Veuve Clicquot Rose NV Isotherm Jacket
Madame Clicquot seized the reins of the Clicquot house in 1805, widowed after just seven years of marriage to Francois Cliquot. The audacious and intelligent Madame Clicquot created the very first blend of rosé champagne and within just a few years she made her name into a brand of excellence, her peers referring to her as the “Grande Dame of Champagne.” The elegant, fruity and full-bodied Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne comes in a baby pink Isotherm jacket with carrying handle to keep it cool as you follow the path to a summer party hideaway.
This very pretty rosé Champagne appeals to the senses with its bright baby-pink colour and aromas of sweet strawberry preserves on fresh-baked scones. Though intense, the palate achieves a seamless balance between vibrant red fruit flavours and creamy, biscuity notes that extend into the finish. A refreshing drink before food or with a fruit platter.

Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide
This is a lesson in what a difference twelve percent red wine can make in a blend, contributing sufficient chalky structure and red wine grip to soften the impact of its dosage. An attractive 'strawberries and cream' style with lingering red berry freshness and a long, rounded finish. The current disgorgement is even fresher in Australia than it was last year, and the price premium on the Brut Yellow Label even less, making this one of the more stylish options among the readily available champagne rosé's this year.

Has the same apparent composition as the NV Yellow Label of 50-52% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 18-20% pinot meunier; but here there is 12% pinot noir table wine included in the total pinot component. Demarville says it is the most difficult wine to make; the red wine tannins must be managed so that the creamy mouthfeel is maintained, without denying the strawberry-accented fruit flavours their distinct point of difference.

Blushing peach in color, with a floral and berry nose, opening in the glass to reveal summer fruits, wild berries and notes of watermelon. Light but generous and vibrant, with a long mousse and sharp bubbles that last and last, all leading to a long, pear and mineral-rich finish. Drink now.
