Veuve Clicquot Vintage Reserve Bottle 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: '2002 is proving to be the finest Champagne vintage since 1996, more redolent<br/>of 1995 or 1990 in terms of the ripeness of fruit and power of structure. The<br/>Veuve Clicquot style, with Pinot Noir in the ascendent, is eminently suited to<br/>this vintage; the result is poised, powerful and harmoniously balanced.' <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR-Buyer)

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
