Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut Champagne Torn Label 1990
96 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Rich, multidimensional, highly aromatic nose of pear, red berries, apple, honey, toast and spice. Extremely rich and concentrated, with its medium to full body leavened by bright citrus notes and compelling minerality. Great inner-mouth aromas. Conveys an impression of powerful yet remarkably fine raw materials. The spicy finish offers exceptional persistence and richness.

A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1990 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Reserve 750ml
Wine & Spirits ReviewPale in color, with a strong influence of red fruit in the aromas, this is blended to a rich style. The texture is plush, the fruit sweet yet balanced by a robust architecture so it finishes clean. A generous wine for apertifs or to serve with roast fish.
A class act. This rosé puts delicacy, flavor, complexity and balance together for a great taste experience. It is dry, frim in texture and full of subtle cherry and spice flavors that linger on the finish. Best now through 2002.
Pale orange. Powerfully aromatic, spicy nose of raspberry, earth, pancetta and spices; quite Burgundian. Full-bodied, powerful and concentrated, with strong, ripe red berry flavors. Shows lovely sweetness of fruit in the middle but finishes adamantly dry. Strong acidity gives this young wine terrific grip and thrust.
Striking in flavor and profile. A graceful, well-toned rosé, full of berry, autumn leaves and spice notes enmeshed in a rich texture, all supported by lively acidity. Stylish and beginning to mellow, with a long aftertaste of berry confit. Drink now through 2006.
Tightly-packed with notes of citrus oil, orange rind, white peach, honeysuckle, and brioche, the medium to full-bodied 1996 La Grande Dame Brut should age well for 15-20 years. Crisp, fresh, and backward, it is another brilliant example from the exquisite 1996 vintage.
