Fresh, elegant and full-bodied Rosé from one of Champagnes powerhouses
Full-bodied and fruity with an attractive toasty edge. Luminous copper hues in appearance and bursting with aromas of red berries and cherries, orange rind, rose petals and dried white flowers. Charming and supple, with further flavours of Vienniese pastries, toasted bread and mint wrapped around its core of red fruits.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
In 1818, the formidable Madame Clicquot, “La grande dame de la Champagne” invented this Rosé. Taken from a selected blend of 50-60 Crus from some of the most sought-after vineyards in the region, it is based on the House’s Yellow Label Cuvée.
The structure of the blend is provided by 50% Pinot Noir, 20% Meunier to provide youthful fruitness and 30% Chardonnay for finesse and elegance. Here we have once more, another fitting tribute from the House to the First Lady of Champagne.
