Editorial Reviews for Veuve Cliqout Ponsardin Brut
With a slightly cheesy note on the nose that, along with the patissiere tones, recalls cheese Danish this offers good complexity with ample yellow fruit and floral tones. Classic Veuve on the palate, a touch sweet, soft, caressing and easy with plenty of yellow fruit in a somewhat simple package. 88pts
A good quality Champagne... but don't get caught in the marketing hype. Sometimes it can be extremely yeasty on the nose and palate. I prefer the French-market version, which you can find in magnums here in the US.
Rather nutty and slighty yeasty nose. I'm not a real Champagne fan, but this is one of my favorites - not too much yeast and not too acidic. I like it.
Acidic and fruity. Decent bubbles, but very soft.
Really smooth, plenty of small bubbles and a very nice sweet taste which goes down so easily.
Very nice brioche toast nose. Bright and lively dry fruits on the mouth, and green apple notes on the medium finish.
Crisp and bubbly...delicious!
This is a great Aperitif Champagne - not too rich and yeasty, but elegant, crisp and citrusy, wonderful with fried foods!
External Reviews for Veuve Cliqout Ponsardin Brut
As fresh as biting into a crisp green apple, this wine rounds out the firm, limestone-inflected acidity of Champagne with the fullness of its dosage. It’s not sweet, but it has the richness of a meringue, finishing tense and sparkly. For aperitifs.
The wine has a luminous color with radiant rose accents. The nose is elegant and generous, with initial aromas of fresh red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry, cherry and blackberry) leading to dried fruits and biscuit notes (almonds, apricots and brioche). On the palate, the fresh first impression is followed by a fruity harmonious sensation. In line with the style of the veuve clicquot house, the wine is perfectly balanced and combines elegance and personality. The wine works its magic - this delectable champagne is beautifully ample and full of charm. It is a delicious wine in early bloom, a rosé with character, wonderful as an aperitif to be shared as a twosome or with dear friends. Lovely floral and berry aromas segue into cherry and citrus flavors in this elegant, medium-bodied rosé. It has a fine texture and the flavors are persistent.
Medium straw color. Sweet apple and a loamy, musky quality on the nose. Thick, rich and earthy on the palate, with a sweet crabapple flavor that suggests apple brandy. A thick, weighty bottling with flavors of stewed rather than fresh orchard fruits. The earthy, musky quality carries through on the finish.
Demi-Sec is blended largely from Pinot Noir with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier as well as reserve wines. The liqueur d'expedition (carefully prepared and dosed with 45 g per litre by our oenologists) gives it a sweeter yet still very fresh
A full-bodied Champagne, this has been enriched by reserve wines to add depth and smoky lees intensity to its brisk, youthful elements. Itandrsquo;s a satisfying Brut to serve with poached prawns.
Food Pairings for Veuve Cliqout Ponsardin Brut
The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with asymphony of fruit tastes following on. Here is a true member of the powerful Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice note distinct. Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - forcefulness and finesse - and to hold them in perfect balance. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal.
