Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne 3,000ml - Jeroboam LUMINOUS
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."Dec 2012
Bettane & Desseauve: "A round and fairly deep champagne, with a certain suppleness which gives it an almost universal character. Dosage is not noticeable." 2011
La Revue des Vins de France: "This wine has a structure and flavor that are better than the average brute from the mainstream wine trade. And yet it is also completely devoid of flabbiness as the "malls" are carried out on pinot grapes harvested on the crunchy side of ripeness." Jan 2012
Winery: "The strength of this golden-yellow wine is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes on the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to age in the bottle. Brut Carte Jaune offers a perfect balance of finesse and forcefulness."
