"This is a lesson in what a difference 12% red wine can make in a blend, particularly in the hands of one of the finest red wine houses in all of Champagne. In its medium salmon guise, this is an elegant, refined and pretty rosé, in an appealingly fruit-focused style of vibrant strawberries, red cherries and red apple.
Pinot noir takes a confident lead in a fleshy and full mid-palate which coasts into a long finish of accurate line. The brioche, nougat and roast almond of lees maturity are more prominent in the 2012 base than usual, beautifully supporting its fruit presence. Tannins are impeccably handled, leaving lively acidity to define the structure, uninterrupted by well-integrated dosage. The 2012 base represents a particularly distinguished Clicquot Rosé."
