About Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, but it was his daughter-in-law, Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin who would catapult it to greatness. The empire that Madam Clicquot built now includes 360 hectares of vines, including 12 of the 17 Grand Crus in Champagne.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2006
($85) Copper-tinged gold. Strawberry and raspberry preserves on the nose, with hints of toffee and floral honey. Ripe red fruit flavors are deepened by sweet, subtle notes of toffee and caramel, with a hint of white flowers adding complexity. This rather elegant, laid-back rose combines freshness and a warm, toasty quality, finishing with very good length and a flavor of sweet peach.
