Overview

As the "pink" expression of Brut Carte Jaune, Veuve Clicquot Rosé share the same structure:

To complete this base, the Cellar Master adds a blend of red wines sourced from selected black grapes to ensure the marvellous balance of this unique Rosé wine.

  • Pinot Noir dominates (50 - 55%), ensuring the intensity of the Clicquot style.
  • Chardonnay (28 to 33%) lends finesse and elegance.
  • Pinot Meunier (15 to 20%) rounds out the blend.
  • Priceless reserve wines (from 25% to 35%, sometimes as much as 40%), both white and red, ensure the continuity of the House Style.

Expert Reviews

"The impression here is elegant overall, but there's a firm backbone of acidity that's finely meshed with the delicate range of flavours, including white raspberry, spiced plum, biscuitt, pink grapefruit zest and a base note of smoky minerality. Drink now through 2017. Rating 90 - Wine Spectator

Coppery-orange colour. An expressive nose with aromas of strawberry and very ripe wild strawberries. A full-bodied, structured, vinous palate which stays fresh. Length and character define this champagne. Rating 90 - Gilbert and Gaillard

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Champagne house as famous for its eponymous founder, the first great champagne widow (veuve in French), as for its wines. Nicole Barbe Ponsardin (1777–1866) married François Clicquot, an owner of Champagne vineyards, in 1798. The wedding took place in a Champagne cellar as churches were not yet reconsecrated following the French Revolution. François Clicquot died in 1805, leaving Mme Clicquot in charge of the company, which she renamed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin. The widow steered the house carefully through the turbulent years of the First and Second Empires, defying Napoleon's blockades to ship the wine to Russia, and finding an export market in virtually every European court. 'La Grande Dame' is credited with inventing the riddling process called remuage, and adapting a piece of her own furniture into the first riddling table for that purpose. She devised the famous yellow label, still used for the non-vintage wine. On her death, the company passed to her former chief partner, another shrewd businessman, Édouard Werlé, and the house remained in the hands of the Werlé family until in 1987 it became part of the Moët Hennessy-Louis Vuitton group. The house style is based on Pinot Noir grapes and, in particular, those grown at Bouzy, where the house has large holdings. La Grande Dame is Clicquot's prestige cuvée, named, of course, after the widow. In 1990, the Champagne house purchased a majority stake in the western australian winery Cape Mentelle and its New Zealand subsidiary cloudy bay, completing the purchase in 2000.
