TASTING NOTES

Appearance: In the glass, Vintage Rosé 2012 enchants with its deep rose color and copper hues.

Aroma: The pure and intense nose develops to reveal fresh aromas of red fruit, wild strawberry and blueberry.

Taste: The palate is powerful and voluminous, with an attack that is distinct and clear. It unfolds with initial aromas of luscious red fruit, strawberry and Morello cherry. Next to arrive are dense notes of noble tannins, their velvety, silky caress is the perfect counterpoint to Vintage Rosé 2012’s spicy saffron and peppery notes. Rounding out the experience is an indulgent aroma of refined pastry, with a slight touch of almond. Never one to be shy, Vintage Rosé 2012 is persistent and vivacious, with an impressively long finish that culminates in a final fresh hint of red fruit and cherry.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Begin with a rich, meaty seafood dish – we think lobster or langoustine would be the perfect shade for this rosé. Embrace the champagne’s fruitiness with succulent pink meats. Veal or duck would pair beautifully – cooked just the way you like.

ORIGIN

Reims, Champagne France. Veuve Clicquot champagne has always been a creative act, requiring unique expertise grounded in a love for Pinot Noir and the art of aging. From harvest to shipment, Veuve Clicquot is inspired by the House’s longstanding motto, “only one quality, the finest.” Madame Clicquot’s legacy shines on throughout the House with passion and optimism.

EXPERT REVIEW

Wine Spectator - 92 points A harmonious rosé, with crunchy acidity well-meshed to the lacy mousse and minerally, smoke-and-stone-laced underpinning, forming a fine frame for the flavours of white cherry an pink grapefruit zest, accented by a touch of whole-grain toast. Drink now
