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.

($50; Lot 14009913) Yellow-gold. Musky pear and peach skin aromas, plus a hint of spun sugar. Juicy if uncomplicated peach and melon flavors provide good palate coverage and are firmed by a note of bitter lemon pith. Finishes on a sweet note, with go... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note.

This seems drier than its stablemate, the famous Yellow Label, and is the better for it. There is an urgent freshness here, driven by red currants and tight plum skin flavors. It is lively but full in the mouth, and shows just the right bottle age.

Perfumed scents of lemon curd, white peach, brioche and white flowers. Silky flavors of apple, pear and flint have exquisite balance. Tart close shows lots of citrus.

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Magnum (1,5L): Freuen Sie sich auf die geballte Kraft Jahrhunderte alten Eigentums. Indiesem Champager ist das Beste von den Weinbergen der Veuve Clicquot insich vereint, er verbündet in sich eine Assemblage stets gleichbleibender Güte. Man kann sagen, da hat es ein erfahrener Kellermeisteraber vollends im Blut, die Trauben so zusammen zu stellen, das am Endeeine wohlklingende Harmonie entsteht. Im Glas zeigt sich eine klaregoldgelbe Farbe, welche von zahlreichen Perlchen, die aus den Tiefendes Kelches aufsteigen, kontinuierlich gespeist wird. Die Nase nimmtwohlwollend weißfleischige Früchte und Weintrauben entgegen, dazugesellt sich ein Hauch an Vanille und kurz darauf erscheint gekonnt dergemütliche Geruch von Brioche. Bemerkenswert ist das angenehmeGleichgewicht zwischen den Fruchtaromen, zurückzuführen auf dieTrauben, und den Röstaromen aus der Flaschengärung.Weingut: Veuve ClicquotRegion: ChampagneRebsorte: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot MeunierInhalt: 1,5 l Champagner - Sekt - Prickelndes > Frankreich > Champagne

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
