Founded in 1772, the Veuve Clicquot House has since lived by its motto, "Only one quality, the finest". It was actually Madame Clicquot herself who created the very first blended rosé in the Champagne region. Exactly 200 years ago, in 1818, she broke with the accepted practice of using an elderberry-based preparation and instead blended in some of her fine Bouzy reds with her classic champagne. The result was the world’s first blended rosé, the Veuve Clicquot Rosé.
Once more, Madame Clicquot was leading the way and changing the rules. And she could only do that thanks to the exceptional quality of her red wines, coming from sought-after vineyards. The secret was, and is, in the blend. The cuvée is based on the traditional Yellow Label blend (50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20 % Meunier, 28 to 33 % Chardonnay), completed with 12% of red wine using red grapes especially raised and selected to bring strength and aromatic intensity.
The result is a burst of red fruits, copper-hued and full-bodied rosé of character. Veuve Clicquot Rosé is a true symbol of Madame Clicquot's ingenious and audacious spirit. The blend includes reserve wines (30-45%) which ensure the consistency of the House style, year on year.
On the nose: fresh red fruits (raspberry, wild strawberry, cherry, blackberry) leading to biscuity notes (almonds, apricots and brioche).
On the palate: full bodied and deliciously fruity, with intense flavors of juicy ripe strawberries and cherries. A burst of red fruits.
