2015 Champagne Veuve Clicquot Vintage Blanc
Veuve Clicquot was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Murion, but became famous through the continuation of the company by his son's widow ('veuve') Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, in 1805. She was a formidable and innovative woman. Her motto 'only one quality, the finest' is still guiding for Veuve Clicquot, the second largest champagne house in the world. Madame Clicquot, La Grande Dame, has created many groundbreaking innovations in the champagne world such as the first rosé and first vintage champagnes. The 'pupitre' is also her invention; In this table with slanting holes, the bottle could be placed in such a way that by regularly turning, the rémuage, the yeast sediment sinks towards the neck. The champagnes have a full, rich and powerful character.
Champagnes are often made by blending various vintages and in this way the good houses try to produce consistent quality. If a vintage was very beautiful and becomes even more complex due to additional aging, it is called a vintage champagne and the champagne is also given a vintage. In this case this applies to the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Blanc from the year 2015.
The 2015 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Blanc is the successor to Vintage 2002, 2004 and 2008, 2012 and is therefore the fifth Vintage champagne from Veuve Clicquot in this decade. It has an blend of approximately 51% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. For the first time since the 1960s, oak barrels have been used to mature a small part (5%) of the wine. The grapes in this champagne come from just 17 vineyards, all of which are Premier or Grand Cru classified. With a dosage of 8 grams per liter and years of maturation, this is a great champagne and is also packaged in a beautiful gift box. In the glass the wine has a clear, fresh color with a golden sheen. In the nose we smell aromas of citrus and roasted pear with hints of roasted nuts. On the palate, the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Blanc 2015 is subtle and mineral with a fruity, tight aftertaste. Delicious with dishes with fish, crustaceans and shellfish
