To the eye, a bright yellow colour with refined gold hints. Aromas of candied citrus, roasted pears, green hazelnuts and almonds.
On the palate, the attack is fresh and frank. Then appear the first aromas of fruits with mirabelle tart, candied citrus and roasted pears notes. Finally, refreshing notes of green hazelnuts and almonds arise.
In 1810, Madame Clicquot invented the first Vintage Champagne, in 2015 Veuve Clicquot declared the 66th vintage of the Maison.
With grapes exclusively from Grands and Premiers Crus, Pinot Noir dominates the blend (51%) and provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, followed by Chardonnay (34%) that adds finesse and elegance essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and then Meunier (15%) that rounds out the blend. The uniqueness of the Vintage 2015 lies in the addition of 11% of wines aged in large wooden casks (foudres), bringing strength and aromatic intensity. The cask-aged wines act as spices to the blend, bringing very lightly woody, vanilla and toasted aromas.
Pairs perfectly with any light seafood dish.
