Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut Vintage Rare 2009
Veuve Clicquot Cuvée 2002 The Vintage 2002 is made up of 60 Pinot Noir, 7 Pinot Meunier and 33 Chardonnay. The choice of grape classification is of vital importance. The blend includes 17 crus only, which are either Grand or Premier Crus. These are located in the Montagne de Reims including Pinot Noir from Verzenay(Grand Cru) and Pinot Meunier from Ludes(Premier Cru), in the Grande Valléede la Marne with Pinot Noir from Ay(Grand Cru) and in the Cote des Blancs where Le Mesnil-sur-Oger constitutes one of the best Chardonnay (Grand Cru) vineyards.A dose of 9g/l of sugar was added.Sensory NotesThe 2002 vintage has a pale gold color with silver accents. It has a brilliant aspect and effervescence is lively and long-lasting.The nose is very open, pure and complex. The Chardonnay gives this wine a refined mineral flavor accompanied with pleasant flowery notes of acacia. Aerating the wine reveals hints of yellow-fleshed fruit and pastries (brioche, marzipan). These give way to delicately spicy aromas, followed by elegant notes of licorice and high-bred teas. In the mouth the wine is silky and generous. The expectations promised by the nose are met and even exceeded as the complexity of this wine is superlative: simultaneously evoking fruity and floral, mineral and spicy notes, menthol and toastThis wine is quite simply dazzling with its wealth of aromas, and a deliciously long and powerful finish.This elegant vintage is already remarkably well-balanced, and it will continue to enchant the palate for at least 15 years. Meanwhile, this wine can accompany the most refined dishes. It is eminently suitable for the most original matches. Try it with bass tartare, poached turbot served on a bed of fresh pasta, or cappuccino of Bresse chicken with candied citrus fruits.Keen devotees will enjoy it as an aperitif for very special occasions.

[NYE] Reliable. Clean, round.
Golden yellow and bright with plenty of foam, this champagne has a nose rich and vinous with flavors of yeast, tropical fruit, and almond. Hints of fruit and spices in the bubbles and layers of strawberry, cognac, and fruit liqueur lead to a good finish.
Excellent QPR for a quality French champagne. Small bead, light and lemony, with some toasted notes to give it complexity. Our favorite budget champagne. With L, P, L, and L.
widow cliquot bouquet - sweet, caramel, burnt sugar taste - refreshing and palette cleansing, thin, unbalanced, one dimensional

One of the Best! Lots and lots of silky bubbles! Not to sweet, not too sharp. . . just right!
Never had a bad bottle of this yum very creamy style I've enjoyed all of their line always
