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.

96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2000

Rich, multidimensional, highly aromatic nose of pear, red berries, apple, honey, toast and spice. Extremely rich and concentrated, with its medium to full body leavened by bright citrus notes and compelling minerality. Great inner-mouth aromas. Conveys an impression of powerful yet remarkably fine raw materials. The spicy finish offers exceptional persistence and richness.

Not a Favorite, but...

It's always interesting to drink "grande marque" Champagne from one of the larger houses. This, apparently is a current release, and it's what we drank to celebrate the millenium. This was a gift, and I'm not sure where the wine came from or how it was stored, but it seemed tired. I like a little more vibrancy in my bubbles.


About Champagne

Champagne-making is the highly refined art of blending base wines into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. These component wines come from different grape varieties (the white grape Chardonnay and the red varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and from different villages and vineyards. And because only four or five harvests per decade...
