VEUVE CLICQUOT VINTAGE 2004 750ML
- Sparkling > Champagne
The nose is fresh, refined and elegant. Fragrances of citrus and stone fruits (peach, apricot) appear first, which are then enriched by delicate, warm notes of sweet pastries, (almonds, Mirabelle plum tart): a subtle alliance of freshness and fullness. On the palate, the frank lively and pure attack moves into a powerful, structured palate, delicately chiseled from the minerality of Champagne’s chalky terroir. The generosity of the Pinot Noir’s fruitiness resonates harmoniously with the freshness of the light candied citrus fruit aromas which, in turn are embellished in the finish with delicate hints of toasted notes and dried fruit. 2004 was a fantastic vintage and the extra bottle age is showing beautifully here.
