2004 Veuve Clicquot "Gold Label Reserve" Brut Champagne

SKU #1040405 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* One of the best vintages since the great 2002, this is a sophisticated, fruit- and yeast-driven wine. It has a delicate touch, with its white fruit flavors well integrated into the toasty and tangy texture. It will age for many more years.  (9/ 2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

 This fresh Champagne offers a lively bead and a smoky, mineral-tinged base note. Flavors of poached apple and pear, dried cherry, bread dough and lemon zest lead to a finish of good intensity and length. Very zesty. Drink now through 2022.  (12/ 2012)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 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.  (12/ 2012)

K&L Notes

In exceptional vintages Veuve Clicquot also produces a small amount of vintage wines. Gold Label Reserve was produced in 2002, preceded by 1999, and so on. The final cuvee will vary to reflect the character of the vintage, but the traditional blend is about 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay, with a tiny amount of Pinot Meunier to round things out. Look for signature Clicquot power and poise, with added richness and intensity in this 2004 vintage production.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
