Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Sec Vintage Rich Champagne 1999

Member Review by colinrchorley:

All I can say about this is wow. I've not had a sec Champagne before, it always been brut but I hope this is a typical example of a sec as I will be coming back to this style more. So sweet and soft, none of that sharpness that you can sometimes get. More fruity than normal brut, more apple and kiwi but still maintaining that brioche quality. Amazing bottle.

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
