Champagne Veuve Clicquot Rich Rosé
The Veuve Clicquot is after Moet & Chandon the most drunk champagne brut in the world. The champagne has considerable power and finesse and is therefore a wine that can be used excellently gastronomically, but is of course also an excellent aperitif. These refined bubbles are an absolute must for those who love a good glass of sparkling wine!
The Veuve Clicquot Rich has a silver coating with the Veuve Clicquot logo punched into it and this is a champagne made to make a great cocktail, so in style: Doux on the rocks Champagne.
In 2015, the Veuve Clicquot champagne house, known for its guts and innovation, is challenging its own famous “savoir-faire” and combining what no one has done before, mixology with champagne.
In the history of champagne, wines that have been blended to obtain a sweeter taste are commonly described as "rich". Even the 1840 Veuve Clicquot bottles recently found in the Šland Islands contain more than 150 grams of sugar per litre. In Russia, consumers have traditionally even added sugar to their champagne for a personal touch. Veuve Clicquot brings this tradition to the present with Veuve Clicquot Rich, a new champagne specially made for mixing. Born from a higher dosage, a tailor-made grape blend, Veuve Clicquot Rich champagne invites enthusiasts to experiment according to their own taste and enrich their champagne experience.
For a delicious champagne cocktail, fill large glasses with ice and add ginger, pineapple, lime or even tea. Rich Rosé is a champagne with a high dosage. This means that the sugar content is comparable to a demi-sec. By adding ice and your own flavor component, you create an exciting champagne experience with the taste of fresh red fruit and of course your own addition.
Today's Maison van Veuve Clicquot has one of the finest champagne vineyards, both in the size and quality of the vines. The 390 hectares are spread over 12 of the 17 Grands Crus and between 20 of the 44 Premiers Crus that make up the entire Champagne region. This exceptional heritage has been built up over the centuries, based on the plots first laid out by the founder and supplemented by later owners. Veuve Clicquot bears Madame Clicquot's casual territorial mark.
While the latter represents only a quarter of the total area of the vines in the entire Champagne region. The grape variety of each plot is determined by assessing the soil, climate, and exposure. The Veuve Clicquot vineyard consists of 47% Chardonnay grapes, 36% Pinot Noir and 17% Pinot Meunier. Clicquot's vines are usually located on gently sloping hillsides allowing the vines to take advantage of shallow soil and maximum exposure to sunlight. Since its inception, the Maison de Veuve Clicquot has also built a strong partnership with its fellow winegrowers in Champagne. These suppliers of grapes and white wines contribute to the consistent quality of the Veuve Clicquot wines.
