, namely 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier and 28 to 33% Chardonnay. This blend is completed by 12% of still wine vinified in red.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The NV Brut Rose is a straightforward, accessible wine to enjoy over the next year or two. With a little additional refinement in the tannins, this bottling might merit a slightly higher score. This is Lot 14009917, disgorged between December, 2006 and January, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.
