Vinous 88 points - (50% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 20% pinot meunier; LLAJCD05842): Light, bright orange. Fresh redcurrant and strawberry aromas are complemented by notes of orange zest and anise. Brisk, mineral-accented red fruit flavors are slightly pinched but gain depth with air. Finishes with a bitter blood orange quality and firm grip.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Fresh and creamy in texture, this offers a lightly smoky overtone to the flavors of strawberry tart, pastry cream, grated coconut and ground spice. Drink now through 2018. -AN

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This is a beautiful, full rose that is rich and shows a fine balance between acidity and fruitiness. This bottling is also mature with toastiness coming through, giving a softer, rounder character. There is weight, and great acidity on the finish. (Dec 2013)
As the Rosé expression of the Brut Yellow Label, the flagship of Veuve Clicquot's thrilling and vibrant style, Veuve Clicquot Rosé is the instinctive choice for distinctive and romantic celebration. Its superb rosé colour with coppery accents brings an additional touch of audacity, modernity and romanticism… so Clicquot!
The wine has a luminous colour with radiant rose accents. The nose is elegant and generous, with initial aromas of fresh red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry, cherry and blackberry) leading to dried fruits and biscuit notes (almonds, apricots and brioche).
On the palate, the fresh first impression is followed by a fruity harmonious sensation. In line with the style of the Veuve Clicquot House, the wine is perfectly balanced and combines elegance and personality.The wine works its magic - this delectable champagne is beautifully ample and full of charm. It is a delicious wine in early bloom, a Rosé with character, wonderful as an aperitif to be shared as a twosome or with dear friends.
|Each Cuvee is true to the Veuve Clicquot style and spirit, faithfully maintained from the time when Madame Clicquot was running the House under the motto, ”Only one quality, the finest”. Created with a majority of Pinot Noir in the blend, the Veuve Clicquot Champagne style is noted for a firm structure, full-bodied texture and rich aromas.
