Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rosé 2012 Gift Boxed
The quality of the 2008 harvest was exceptional with great potential for aging and declared the third Veuve Clicquot vintage in the decade and the House's 65th vintage since 1810. It was the first time a small quantity of wine was produced and aged in wooden casks to increase complexity and aromatic richness.
The palate is powerful and voluminous, with an attack that is distinct and clear. It unfolds with initial aromas of luscious red fruit, strawberry and Morello cherry. Next to arrive are dense notes of noble tannins; their velvety, silky caress is the perfect counterpoint to Vintage Rosé 2012’s spicy saffron and peppery notes.

Vintage 2008 - As you'd expect from Veuve, this brash, toasty and bold vintage rose is a style that has plenty of grilled nuts and complex, spicy autolysis character laid across rich red fruits in convincing, forthright style. The palate's similarly bold and confident, showing plenty of ripe red fruit flavour, smooth build, and a gently toasty pastry and nut-flavoured finish. Very satisfying Champagne.
