A more subdued nose of predominatly yeast with a touch of wash rind cheese and raspberry bramble. The palate is light weight with a touch of tart fruits towards cherry and orange peel. This has medium weight, and medium acid. D&M Tasting Notes
The pink-orange colored 2008 Vintage Brut Rosé (disgorged March 2015) offers a very delicate, clear and elegant bouquet with juniper flavors. Clear, elegant and fresh on the palate, this is a round and well-structured, yet still very young Rosé with fine tannins and a nice grip in the finish. This is a refreshing palate cleanser that needs food or another 10-20 years to shine. Try it with pata negra or traditional Japanese dishes. Honestly, I have never tasted better Champagnes from Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin than I did in March this year. The cuvées were as fresh as they were complex, and I left the company with a sense of wonder. If only they could export their perfect storing capacities! La Grande Dame is the star, but it won't do you any harm taste or re-taste one of the 13.5 million bottles of the Yellow Label. I was also impressed by the white Vintage Brut 2008. 91 Points Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker.com May 2016.
