Veuve Clicquot Cave Privee Rose 1979 Champagne 150cl Gift Box
The 1970's were a decade that did not produce many vintage years capable of long ageing. The Veuve Clicquot Cave Privée Rosé 1979 is an exception which confirms this rule with a rather late harvest and grapes that took time to ripen. The colour today is warm and deep (the blend contains 19% red Bouzy wines) with copper glints.
The nose is heady with notes of saffron, curry, leather, dark fruit and a hint of eau de vie. On the palate you are struck by its freshness underlining the saline character of our chalky terroir. The rich finish has a texture that admits us to the world of great Pinot Noirs. The bubbles are discrete: for this great wine effervescence is only secondary.Read more...
