Rich Rosé is designed to be served over ice in a wider-rimmed glass than a flute with fresh fruit. Recommended partners include lime, pineapple, ginger and Earl Grey tea. Madame Clicquot, who founded the Champagne house, was the first to create a blended rosé Champagne in 1818. Carrying on this tradition, Veuve Clicquot Rich Rosé includes 12% red wine, while the blend itself is the same as the original Rich – 45% Pinot Noir, 40% Meunier 40% and 15% Chardonnay. In both expressions, the Pinot Noir is given a higher dosage to increase the wine’s overall sugar content to 60g/l. A greater proportion of Meunier meanwhile is intended to emphasise “fresh, fruity and gourmand” notes.

According to the house of Veuve, Champagne is a wine of legend. Driven by a desire for quality, Madame Clicquot - known as the first lady in business - ensured that only the finest wines were produced by her house. Pride in the house motto: "Only one quality, the finest" has meant that only 10 cellar masters have led the quest for quality, ensuring the continuation of the Veuve Clicquot style: strength and complexity.

Grapes from 50 to 60 different crus, or growing areas, are used to produce the iconic Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label, the Champagne blend of the three grapes - 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier, 28 to 33% Chardonnay.

Today, both in France and abroad, the Veuve Clicquot brand continues to embody the values held dear by Madame Clicquot: modernity and audacity blended together with an emphasis on quality and expertise that are second to none. . Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - forcefulness and finesse - and to hold them in perfect balance.
