Veuve Clicquot Vintage 2006 la grande dame rosé 75 cl

Audacious and visionary, she made her champagne known to the world Know How & Craftsmanship: For over 200 years, the House has stayed true to its motto : ‘Only one quality, the finest’
60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
Intense colour with copper glints. Very small, sparkling bubbles
The initial nose reveals a saline, mineral background, then notes of red fruits (Morello cherry, wild strawberry, redcurrant) and some more toasted notes of hazelnut, cocoa bean and sweet spices. When agitated, these empyreumatic characteristics are accentuated, while the aromatic complexity of the great Pinot Noir is ever -present. In the mouth, it is plump and full of substance. The texture is crisp and silky. The tannins are still present, calling for a cuisine with texture to bring out the best in wine. The finish is long and coats the palate. The tannins are already very well integrated and can be expected to blend in still further over the coming years.
It will be delicious with starters or appetisers made smoked, cured products, white emats, autumn mushrooms. It will be perfect as an aperitif.
