This is not your ordinary Rosé, and it’s far from white Zinfandel. The famous Champagne house produced a non-vintage Rosé in its early beginnings back in 1775, but for the last hundred years or so, only the much pricier vintage Rosés would have been available at your local wine shop. This new product from Veuve Clicquot is fresh, light and destined to become a hot aperitif. Drawing on the success of the yellow label, the pink twist is sure to attract trendy drinkers. With a fine mousse and dark salmon hue, this Champagne greets you with raspberry and strawberry aromas. What follows is deep, intense and strong—all characteristically Veuve. To the base of the Brut Yellow Label, winemaker Jacques Péters added a blend of still red wine from specially cultivated Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes to the blend. After three years of aging, flavors of dried fruit and Viennese pastries develop. Though light on the taste buds, this wine is perfectly balanced and can be enjoyed with food like white fish and light appetizers.
