Expert Reviews

"One of the best vintages since the great 2002, this is a sophisticated, fruit- and yeast- driven wine. It has a delicate touch, with its white flavours well integrated into the toasty and tangy texture. It will age for many years.” Rating 94 - Wine enthusiast- September 2012.

A very rich, classy wine with vanilla-dusted, crisp red fruits on the palate and great finesse on its long, seductive finish. This vintage will compete with the 1961 as the best rosé that Veuve Clicquot has produced since the legendary 1959; it won the much coveted Vintage Rosé Champagne Trophy at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards.Rating 19/20 - Drink to 2017 Tom Stevenson's Top 12 Rosé champagnes

As you'd expect from Veuve, this brash, toasty and bold vintage rose is a style that has plenty of grilled nuts and complex, spicy autolysis character laid across rich red fruits in convincing, forthright style. The palate's similarly bold and confident, showing plenty of ripe red fruit flavour, smooth build, and a gently toasty pastry and nut-flavoured finish. Very satisfying Champagne. Rating 93 - Nick Stock - Good Wine Guide 2013

Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

The Vintage Rosé 2004 offers a deep pink colour with highlights of ocpper and delicate, light effervescence.

Aroma/Palate

The nose, extremely elegant, at first reveals flavours of ripe red fruits that burst on the tongue, before gradually giving way to violets, lilacs and light "pastry" note. A discreet touch of ground coffee can also be distinguished. The attack is fortright and energetic.

This generous wine offers an astonishingly long and subtle finish. It is extremely complex and is distinguished by great freshness. On the palate, strong notes of fruit recall the refined nose. The finish is suprpsing in its persistence.

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.
