Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brut Vintage 2004

Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brut Vintage 750ML 2004          
Sku: 13375

A perfect balance, founded on the strength of Pinot Noir, rounded by a touch of Pinot Meunier and balanced with the freshness of Chardonnay.

(62% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 8% pinot meunier; LLRAWB 00589): Light, bright gold. Ripe citrus fruits, pear, honeysuckle and minerals on the nose, with a touch of vanilla adding depth. Juicy, penetrating orchard and citrus fruit flavors show very good depth and become spicier with air. Closes sappy and long, with lasting ginger and floral nuances.

A vibrant version that shows lovely harmony, swathing the palate in satiny texture and a delicate mesh of poached pear, chopped almond, biscuit and white raspberry flavors. A lasting note of smoky mineral echoes on the finish. Drink now through 2027. -AN

The dominantly tart apple character of Clicquot’s 2004 Brut makes for a piquant and invigorating if somewhat raw overall impression, incorporating as well overt yeastiness and hints of almond, apple pip, and lemon rind. Insofar as there are impressions here that I would deem “mineral,” these are a faintly sweaty and slightly metallic note in the finish, which manage to fit the wine’s brash personality. I don’t fancy this gaining from bottle age, though I readily confess my lack of experience with older representatives.

Wine maker notes
A blend of seventeenth Premiers and Grands Crus, the Vintage has the power of Pinot Noir, balanced by the finesse and elegance of Chardonnay. It is the perfect expression of the House style, proving that champagne can be a great wine and, as such, makes a perfect accompaniment for many dishes, developing its qualities as the years go by. It goes well with spiny lobster prawns, scallops and sea fish as well as poultry and white meat.
