The base blend is identical to Brut Yellow Label, with an addition of 12% of red wine from vineyards in the Montagne de Reims. A luminous color with attractive pink glints, an elegant nose with initial aromas of fresh red fruit leading to brioche notes

This is a beautiful, full rose that is rich and shows a fine balance between acidity and fruitiness. This bottling is also mature with toastiness coming through, giving a softer, rounder character. There is weight, and great acidity on the finish.

Virtually identical in encepagement to the corresponding white, but incorporating red Pinot from Bouzy, Clicquots 2004 Brut Rose offers abundance of fresh, juicy sour cherry accented with black tea and leather, a fine grain of tannin lending stimulation in a finish otherwise dominantly fruity and a bit extraneously sweet. I would plan on drinking this soon.

Wine maker notes
Our non-vintage rosé is the end result of a desire to create a rosé champagne with a delightfully luscious, fruit-based charm. Jacques Péters, the cellarmaster, and his team wanted a champagne that would be accessible and naturally engaging while conserving Veuve Clicquot's essential values in terms of style. Made using 50 to 60 different crus, the cuvee is based on Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend: 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier, and 28 to 33% Chardonnay. The blend includes a particularly high percentage (25-35%, sometimes 40%) of reserve wines originating from several harvests (usually 5 or 6), which ensures the consistency of the house style. The reserve wines, some of which are 9 years old, are kept separately depending on the origin of the crus and the years in which the wines were produced. This blend is completed with 12% of red wines using red grapes especially raised and selected to give a marvellous balance to this rosé.
