Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rosé 2012
In 1805, Madame Clicquot, a young widow of 27 years, took over the reins of the House founded in Reims in 1772 and became one of the first business women in history.
Audacious and visionary, she made her Champagne known to the world Know How & Craftsmanship:
For over 200 years, the House has stayed true to its motto: ‘Only one quality, the finest’ A consistency in style : complex & powerful with Pinot Noir predominance. Veuve Clicquot is the style Champagne that radiates elegance vibrancy & edge with a unique yellow signature.
Veuve Clicquot Vintage 2008 Rosé, a cuvée exclusively made of the best grapes grown in a single year, stands out for its bright pink colour and harmonious fruity freshness.
Sight: A bright colour with light copper hues. A gentle and persistent string of very delicate bubble forms, exploding on the surface.
Nose: The nose is frank, fine and pure. It begins first with the aromas of fresh red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, cherry) combined with citrus fruit fragrances (grapefruit) that match perfectly with the lightly spiced notes of cinnamon and vanilla revealed once allowed to breathe. Finally, dried fruit and brioche notes delicately add to the richness and complexity of its aromas.
Palate: The clear, taut attack moves into a more full-bodied, structured and energetic palate. A perfect reflection of the nose, its minerality reveals generous red fruit aromas from the Pinot Noir (Morello Cherry) combined with notes of slightly candid citrus fruit from the Chardonnay.
Hints of sweet pastries point to the wine's long and slow maturation on lees. Lastly, marrying with the juicy freshness of the fruit, the power of the tannins is perfectly balanced, leading to a delicate and silky finish of surprising length.
