Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne review: Which food pairs well with it?
Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne is a crisp, refreshing, and bubbly Champagne.
Bubbles cleanse the palate and as such sparkling wines are very versatile wines that can pair with many dishes and can be used throughout a meal.
Classic appetizers are French fries, San Daniele ham, creamy potatoes, seafood risotto, and salads to name some.
Meat wise go for turkey, chicken, and lemon chicken for example.
For fish, we recommend oyster, lobster, salmon, sashimi, fish & chips, and fried calamari.
If you are a cheese lover you should try it with cream cheese like Camembert and Brie to name some.
And yes, in case you wonder, it goes well with dessert too like macaroons, chocolate, Paris-Brest, and Saint-Honoré for example.
Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne review: What's its alcohol content?
Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne wine’s alcohol content is 12.5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Champagne wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per gram vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per gram of carbs, which include sugar.
What is Veuve Clicquot?
Here is an extract from the Veuve Clicquot brand website:
“In an era when women were excluded from the business world, she dared to assume the head of the company, a role she undertook with passion and determination.
Madame Clicquot’s character might be summarized with two words: audacious and intelligent.“
Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé is one of the best Brut Rosé Champagne around that although it is a bit pricey, is worth the experience.
Its high acidity and bubbles will complement many dishes from veggie, pasta, white meats, cheeses, and dessert.
Try Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé with San Daniele ham, oyster, salmon, fish & chips, camembert, or chocolate and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
