Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rosé 2004 Champagne
This award-winning vintage Rosé Champagne by the infamous house of Veuve Clicquot is an absolute treat for Rosé fizz enthusiasts.
‘A very rich, classy wine with vanilla-dusted, crisp red fruits on the palate and great finesse on its long, seductive finish. This vintage will compete with the 1961 as the best rosé that Veuve Clicquot has produced since the legendary 1959; it won the much coveted Vintage Rosé Champagne Trophy at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards.’ Decanter (2015)
Madame Clicquot created the first blended Rosé in 1818 by adding some red wine to Yellow Label champagne. The result was Veuve Clicquot Rosé, a fruity and full-bodied expression of the Veuve Clicquot style. Today, the Rosé is made using 50 to 60 different crus, the cuvée is based on Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend, 44 to 48 % Pinot Noir, 13 to 18 % Meunier, 25 to 29 % Chardonnay, resulting in an elegant and complex Champagne.
As with any great vintage Champagne, this Rosé is just perfect on its own or, if you’re looking to match with food, try it with tuna, beef carpaccio, duck, red fruits or tomato based dishes.
‘Coppery-orange colour. Expressive aromas of strawberry and very ripe wild strawberries. A full-bodied, structured, vinous palate which stays fresh. Length and character define this champagne.’ Gilbert & Gaillard
