Wine Spectator 93 points - Exotic notes of toasted coconut and rum spice accent this fresh and elegant rose, while flavors of macerated cherry and plum, pastry and pomegranate ride the delicate texture. Graceful, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. -AN

Vinous 92 points - Copper-pink with a frothy mousse. Smoky strawberry and cherry aromas are complicated by buttered toast, blood orange and dried flowers. Deep and chewy, with vivid red berry and bitter cherry flavors underscored by dusty minerals. Gains power on the broad, focused and gently nutty finish. Already complex, and ready to drink.
La Grande Dame Rose is produced only from the eight grand cru vineyards Madame Clicquot purchased in her lifetime, with still Pinot Noir from Bouzy, a grand cru vineyard especially favored by Madame Clicquot
|Each Cuvee is true to the Veuve Clicquot style and spirit, faithfully maintained from the time when Madame Clicquot was running the House under the motto, ”Only one quality, the finest”. Created with a majority of Pinot Noir in the blend, the Veuve Clicquot Champagne style is noted for a firm structure, full-bodied texture and rich aromas.
