Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rose 2008 Overview

-
Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is a House steeped in rich history that owes its success largely to one woman, Barbe-Nicole Clicquot-Ponsardin. Madame Clicquot also invented the riddling rack on her kitchen table, an apparatus that removes the sediment from the bottle after second fermentation still used in the region today. Veuve Clicquot own a respectable 382 hectares of vineyards with an emphasis on Pinot Noir. The House maintains the largest collection of old reserve wines in Champagne, these help give Yellow Label its complexity while ensuring the high quality is maintained in the world’s second bestselling Champagne brand. In 2008 Dominique Demarville joined as Cellar Master, he “refreshed the brand” including increasing the proportion of Pinot Noir in La Grande Dame to 90%+ and with blending shifts he brought a new freshness in Yellow Label. In 2019 Didier Mariotti took over as Cellar Master.

New to this 2008 Vintage: 5% of the wines were produced and aged in wooden casks from forests in Central France, from Allier and Vosges. This was to increase the complexity and aromatic richness of our Vintages, our gourmet wines. These cask-aged wines constitute the spices of the blend. Their aromas are very lightly woody, vanilla with toasted aromas.

Weather: 2008 was dominated by grey, overcast skies – an exception in a decade characterized by bold, generous sunshine. Spring and summer brought the same lack of sunlight and absence of high temperatures. It was September that saved the vintage, belatedly and miraculously. Just when the harvest was getting underway (on September 15), the weather conditions were finally perfect: blue skies and prolonged north-northeasterly winds. Picking was spread out over a long period in order to benefit from this positive turn of events. The grapes were riper than anyone dared hope, and had truly outstanding balance. The vines were in perfect health.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 61% Pinot Noir (14% of which is red wine), 34% Chardonnay, 5% Meunier
Red wine: 14%
Lees Ageing: 8 years
Dosage: 8 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: This has a fine bead of bubbles present with a golden yellow colour. On the nose: white fruits and nicely balanced citrus notes. On the palate: the Pinot Noir dominance shines through but is balanced perfectly by the delicate Chardonnay. Ripe fruits and some hints of brioche on the finish. A great non-vintage.

Expert Reviews
93 → 95/100
Essi Avellan MW
“Beautiful onion-skin hued colour. Strong, winey, pronouncedly berried nose with cherry, perfumy and spicy layers taking the leading role. It sits safely on the reductive side with a fine gunpowdery undertone. Vibrant and succulent palate, the red wine component is perfectly integrated to the wine, leaving a seamless and polished impression. Both wide and long with mouthwatering freshness and generous, bright fruitiness up until the very finish. A great effort for Dominique Demarville’s first Vintage Rosé at Clicquot.”
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Similar colour to La Grande Dame rosé 2008, only very slightly darker than La Grande Dame Blanc 2008. If someone were blindfolded they might well guess it was a still Pinot Noir. Big and bold. With a little more acidity and vegy streak than most Pinots. Ends like a 2008, with the vintage’s characteristic tightness but very bold and fruity.”
92+/100
William Kelley
“The 2008 Brut Vintage Rosé is showing well, exhibiting an inviting bouquet of berries, honeycomb, toasted brioche and plum preserve. Medium to full-bodied, it's chalkier and more incisive than its white counterpart, with a lively spine of acidity and a saline finish. Again, the vintage signature is just as prominent as the house style.”
95/100
Peter Moser
“Light salmon pink, silver shimmers, refined, well persistent mousse. A shy bouquet pervaded by fine red fruits of the forest jam, cherry conserve and a hint of blossom honey. Elegant, fine creamy texture, pleasant acidity, ripe red apple nuances, pleasant citrus touch, mineral echos, persistent with a dash of ginger. A charming food accompaniment.”

    An insightful vins clairs tasting with Dominique Demarville, Veuve Clicquot's eminent Chef de Cave, painted a clear picture of the 2018 vintage. Fresh, ripe and mature, with plenty of ageing potential, the base wines at Clicquot were either exceptional or good... none of them were bad.
