About Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, but it was his daughter-in-law, Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin who would catapult it to greatness. The empire that Madam Clicquot built now includes 360 hectares of vines, including 12 of the 17 Grand Crus in Champagne.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2004
($85) Pale orange-pink. Aromas of candied raspberry and nut skin, with a suggestion of some mature juice. Ripe and vinous, with red berry flavors complicated by a nutty nuance. A fairly large-scaled, rich dinner-table Champagne with an oily texture but also good cut, and plenty of breadth on the lingering back end.
