Veuve Clicquot is one of those champagne labels that denotes quality. At £59 a bottle, however it is only for very special occasions… I reviewed their rose champagne here.
Tasting notes: Biscuity, aromas of lemon, dried apricots, peach and pastry. Notes of almond on the palate, a hint of oak. This also had bite as it’s predominantly pinot noir. Elegant. Persistent, fine mousse. Delicious!
