Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is synonymous with the art of living. The House style distinguishes itself through the dominance of Pinot Noir which gives strength, complexity, and elegance to our wines.
Veuve Clicquot Vintage 2012 is the expression of a remarkable harvest, despite an extremely challenging climate.
Vintage 2012 displays a bright yellow color with reﬁned gold hints. The nose is fresh and delicate, with hints of dried apricots. Enhanced with grilled, toasted notes, the nose evolves toward complex aromas of ﬁgs, dried fruits, honey, trufﬂe, and mocha. On the other side, the wood brings soft spices of vanilla and nutmeg. On the palate, the wine delivers a fresh note. Then the aromas of fruits with candied citrus, and roasted pears appear, ending with refreshing notes of green hazelnuts and almonds. The structure, which is the signature of the vintage cuvée, is angular and complete, playing on the strong foundation of the Pinot Noir.
