Veuve Clicquot is one of those champagne labels that denotes quality. It’s one of my favourites along with Pol Roger & Bollinger – at this price however it is only for very special occasions…
Tasting notes: Notes of red fruits. Biscuity, brioche, stonefruit and almond elements on the palate. Elegant – but not overly delicate; this had bite & body! Persistent, fine mousse. Delicious!
