Veuve Clicquot Cave Privee Rose
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.

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.
