Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne is one of the common champagnes people turn to when in celebratory mood.
It was awarded 92 points by Wine Spectator and 90 points by Wine & Spirits. Here are their tasting notes:
Wine Spectator – “Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note. Drink now through 2022. (12/ 2012)”
Wine & Spirits – “There’s a tight, floral raspberry essence at the center of this wine, its fruitiness held by brisk, flinty acidity that keeps the finish mouthwatering. A firm wine for poached salmon. (12/ 2011)”
A 750 mL bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne is priced at $42.99.
Item number 85684.
Inventory and pricing at your store will vary and are subject to change at any time.
Veuve Clicquot is available in many places and they do sometimes go on sale. I think the sale price may be better than at Costco (?).
