Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Pack de 2 Botellas 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine & Spirits: A vibrant 2000, this delicate yet potent pinot noir has plenty of internal energy to drive its flavors. A dusting of chalk merges with the fruit at the end of the taste, warm, round and remarkably long. The fine balance should allow this to develop well over the next ten years. (Dec 2006) 71% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, 9% Pinot Meunier.

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

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewCopper-tinged gold. Strawberry and raspberry preserves on the nose, with hints of toffee and floral honey. Ripe red fruit flavors are deepened by sweet, subtle notes of toffee and caramel, with a hint of white flowers adding complexity. This rather elegant, laid-back rose combines freshness and a warm, toasty quality, finishing with very good length and a flavor of sweet peach.
