Vintage Champagnes

Distinctive and powerful, each Vintage is the unique expression of a single harvest chosen for its remarkable quality and loyalty to the House’s style. Vintages with exceptional qualities and unparalleled aging potential are carefully preserved for decades at the heart of Veuve Clicquot’s chalk cellars in Reims, making up the Cave Privée.

Cave Privée Rosé 1979

Budbreak occurred late in the year. Flowering was rapid for the Chardonnay vines and slightly more spread out for the Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes.
Cave Privée Rosé 1979 intro

Harvesting began on 3, 5 and 8 October depending on the different sectors. The grapes were of a very good quality, with an average alcoholic strength of over 9° GL. Acidity was slightly less than 9 g/l.

Cave Privée Rosé 1979 is a blend of 22 different Crus, all classified as Grands and Premiers Crus. It is a blend of 49% Pinot Noir, 5% Meunier and 27% Chardonnay. The addition of 19% red wine from Bouzy from our own production using grapes from our vines completed the blend.
 

Tasting notes

The palate is youthful, striking for its freshness, and the saline character that comes from our chalky terroir. The rich finish has a texture that comes from great Pinot Noir, and the bubbles are discreet.
