Champagne Veuve Cliquot Rose´

The history of Champagne Veuve Clicquot dates to the late 1700’s. Veuve Clicquot, now one of the largest Champagne Houses, was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot under the label "Clicquot". After establishing the brand throughout Europe, Russia and the United States, Philippe was joined by his son, François Clicquot, at the head of the House in 1798. Seven years later, following his untimely death, François’ young widow, Barbe Ponsardin, took over the family business at just 27 years old. The House would subsequently be renamed in her honor: ‘Veuve Clicquot’ means ‘The Widow Clicquot. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is a youthful and modernistic brand. It boasts a bright yellow-orange label that signifies joy, happiness, and the sun. It remains the most recognized label in the LVMH portfolio.

It is a blend of 52% Pinot Noir, 18% Pinot Meunier and 30% Chardonnay. The color is deep pink grapefruit. On entry the aromas are light, youthful with red fruit, cherry, strawberry puree, brioche, roasted almonds and hints of stone minerality. The palate is medium-bodied, creamy with subtle acidity that is well integrated, but adds lift and a slight tanginess. It all concludes with a vibrant and persistent finish. Drink now for immediate pleasure or cellar for three to five years
