Article: Veuve Clicquot Rose Brut Vintage 2008
Country: France
Region: Reims
Classification: Vintage Champagne, rosé
Producer: Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Vintage: 2008
Grape variety: 62% Pinot Noir, 8% Pinot Meunier und 30% Chardonnay
Alcohol: 12%
Characteristics: Plenty of fine bubbles climb in light, elegant pearl ribbons and disappear gently at the surface.
Colour: Firmly pale red hue with glance copper.
Flavour: The first impression in the nose is dominated by elegant flavours of red berries (red and black currants) and crisp fruits (wild raspberries, plums and cherries). Shiner and lilac notes remind of spring smells while little by little "automn" nuances (dried fruit, quince jelly, dried figs) are manifesting themselves. One foresees a breath of ground coffee or cocoa at the same time.
Taste: At the palate straight and dynamic, extremely full-bodied and multilayered.
Finish: Lasting and gentle with honey and almond notes.
Drinking temperature: 10 - 12°C
Drink recommendation: Ideal to a cocktail buffet with light spring canapés(Petit-Fours with grilled eggplant or dried tomatoes, scallop foam cream, salmon browned crisply and tapas) or of cold or warm starters (medium simmered red tunafish with goat's milk cheese and herbs, fried lobster seasoned with liquorice, monkfish simmered in the stove with soft Chorizo). Also the 'Teatime' with a glass Vintage Rosé  2008 accompanied by shortbread and jam from red fruits is a special delight.

The Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rosé 2008 consists of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, combined with 15% red wine from the cultivable area Bouzy (Grand Cru - Pinot Noir). The choice of the grapes plays an extremely important role. 20 layers flowed into the assemblage, exclusively Grands or Premier Crus.
