Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1021493 91 points Wine Spectator

 Bright and expressive, with mouthwatering acidity and refined texture, layered with black cherry, spiced plum, almond skin, honey and candied ginger notes. Shows lovely balance, offering a lasting finish of smoky mineral. Drink now through 2020.  (11/ 2013)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 A whimsical play on fruit and spice, this is delicate enough to hint at an orange blossom scent and meaty enough to serve with cured sausages. It bristles with acidity over red fruit, lasting on heady complexity.  (12/ 2013)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a beautiful, full rosé that is rich and shows a fine balance between acidity and fruitiness. This bottling is also mature with toastiness coming through, giving a softer, rounder character. There is weight, and great acidity on the finish.  (12/ 2013)

Jancis Robinson

 Winemaker Dominique Demarville has been investing considerably in red wine production facilities. Confident pale rose colour. Very racy, crackling, pacey wine with an attractively refreshing green streak. I tasted this wine immediately after Dom Pérignon Rosé 2003 and it withstood the comparison well, albeit in a completely different style and considerably more advanced in its evolution. There is lovely energy to this wine which certainly could be enjoyed without food,  (6/ 2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light, bright orange. Fresh redcurrant and strawberry aromas are complemented by notes of orange zest and anise. Brisk, mineral-accented red fruit flavors are slightly pinched but gain depth with air. Finishes with a bitter blood orange quality and firm grip.  (12/ 2012)

K&L Notes

The non-vintage rosé from Clicquot is made using grapes from 50 to 60 different villages, its structure based on Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend, which is 50-55% Pinot Noir, 15-20% Pinot Meunier and 28-33% Chardonnay. The blend includes a high percentage of "reserve wines" originating from several harvests of the past. It is completed with approximately 12% of red wine using black grapes from the village of Bouzy.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
