Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin '250yr Anniversary' Brut Rose with Gift Box
Winemaker Notes: To mark the 250th anniversary of Veuve Clicquot, the maison has released this collectible edition of its iconic Yellow Label Brut in an innovative, boundary-pushing gift box, bringing joyful sunny vibes to any occasion. Made from 50% hemp and 50% recycled paper and completely plastic-free, the fully recyclable eco gift box is finished in the instantly recognisable striking yellow hue the maison is known for.
This non-vintage Rose is the end result of a desire to create a Rose champagne with a delightfully luscious, fruit-based charm. Jacques Peters, the cellarmaster, and his team wanted a champagne that would be accessible and naturally engaging while conserving Veuve Clicquot's essential values in terms of style.
Made using 50 to 60 different crus, the cuvee is based on Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend: 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier, and 28 to 33% Chardonnay.
Wine & Spirits - "This is the same base wine as Yellow Label, with the addition of 12 percent red wine to boost the color and the wine’s depth of wild raspberry flavor. It’s Burgundian-rich, a pinot noir as a serious Champagne with complexity, muscular structure and vinous length of spicy fruit."
James Suckling - "The non-vintage edition of Veuve's ros‚ Champagne has a bright-strawberry and raspberry-fruit thread on the nose with a gently spicy edge too. The palate's big on flavor and really exuberant thanks to expressive strawberry and hints of pink grapefruit."
Wine Enthusiast- "This seems drier than its stablemate, the famous Yellow Label, and is the better for it. There is an urgent freshness here, driven by red currants and tight plum skin flavors. It is lively but full in the mouth, and shows just the right bottle age."
Wine Spectator - "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 flavors of ripe white cherry and pink grapefruit zest, accented by a touch of whole-grain toast. Drink now."
