Veuve Clicquot Brut Rose Champagne 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

2008 is Veuve Clicquot's first vintage Brut Rosé offering since 2004. Its blend is virtually identical to the corresponding white, but incorporates red Pinot Noir from Veuve Clicquot's grand cru vineyards in the village of Bouzy. Notes of raspberry, wild strawberry and cherry followed by a touch of dried fruits and pastry are the hallmarks of this exquisite and popular Rosé. This is the sort of wine that makes any occasion extra special.

Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, many originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champagne region and are exceptional in size and quality. As in madame Clicquot's day, bottles age in the House's vast, vaulted cellars in Reims, portions of which were constructed some 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The remarkable Madame Clicquot (1777-1866) is considered one of the first business-women of the modern era. Widowed in 1805 at the age of 27, Madame Veuve Clicquot (born Ponsardin) defied every convention of the day to take the helm of her late husband's small Champagne House. She personally supervised cellar activities and introduced innovative production techniques still used today. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied Champagne. Read less
