Description & Technical Information
-
Distinctive and powerful, each Veuve Clicquot vintage is the unique expression of a single harvest chosen for its remarkable quality and loyalty to the House style. Vintages with exceptional qualities and unparalleled ageing potential are carefully preserved for decades at the heart of Veuve Clicquot’s chalk cellars in Reims, making up the Cave Privée collection. The addition of 17% red wine from Veuve Clicquot's unique vineyard in Bouzy complete the Cave Privée Rosé blend.

Weather: The 1990 vintage experienced some frost damage early in the year, particularly during April. However, a superb summer helped the grapes thrive in their growth. Due to the long days and summer sun combined with cool nights, the grapes had excellent alcohol and acidity levels. The crop was the third largest on record and 1990 produced the ripest wines since 1959. A fantastic vintage.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Pinot Noir: Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne | Chardonnay: Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims | Pinot Meunier: Montagne de Reims | Red Wine: Bouzy

Ageing: 15 years on the lees

Tasting Note: 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 magnum, this rosé has an incredible life left and given time to mature will be very rewarding.

Antonio Galloni
“Veuve Clicquot's 1990 Brut Cave Privée Rosé is utterly exquisite. A dazzling, vinous wine, the 1990 graces the palate with superb depth and power. Layers of perfumed, spiced fruit build to a crescendo of aromas and flavors that make it impossible to resist a second taste. Readers lucky enough to find the 1990 can look forward to years of exceptional drinking. What a pleasure it is to see the 1990 Cave Privée Rosé showing so well.”
