Natalie's Review

Veuve Clicquot Vintage Reserve Brut Champagne 2006, A.C., France: Vintages Wine Panel: Veuve Clicquot is an early example of women succeeding in business. In 1805, 27-year-old Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin took over the operation of this famous house after the untimely death of her husband. This bubbly is a fine tribute to this brilliant woman with its rich aromas of white blossoms, lemon and apricot. The creamy mouth-feel, complex fruit, citrus and mineral flavours lead to a long, luxurious finish. A winner with shellfish, or cellar it 6-8 years. My note: A robust and muscular Champagne that leads with Pinot Noir in its blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. A consistently good producer with a brand that has come to symbolize celebration. This wine is part of the Vintages Essentials Collection. 508614 12% D 750 mL  $92.95 Score: 90/100.
