    Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Rose

    Identical to its brother, Brut Yellow Label, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Rose also received 90 points from Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator. The base of this Champagne is identical as well with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes. The ratio DOES change because there is an addition of 12% red wine from the Montagne de Reims vineyard. This luminous bubbly has an enchanting light pink coloring that almost shimmers in your glass. Initial aromas of fresh red fruits lead into brioche notes on the elegant nose because leading into a fresh & creamy texture that offers a light smoky tone. The tone is then interlaced with flavors of strawberry tart, grated coconut, ground spice, and pastry cream (YUM!) There  is a fine balance of fruitiness and acidity in Veuve Clicquot Rose that can be found lingering around when finished.

    Veuve Clicquot is a champagne house baded in the Reims section of France that specializes in premium bubbly. It was originally founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron who had a son named François Clicquot. The house  of Veuve Clicquot was soon established. They opened the door for Champagnes to become a house hold drink. Veuve is best known for being the first house to create a rose Champagne in 1775 by adding red wine during production. The first truly modern Champagne is considered to be the 1811 comet vintage of Veuve Clicquot. They used advanced methods  to create the champagne through the technique of remuage – the process of adding carbonation. Philippe’s son took over the house with his wife Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, who he married in 1798.

    François passed away shortly in 1805, leaving his widow in control of the company. Veuve is the French word for widow: hence Veuve Clicquot. She was the first woman in control of a Champagne house: banking, wool trading, and production. Madame Clicquot guided the firm to focus on one trade to bring them great success. Clicquot established her product in royal courts throughout Europe during the Napoleonic Wars and, in 1811, became the first Champagne house to ship through the blockade to Russia. Champagne was also given to the Prussian guards and soldiers who opened them with their swords. The technique of sabering of Champagne was started. When the Madame passed away in 1866, Veuve Clicquot had become a respected brand, easily recognized by its bright yellow labels, and a significant Champagne house. Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy Group added Veuve Clicquot to its luxury brands.
