When an occasion calls for Champagne it's important to avoid substitutions and to uncork something worth savoring. No Champagne is as recognized or as eagerly toasted as Veuve Clicquot. A blend of mostly Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, with close to a third of Chardonnay, this iconic Champagne boasts fresh aromas of quince and baked apple along with lively citrus flavors and a silken texture that invites another sip. This crowd-pleasing bubbly is easily enjoyed on its own and shines when paired with savory delicacies such as caviar or smoked salmon rosettes.
Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note. Drink now through 2022.
