Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Vintage
James SucklingAttractive creamy pastry notes and pithy lemon citrus fruits on offer here. There’s also a gently nutty edge of autolysis, all locked in nice and fresh here. The palate’s bright, crisp and has attractive fresh lemon and peach-fruit flavours. It’s a really tidy and more chiselled vintage for this wine. Drink now through to 2020.
Wine SpectatorVery elegant, this is chiseled by racy acidity that’s swathed in the refined, creamy mousse and flavors of creme de cassis, preserved lemon, biscuit and dried apricot. Long and lacy on the smoke-tinged, minerally finish. Disgorged March 2015. Drink now through 2028. -AN
