Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne

blog 173

Veuve Clicquot is one of those champagne labels that denotes quality. It’s one of my favourites along with Pol Roger & Bollinger – at this price however it is only for very special occasions…

Tasting notes: Notes of red fruits. Biscuity, brioche, stonefruit and almond elements on the palate. Elegant – but not overly delicate; this had bite & body! Persistent, fine mousse. Delicious!

Wine Colour – Rose
Price – £45
Current Vintage – NV
Producer – Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Grape – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Region/Country – Champagne, France.
Points – 93

Food Pairings – this worked brilliantly with smoked salmon/soured cream on blinis, and a smoked salmon mousse.
