Vintage Rose 2012

Vintage Rosé 2012 is the expression of a prodigious harvest, despite an extremely challenging climate.
Intro

Despite those damages which leads to a pretty modest harvest, quality is optimum revealing a great aging potential for the wines. Naturally, 2012 is declared a Veuve Clicquot Vintage and became the House’s 66th since its first vintage of 1810. The uniqueness of the Veuve Clicquot Vintage collection remains in the addition of wines aged in large oak casks, bringing strength and aromatic intensity. The Vintage Rosé 2012 blend is elaborated with 13% of red still wine, exclusively from the Pinot Noir of Bouzy.

The dominance of Pinot Noir and the wooden touch deliver structure and character, trademark of the Veuve Clicquot’s style.

Tasting notes

"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."
