Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut 2012 Champagne 750ml
With grapes exclusively from Grands and Premiers Crus, Pinot Noir dominates the blend, followed by Chardonnay that adds finesse and elegance essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and then Meunier that rounds out the blend. The uniqueness of the Vintage 2012 lies in the addition of 11% of wines aged in large wooden casks, bringing strength and aromatic intensity. The cask-aged wines act as spices to the blend, bringing very lightly woody, vanilla and toasted aromas.
Tasting note: Candied citrus, roasted pears, green hazelnuts and almonds.
Food pairing: Veal, crawfish, smoked scallops.
