NV Veuve Clicquot - Brut Champagne

Price on Apr 20, 2014: $54.99


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. 

Wine Spectator   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.
