Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne is a perfectly pink version of the brand’s classic, yellow-labelled Champagne, perhaps the most famous bubbly in the world. You can always expect top-of-the-line luxury with Veuve Clicquot on the label, and if you’re up for something a bit different, Rose Champagne is the way to go.
Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne is made using 50 to 60 different crus, the base cuvee of which consists of the brand’s Brut Yellow Label traditional blend of 48% Pinot Noir, 13 to 18% Meunier, and 25 to 29% Chardonnay grapes. The reserve wines can be up to 9 years old each, and kept separately depending on when they were each produced. To properly blend Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne, 12% red wine made with red grapes is added for flavour, colour, and balance. This gorgeous rose is coppery orange in colour, with effervescent aromas of strawberry, red fruits, biscuity notes, dried fruits, and Viennese pastries.
These same notes are even more vibrant on the palate, opening up into sweet cherries and crumbly dry biscuits, balanced with wild red strawberries at their ripest. It’s refreshing and sweet and vivacious, the perfect rose to pop open when there is something special to be celebrated. But the best part of Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne is its ability to turn any event into a special occasion, which means it’s delicious with a variety of food pairings. Serve up alongside red fruits and cheeses, or with tuna, beef carpaccio, duck, and tomatoes.
Veuve Clicquot Rosé is blended to include a particularly high percentage of reserve wines which ensures the consistency of the house style. This blend is completed with 12% of red wine from vineyards in the Montagne de Reims area, using Pinot Noir grapes specially raised and selected to give a marvellous balance to the rosé.
Founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot, the house was later taken over by his widow Madame Clicquot at the age of 27 in 1810. Through determination, intuition and acumen Madame Clicquot not only created the first recorded vintage in the champagne region but built up the Veuve Clicquot property to make it one of the foremost vineyards in all of Champagne.
Produced in Champagne, a small wine producing region in the northeast of France. Maison Veuve Clicquot is located in Reims, the largest city in the Champagne province.
