Veuve Clicquot Brut NV
"92 points by Wine Spectator"
"90 points by Wine & Spirits"
Veuve Clicquot carries what is arguably the most famous label in champagne. It's legendary yellow label is like some sort of magnet for connoisseurs, or would-be connoisseurs. Good value for the price point.
Taste-wise, the Veuve carries flavours of citrus and hazelnuts, and the aroma of roasted bread and coffee, with a good volume of bubbles. That should be sufficient to keep your wine vocabulary fresh and impress friends. The champagne is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grapes.
What food goes with it
Champagnes are traditionally drank before a meal, or served continuously at finger food buffets and parties. Prawns, tempura, steamed crabs with ginger, Thai-style fish-cakes are all good pairing options.
Where is it made
One of the top names in champagne. Veuve is produced in Reims, France.
What is the wine's story
This iconic brand has been romanticized for her matriarch, the Madame Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin. A pioneering CEO, she trimmed the bloated Clicquot business empire of banking, and wool trading to focus on champagne, which of course was a masterstroke, laying the foundations for what the company is today.
Madame Clicquot also pioneered the process of riddling, that would allow all future champagne-makers to remove undesirable sediment from the production process. The practice would eventually gain adoption among all champagne producers, cementing her name in the history of bubbly forever.
Successful corporate restructuring, game-changing innovation, and driven by a woman who would defy Napoleon, the story is almost worth the entry price.
