Blend and Origin
Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rosé 2008
A blend of 62% pinot noir, 8% meunier and 30% chardonnay from grands and premiers crus, this champagne is a departure from previous vintages, with 5% vinified and aged in French wooden casks. This lends a lightly woody aroma – reminiscent of vanilla. The pink colour stems from a proportion of red wine (14%) from Bouzy added to the blend.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
