Champagne Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Demi-Sec 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

Creamy, with a touch of sweetness. Veuve Clicquot's Demi-Sec (the classic accompaniment to dessert) is equally pleasing as an apéritif. This stylish blend is evocative of the wine Madame Clicquot herself produced in the early 19th century. Wonderful with fruit and cream-based desserts such as tarts, mousses and especially crème brûlée.

Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, many originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champagne region and are exceptional in size and quality. As in madame Clicquot's day, bottles age in the House's vast, vaulted cellars in Reims, portions of which were constructed some 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The remarkable Madame Clicquot (1777-1866) is considered one of the first business-women of the modern era. Widowed in 1805 at the age of 27, Madame Veuve Clicquot (born Ponsardin) defied every convention of the day to take the helm of her late husband's small Champagne House. She personally supervised cellar activities and introduced innovative production techniques still used today. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied Champagne. Read less

Champagne, FranceVeuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne is the perfect Champagne for those who favor a little sweetness in their bubbly!Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut is named for the matriarch of the brand, Madame Clicquot (1777-1866), one of the first businesswomen of the modern era. When her husband died, Madame Clicquot took over his small Champagne house, a widow ("veuve") at the age of 27. She made important technological innovations (including the invention of riddling) and led the house to world renown. Madame Clicquot is perhaps most famous for sending a secret shipment of her Champagne to Russia in 1814, in defiance of Napoleon's blockade!Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne is a beautiful yellow in color with deep golden highlights and a fine, even effervescence. It is made primarily of Pinot Noir, for its structure, Pinot Meunier, for its distinctive fruit flavors, and Chardonnay, for its freshness and delicacy. On the nose, it offers ripe fruit and berries with hints of brioche. In the mouth the wine is round, mellow and fresh with ripe fruit flavors. This Champagne is long, crisp, and spicy on the finish.Enjoy Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne with pear tarts, crepes Suzette, creme brulee, and tarte Tatin. Cheers!
