Supremely satisfying and lovely... just like Mom. Hint. Gorgeous notes of field strawberry and some subtle smoke on a long, refreshing finish. Mouth-watering and crisp with some orange citrus lift on the mid-palate. Some kind of wonderful. Pair with shellfish.

Champagne food pairings: turkey sandwiches, veal tenderloin, light fruit pastries.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

The very definition of true elegance. A beautiful pink color in the glass with copper hues. A bouquet of strawberry, raspberry and cherries and subtle hints of grapefruit, cinnamon, brioche and vanilla. The flavors mirror the nose, strawberry, toast, orange peel, and honey. So fresh on the palate, the acidity is sleek with a gorgeous mouthfeel, dancing bubbles and a lingering silky finish.
In 1775, Veuve Clicquot exported the first two bottles of rosé champagne. Made from the best grapes of the vintage this champagne offers fresh field berries and deep minerality. Medium-bodied, crisp and fresh yet with the depth of some age. Long finish. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
