Veuve Clicquot 2015 Vintage 750ml

The story of Veuve Clicquot is one of audacity, creativity, and boldness. In 1810, Madame Clicquot invented the first ever vintage champagne, in 2015 Veuve Clicquot declared the 67th vintage of the Maison. Since then, the house has cultivated an art of ageing.

The predominance of Pinot Noir, produced exclusively from grapes selected from the Grand Cru and Premier Cru villages, provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot. Chardonnay brings the elegance and finesse of a perfectly balanced wine, while a small percentage of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend.

Veuve Clicquot’s Vintage collection is unique for its use of wines vinified and aged in large oak casks, which adds strength and aromatic intensity. The cask-aged wines bring an additional complexity with their spicy notes and subtle roast coffee and toasted aromas. This wine stands out for its elegance, tension and energy. The first impression is of its tension, verticality and minerality, after which the wine unfolds its aromas of toast, roasted coffee beans and praline. The excellent structure makes this a fine, upstanding vintage.

The nose offers citrusy notes of oranges, grapefruit and lemon zest, followed on the palate by an array of flavours from biscuit and dried apricot marmalade to dates, toasted almonds and honey-glazed hazelnuts. 

Alc: 12.5%
