Veuve Clicquot Brut is one of the absolute classics of the Champagne region.
Made from a blend of grapes coming from more than 50 plots, most of them qualified as Grand Cru, this non-vintage sparkling wine is made from Pinot Noir (50-55%), Chardonnay (28-33%), and a tiny portion of Pinot Meunier.
Pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.
Aromas of apples, pears and citrus, nicely combined with notes of butter, pastry, dry fruit, jasmine and fennel.
Veuve Clicquot Brut is smooth and silky, displaying creamy notes of pastry, toast, ripe white fruit, aniseed and citrus. Bubbles are wonderfully integrated, acidity is crisp and finish is medium-long, leaving some remembrances of white fruit and dry fruit.
