Product details

Climatically, the year was similar to 1989. After a damp, mild winter, the buds burst almost a month early. The vineyards were therefore at risk from spring frost, which came in two waves on the 5th and 19th April, affecting almost 12,000 hectares. The flowering came in the first two weeks of June, in cooler weather. With July, summer came to last. If temperature and rainfall were normal, the hours of sunshine were by comparison, quite exceptional: almost 2,100 hours, a record for the last 30 years. As the harvest drew near, sugar content rose rapidly while acidity maintained a good level. The cuvée Cave Privée Rosé 1990 is a blend of Grands and Premiers Crus. It is a blend of 56% Pinot Noir, 11% Meunier and 33% Chardonnay. The addition of 17% red wine from Bouzy from our own production using grapes from our vines completed the blend.

Tasting notes

The 1990 vintage Rosé is imposing. It was a year that fulfilled all of the Cellar Master’s wishes, with the wine prepared under conditions close to perfection, before it was laid into the cellar to mature in all its majesty. Deep pink colour with coppery glints and smooth, delicate bubbles. Morello cherries, gingerbread and liquorice.

GRANDE DAME OF CHAMPAGNE

Barbe Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin was born in 1777, the daughter of a textile manufacturer in Reims, Champagne. Widowed at the age of only 27, she took control of her own destiny and became one of the first modern entrepreneurs. In an era when women were excluded from the business world, she dared to assume the head of the company founded by her father-in-law in 1772, a role she undertook with passion and determination. Her creativity and lust for innovation led to many firsts in Champagne: the first known vintage champagne; the invention of the riddling table; the first known blended rosé champagne. Three inventions that revolutionised champagne making and were widely adopted by producers, becoming the basis of modern champagne production. Madame Clicquot made her name into a brand of excellence and had it shine the world over. Her formidable contributions earned her the nickname of "La Grande Dame of Champagne".
