Veuve Clicquot Cave Privée Rosé 1990 Champagne

Veuve Clicquot Cave Privée is the result of a daring vision. It was born in the depths of our chalk cellars, out of intuition, passion, and also tenacity on the part of the oenologists at Veuve Clicquot. For more than 30 years they have persevered, carefully guarding each vintage, driven by a wild dream that one day they would reveal them to connoisseurs throughout the world. Year after year, they have created and nurtured these fine vintages, taking care to respect and enhance the unique character of each one. Dominique Demarville, Veuve Clicquot’s cellar master, is now able to open the doors of Veuve Clicquot Cave Privée: a unique collection of rare vintages meticulously selected by successive generations of cellar masters.

The 1990 Vintage Reserve is a blend of 17 different Crus, all classified as Grands and Premiers Crus. Black grapes make up two thirds of the blend: 47% Pinot noir, from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne, and 9% Pinot Meunier, from the Premiers Crus in the west of the Montagne de Reims. 27% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and, to a lesser extent, from the Montagne de Reims. The addition of 17% red wine from Bouzy from Veuve Clicquot’s vineyards complete the blend. The picking started in the second week of September for Chardonnay, a week later for the Pinot Noir and Meunier. The three grape varieties were uniformly superb.

The year began with the harvest experiencing a damp and mild winter resulting in early bud burst. However, the vines became susceptible to spring frosts and this affected almost 12,000 hectares. An intense sunshine and heat during the days, combined with cool nights helped create amazing grapes with a great acidity level.

The nose has hints of ginger and liquorice which leads to a well balanced and nicely rounded palate. An abundance of red fruits, blackberries and ripe strawberries, on the mid palate the flavours intensify. In a magnum, this Rosé has an incredible life left and given time to mature will be very rewarding.
