Veuve Clicquot Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FranceIt’s sometimes hard to imagine a wine with 50 to 60 moving parts, but this rosé comes from that number of crus, and just to keep it VC-like, the blend is more or less the same as its Yellow Label cousin at 44 to 48 percent pinot noir, 13 to 18 percent meunier and 25 to 29 percent chardonnay. Now get ready for more: there is 25 to 40 percent reserve wines from up to five harvests to keep the VC house style in place. La Cuvée Rosé, one of the bestselling rosé champagnes in the world, and one of the few still made using the saignée method, completes the blend with 12 percent of red wine using red grapes specially raised and selected to give a marvellous balance and colour to this wine. Again, bright fresh red fruits with a strong citrus, leesy, biscuit undertone with swirls of tea, cherries and strawberries. This rosé is all about food and we loved it with tuna sashimi.Tasted: 05 November 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 85.99 BCLS AB 85.99 private wine stores ON 89.80 LCBO QC 87.50 SAQ NS 85.00 SK 83.99 SaskLiquor MB 90.76 Manitoba Liquor Mart NL 98.48 NLLC Producer: Veuve Clicquot PonsardinDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
