Beautiful colour with straw-yellow highlights. Abundant fine bubbles. Intense, pleasant on the nose. Fruity at first, then hawthorn-flowery and slightly musky. Pleasant harmony on the palate, good freshness and liveliness. Lingering fruitiness: apple and pear.
Only one quality, the finest'. This is the motto of the House of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, founded in 1772.
The Champagne presents a fine balance between fruity aromas and more subtle toasty notes. Initial flavours of white fruits and raisins develop into notes of brioche and vanilla with bottle aging.
50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier, 28 to 33% Chardonnay
Founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot, the house was later taken over by his widow Madame Clicquot at the age of 27 in 1810. Through determination, intuition and acumen Madame Clicquot not only created the first recorded vintage in the champagne region but built up the Veuve Clicquot property to make it one of the foremost vineyards in all of Champagne
