Ships to: DC, CA
Size: 750 ml
The Veuve Clicquot Colorama (or Gouache) takes inspiration from a tube of paint and pays tribute to the color mixing and the blending know-how of Veuve Clicquot. It can also keep the bottle cool for up to two hours.
Veuve Clicquot Rosé has an intense and elegant nose. Notes of raspberry, wild strawberry and cherry predominate, followed by a touch of dried fruits and pastry. On the palate, the attack is powerful, leaving behind a harmony of fruits. Elegant and sensual, the Rose offers exceptional balance and surprising intensity.
Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is synonymous with the art of living. The House style distinguishes itself through the dominance of Pinot Noir which gives strength, complexity and elegance to our wines.
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Region: Reims, France - Champagne AOC
Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name is derived from the French words for pine and black. The word pine alludes to the grape variety having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler climates. Pinot noir is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. The grape's tendency to produce tightly packed clusters makes it susceptible to several viticultural hazards involving rot that require diligent canopy management. The thin-skins and low levels of phenolic compounds lends pinot to producing mostly lightly colored, medium bodied and low tannin wines that can often go through phases of uneven and unpredictable aging. When young, wines made from pinot noir tend to have red fruit aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries. As the wine ages, pinot has the potential to develop more vegetal and "barnyard" aromas that can contribute to the complexity of the wine.
