Madame Clicquot created the first blended Rosé in 1818 by adding some red wine to Yellow Label champagne. The result was Veuve Clicquot Rosé, a fruity and full-bodied expression of the Veuve Clicquot style.

Wine EnthusiastTasted from a magnum disgorged in '97, this provides ample evidence that '85 was a great year for Clicquot. Toasty, but seems less evolved than the '85 Brut, with a deep copper color, meaty, savory aromas, berry flavors and a full, creamy texture. Long on the finish. It's made from the same base as the '85 Brut, but with 14.5% red from Bouzy added.

Wine SpectatorThis rosé Champagne is aging gracefully, layering flavors of coffee, treacle, roasted nuts, toasted bread, dried cherry and spice. Rich and elegant, with lovely integration of the still-vibrant acidity. The finish of smoke and graphite lingers. Drink now through 2015.
