The vintage Rosé from Clicquot-Ponsardin
The vintage Brut Rosé Millésimé from the champagne house Veuve Clicquot is the historic rosé of the house which has only offered a vintage rosé for a few years. Like the Brut Millésimé, the Rosé Millésimé must respond to this balancing act which consists in interpreting the uniqueness of a year through the prism of the Veuve Clicquot style. For the cellar master of the house, Dominique Demarville, the harvest must also have a very great aging potential, in order to register the vintages of the Veuve Clicquot house over time and over time.
Pinot Noir metronome Clicquot
Pinot noir is the common thread of the cuvées of champagne Veuve Clicquot, and it enters around 65% in vintage cuvées, a dominant that gives vinous cuvées, with a beautiful structure and a good aging potential. Moreover, it is the Pinot Noir that essentially determines whether a vintage will be vintage.
The culture of vintage champagne at Veuve Clicquot
The place of vintage cuvées within the Veuve Clicquot champagne house is being redefined by Dominique Demarville. He believes that they should become rare again and only register in exceptional years, years as we generally know 2 or 3 per decade. Likewise, it will be almost impossible to find two consecutive vintage years at Clicquot, except in very exceptional cases. If today the house's Rosé Millésimé is Vintage 2004, we will then skip 4 years to arrive at the next vintage rosé, the Rosé vintage 2008 Veuve Clicquot. A year 2008 that Champagne feels more and more exceptional.
Reinventing the exceptional aspect of the vintage
This new prestige of vintage champagnes from Veuve Clicquot is part of a redesigned range. At the top of the pyramid we find the Caves Privées range, these champagnes from the house's wine cellar, then just below La Grande Dame, the prestigious cuvée from Veuve Clicquot, a tribute to the one who gave an international dimension to the wine. Mark. The 2004 vintage embodies the first step in this strategy. Thus, Vintage Brut and Vintage Rosé were marketed at the same time for the first time in the history of the house. Second step for the launch of the Rosé Millésimé 2008.
