ABOUT THE WINE

Established in 1772 Veuve Clicquot’s story is steeped in Champagne history. The original Veuve 'widow' Madame Clicquot elevated her business with impeccable attention to detail and a contagious passion for marketing. During the Napoleonic Wars, she made strides in establishing her Champagne in royal courts throughout Europe, most famously in Imperial Russia, thus becoming the first Champagne house to break the blockade of Russia in 1811. After Dom Perignon, she is the most influential figure credited with achieving the modern, crisp, toasty Champagne taste we all love today. Thanks to strict production methods and modern techniques she introduced in the winery and finessed the 'Champagne Method' by inventing 'remuage', the process for removing the cloudy sediment from the bottle. Veuve Clicquot is also credited to be the primary Champagne house to produce the first ever rosé Champagne. This is why Veuve Clicquot rosé Champagne is extra special and makes Rich a truly revolutionary style. Since 1987, the house has been under the ownership of Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy Group.


TASTING NOTES

A noticeably demi-sec Champagne, making it a sweet delight to sip on and on in an easy way. Flavours aren’t shy, but still keep their purity with candied floral and citrus characters dominating –This Champagne should be served chilled and on the rocks, with your preferred garnish, but we find an orange zest or works brilliantly with the bouquet of this unique and revolutionary Champagne. A wine that makes a statement with its charming sweetness and is made for days of celebration and relaxation in any setting. However, it's best paired with the beach or the garden on a warm sunny day.


FOOD PAIRING

Dessert works best. But salty snacks such as salty caviar with blinis and truffle crisps work brilliantly well too. Salty cheeses such as parmesan or extra mature cheddar deliciously accompany the sweetness. Milky desserts along the lines of panna cotta and parfait, or light, fruit-based desserts such as summer fruit and berry tarts work nicely. It shouldn’t be missed that ice cream, most notably fruit sorbets are matches made in heaven for the Rich.


FRIARWOOD SAYS

From a revolutionary past as the producer of the first rosé Champagne, Veuve Clicquot Rich was produced following an experiment with one of LVMH’s other brands, Moët, which saw the creation and successful marketing of ‘Moët Ice’. The segment which was born from this experiment sees Champagne as a beverage, rather than a wine. Hence it was designed to give pleasure from the get-go by being used as a premium alternative mixer on days of relaxation and meditation on the beach or under the sun.
