Mouth-filling but fresh, not only Veuve's label is crowd-pleasing but the style too is all things to all people and full of everything good - full fruit (pear and citrus), full yeasty flavours, a creamy mouthfeel and vibrant but not harsh acidity. Veuve continues to be the no-brainer of Champagnes, and rightly so.

Overview

Grape

Typically 50-55% Pinot Noir, 15-20% Pinot Meunier, and 28-33% Chardonnay

Its Origins

Philippe Clicquot-Muiron established Veuve Clicquot in 1772. However, it was Phillipe`s daughter-in-law, Nicole-Barbe Clicquot, who really laid the foundations of the modern company. She was one of the great innovators - it was she who invented remuage in the early 19th century. Now it is part of the LVMH group. The Non-Vintage Brut is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. It has a nose of white fruits and freshly baked bread and is fresh and balanced on the palate. The vintage wines are similar in character but with more depth of fruit and more structure. La Grande Dame, first made in 1969, is a rich, smooth and finely textured Champagne that simply oozes class and breeding. Beginning with the Bouzy vineyards that originally belonged to founder Philippe Clicquot, the Veuve vineyards now cover 393 hectares of land, spread over the very best Champagne growing areas: 12 of the 17 Grands Crus, and 18 of the 44 Premiers Crus.

What The Critics Say

Parker's Wine Advocate, Antonio Galloni

"The NV Brut offers up attractive notes of smoke, tar, rich ripe pears and flowers in a medium to full-bodied style."
