Veuve Cliquot Vintage 2008

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!

Wine Colour – White
Price – £59 – Tesco has the 2012 for £50
Current Vintage – 2008
Producer – Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Grape – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Region/Country – Champagne, France.
Verdict – Very good

Food Pairings – this worked brilliantly with smoked salmon/soured cream on blinis
