Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Vintage Rosé 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: The Vintage Rosé 2002 reveals intense aromas of red and black fruits especially griotte cherries, enhanced with a touch of peppers and vanilla. These are followed by balsamic notes of liquorice and aniseed that lend the wine a certain freshness. The Vintage Rosé 2002 is distinguished by an elegance and aromatic complexity that will continue to intensify over time. Composition: The blend includes only 17 Crus, which are either Grand or Premier Crus including Verzenay, Ludes, Ay and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. 60% Pinot Noir (15% from Bouzy Vineyard) 7% Pinot Meunier 33% Chardonnay Occasion: The Vintage Rosé 2002 is ideal for serving with impressive dishes characterized by rich and powerful flavors. It could be well matched with a delicately spiced marinade of beef.

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

I was away on vacation in South Beach where I did'nt know the lay of the wineland. I was excited enough to stumble upon a store that had something other than Korbel and a dusty bottle of Dom. This was the time to try a large brand standby from a recent good year: Veuve Cliquot's 2002 rose. I waver on rose Champagne. It costs extra, but it is highly variable from brand to brand and far too often not worth the additional cost. When I first popped the cork, it gave up a nice yeasty nose that was promising. I Pour. Nice color--more salmon than pink. Bubbles were plentiful, but not terribly fine. Closer to Soda than a mousse. Certainly not a ton of fruit in this wine, (from a vintage that otherwise is ripe and forward) but Veuve's style is more engineered than clean & clear anyway. I think the key here is taste--if you are a fan of Veuve, you will probably enjoy it, but I could not help but think there are quite a few bottles of grower Champagne I would prefer for the same price.

    This is firm and tight, with strawberry, red currant and spice aromas and flavors. Balanced and elegant, but needs time for all the elements to come together.
