Had this to celebrate our Anniversary last This Champagne House is judged on the quality of its Brut NV. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides structure, typically of a Clicquot, Pinot Meunier adds roundness & Chardonnay adds elegance. Light golden color, complex aromas of stone & citrus fruit & creamy biscuit. Tiny bubbles, light mousse, apple & orange flavors with raspberry tones, in a well balanced structure. The finish has plenty of toasty nutty yeast, clean and elegant on the long ending. Consistent!

My first time with this wine, I know, crazy. Been working in the wine business for years and this is my first Cliquot. Now I know what the hype is about. Super classic and yummy!

VCP...maybe it's over rated. But those tiny bubbles and consistent quality make this a go Champagne. Not overly sweet, plenty buttery and sophisticated...it always pleases.

Endless rosary of tiny bubbles, within a light golden straw color. Nice compromise on the nose between aromas of freshly made brioche and bread dough, and green apple, and citric acidity. The tangyness in this champagne es fenomenal. Great body to it, very harmonious and interesting composition. Great value for the price. Its acidity is really seductive and gracious. Very discreate orangy flavor on the ligering finish. 91 pts.
