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 surprising in its persistence.

"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.

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