Veuve Clicquot, Brut, Champagne, 2012
(at London, SE26, 30 Oct 2021)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2027
An immediate perfume of soft golden apples dipped in yoghurt, with creamy, leesy, toasty characters bubbling away underneath. It’s very creamy in the mouth and has a little hint of cream cheese. Wait a beat and apple pie and cinnamon come through. The finish is only medium, but has a pleasant zippy lemon tart freshness. The 66th vintage from Veuve Clicquot, 2012 was particularly favourable weather-wise.
15% Pinot Meunier
