Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin 2012 Vintage Brut Champagne 75cl

100% of 100

In 1810, Madame Clicquot invented the first Vintage Champagne, in 2012 Veuve Clicquot declared the 66th vintage of the Maison. Vintage 2012 is the expression of a prodigious harvest, despite an extremely challenging climate throughout the year.

With grapes exclusively from Grands and Premiers Crus, Pinot Noir dominates the blend (51%) and provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, followed by Chardonnay (34%) that adds finesse and elegance essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and then Meunier (15%) that rounds out the blend. The uniqueness of the Vintage 2012 lies in the addition of 11% of wines aged in large wooden casks (foudres), bringing strength and aromatic intensity.

On the nose: Aromas of candied fruits, roasted pears and green hazlenuts. On the palate: Fresh and strong, with notes of white flowers & citrus fruits. Vanilla & light smoky notes are also present.
