The house of Clicquot was founded in 1772, but owes its current fame to the founder’s remarkable daughter-in-law, Nicole barbe Clicquot. Widowed in 1805, she developed the business both technically and commercially. In 1816 she invented the method by which, to this day, all champagne is clarified. To protect the house from the imitations this spawned, she introduced the famous yellow label by which its wine is recognised around the world.
Veuve Cliquot Grandé Dame Rosé must be amongst the greatest rosé champagnes ever made. Its mousse is fine and long-lasting and its quality and distinction of this vintage are expressed in the intense, elegant nose. Notes of raspberry and strawberry combine with toasted aromas to complement each other to perfection, bestowing an unforgettable bouquet to this wine. The palate then confirms the complexity of the nose, leading to an exceedingly harmonious finish.
