Tart lemony nose (lemon drops). Very sharp and precise. Yeasty nose. Less fruit than the Grand Dame wines it was tasted against (although it was 1/3 the cost). Very crisp, and tasted like a Chardonnay dominated blend, even though it was 70% Pinot Noir.

Has a fantastic nose of armagnac and brandy - really intense and intriguing. This is a powerful wine. Very crisp, clean and tart, with lemon flavors and a really racy finish. Very nice.

Razor sharp and crisp, this bubbly is heavy on the citric notes, but i felt pleasantly so. you just have to be in the mood for this type and taste. still, as mentioned earlier, this was less fruity than the Grande Dame, but for much much less cost...


Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: The effervescence of the Rare Vintage 1988 is both delicate and long-lasting. The bouquet is fine and complex, strong in the aromas of dried fruits and flowers. There is an elegant harmony in the nose around toast and brioche notes. Composition: This Vintage is made up from twenty villages; all classified as Premiers or Grands Crus. They are located in the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims regions. 68% Pinot Noir 32% Chardonnay The Rare Vintage 1988 was disgorged in November 2005 after 17 years of cellaring at the Veuve Clicquot Maison. Occasion: Rare Vintage 1988 goes well with lobster, scallops and fish. After a few years of aging, the wine would go well with poultry and with meat dishes such as veal as well.
