Veuve Clicquot Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FranceLike its yellow label sibling, this VC rosé is one of the best selling of its type worldwide. From up to 60 vineyards, this blends 44 to 48 percent pinot noir, 13 to 18 percent meunier and 25 to 29 percent chardonnay, with 12% red wine (saignée method) and up to 40% reserve wines, depending on year. Medium peach in hue, this opens with expressive cherry, red currant, and rhubarb, sharpened with tight cranberry acidity, wrapping around a doughy core, and finishing with an astringent citrus rinse. Pretty assertive and fruit forward, and best taken with food to tame.Tasted: 04 November 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 89.99 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
