1995 Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, La Grande Dame Rosé, Champagne, France

There is something special about “Pink” Champagne. In this case a rather dark salmon colour, but still very beautiful. The nose was within the first 5-10 minutes hardly existent, but then slowly showing sign of life with rustic flavours of red fruit, strawberry and apples. The taste is muscular with rough edges and notes of sea and young apples, but a bit of metallic afterburners on the closing. It has massive aging potential (91++).

(Tasted Dec-2006)
