Made using grapes from 50 to 60 different villages, the structure is based on Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend, i.e.
- 50 to 55% Pinot Noir
- 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier
- 28 to 33% Chardonnay
The blend includes a high percentage (25-35%, sometimes 40%) of "reserve wines" originating from several harvests of the past, which ensures the consistency and quality of the house style. It is completed with approximately 12% of red wine using black grapes especially raised and selected to give a marvellous balance to this Rosé.
In 1772, Philippe Clicquot founded a wine-making business under the name Clicquot. In 1798, his son François, who had taken over the family enterprise, married Barbe Nicole Ponsardin. At the time of François' death in 1805, the young 27-year-old widow decided to continue her husband's legacy. A woman of vision, she became the driving force behind the prestige and success of the brand, which in 1810 was renamed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin.
Ever in pursuit of excellence and innovation, in 1816 Madame Clicquot invented the riddling table with the aim of obtaining clarified champagnes of unrivalled quality. She became known by her contemporaries as the "Grand Dame of Champagne", in recognition of her audacity and determination. Row by row, Madame Clicquot used her skills to develop an exceptional wine-growing territory, consisting of 515 hectares in the heart of the Champagne region's finest vineyard estates.
Today, both in France and abroad, the Veuve Clicquot brand continues to embody the values held dear by Madame Clicquot: modernity and audacity blended together with an emphasis on quality and expertise that are second to none.
Veuve Clicquot was the first house to export a rosé champagne to Switzerland, in 1775. Match-less know-how has made it a house speciality and Veuve Clicquot has been making rosé champagnes in the great vintage years since the end of the eighteenth century.
The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine.
