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.  (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.
