Slightly sweet for my taste, but enjoyable enough in the tropical weather this Christmas 2019 in Florida with my kids and my Dad. To my Delectable community - In Vino Veritas. Enjoy!

Emirates in flight Business Class Lounge.

Again, hoped for better but, just saw a bottle of 09 Dom fly by. I’ll be inquiring about that momentarily.

The VC is nice but, prefer more reductive champagne. Some bruised pear & apple, citrus blend, baked pineapple, brioche, ginger, cream soda, darker, large grainy minerals, gritty chalkiness, sharp acidity and 60% oxidized & 40% reductive, polished, rich finish.

It’s been a year sine I popped a Clicquot. Champagne House is judged on the quality of its Brut NV. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides structure, typically Clicquot, a touch of Pinot Meunier adds roundness & Chardonnay adds elegance. Light golden, complex aromas of stone and citrus fruits & 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.
