Veuve Clicquot Vintage 2012 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. Vintage 2008 is the perfect combination of power, freshness and finesse, and ends with an incredibly long finish.
