Champagne Veuve Clicquot Overview
+
The blend is made up of 53% Pinot Noir from the Grand Crus in Ay and Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy vineyards. The other component in the blend is 32% Chardonnay using three Grand Crus, Avize, Oger and le Mesnil-sur-Oger from the Cote des Blancs. The Grande Dame Rosé 1995 is obtained with the addition of 15% red wine made entirely from Pinot Noir grapes from the village of Bouzy. The vast majority of grapes comes from the Clos Colin, one of Veuve Clicquot best lots situated in the heart of the Grand Cru.

1995 began with a wet and mild winter but spring sunshine and ideal conditions meant bud break took place between 6th and 17th April, one week ahead of time. Late spring leading into the early summer months the weather conditions were warm and gave excellent growth to the grapes. Because of the stormy weather in July, there was a major threat of Botrytis which was monitored by many houses in Champagne. However, sunny and hot conditions in August and early September meant that the grapes were at ideal ripeness at harvest time. Harvest for Chardonnays began on 21st September and Pinot Noir and Meunier followed a week later.

On the nose subtle fragrances of strawberries and wild red fruits. The palate is stunning, with an abundance of fresh strawberries and raspberries combined with hints of toasted notes of ginger and honey. The finish is long and lingering with the divine combination of the fruits and toasty qualities, very smooth and full bodied.

Grape Varieties: 53% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay, incl 15% Red Wine
