Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut 2012 is a sparkling wine from Champagne produced by Maison Veuve Clicquot. The dominance of Pinot noir and the touch of oak deliver structure and character, a trademark of the Veuve Clicquot style.
The Pinot noir comes exclusively from Grands and Premier Crus of Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne. The Chardonnay comes entirely from the Côte des Blancs. The Meunier comes from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne.
The uniqueness of the Veuve Clicquot Vintage collection remains in the addition of wines aged in large oak barrels, which provides strength and aromatic intensity.
Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut Tasting Note
Bright yellow colour with golden hints.
Fresh, delicate and saline. The aromas of juicy, candied or dried apricots set the tone. Then toasted grilled notes appear and the nose evolves towards complex aromas of figs, dried fruits, honey, truffle and mocha, giving the wine its breadth. The wood, on the other hand, brings soft spices of vanilla and nutmeg.
The attack is fresh and frank. Then the first fruit flavours appear with mirabelle tart, candied citrus and toasted pear notes. Finally, refreshing notes of green hazelnuts and almonds emerge. Great balance with a beautiful liveliness on the palate and refined pastry notes.
