2004 Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne
Wine & Spirits
Deep pink in color, this is a cherry-scented rosé with full pinot noir flavors. The texture is broad and round, its edges defined by pink grapefruit pith acidity. There's gentle chalkiness to the dry finish, making this appealing to drink now with salmon tartare. It should develop more depth of flavor with bottle age.
Soft and creamy, the fine texture carries flavors of black currant and wild strawberry, with hints of financier, citrus zest and smoky mineral. Very appealing for its overall finesse and finely tuned, mouthwatering acidity. Drink now through 2022.
Still very young, with the crispest of red currant fruits. There are almond and quince flavors to go with the raspberry juice acidity. At this stage, the dosage is not full integrated, showing an awkward final sweetness. Age for 4-5 years.
