Each Cuvee is true to the Veuve Clicquot style and spirit, faithfully maintained from the time when Madame Clicquot was running the House under the motto, ”Only one quality, the finest”. Created with a majority of Pinot Noir in the blend, the Veuve Clicquot Champagne style is noted for a firm structure, full-bodied texture and rich aromas.
Veuve Clicquot Brut Rose Champagne ensures the consistency of the House style: an intense and elegant champagne with a delightfully luscious, fruit-based charm. Veuve Clicquot Brut Rose Champagne has an intense and elegant nose. Notes of raspberry, wild strawberry and cherry predominate, followed by a touch of dried fruits and pastry. On the palate, the attack is powerful, leaving behind a harmony of fruits. Elegant and sensual, the Rose offers exceptional balance and surprising intensity.
Wine Spectator 91 points – This creamy Champagne shows fine balance, along with vibrant acidity that provides a juicy frame for the ripe strawberry, ground ginger and white peach flavors. Zesty finish. Drink now through 2020.
James Suckling 92 points – Clicquot do rose well, and this marries the toasty autolytic richness of the house with fresh and more vibrant peach, strawberry and light cherry fruit aromas and flavors. The palate has succulent, juicy appeal, with very subtle pastry and cream at the finish. Drink now.
