Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Brut 2015 Review
It is impossible to state how influential Madame Clicquot is to the Champagne industry as well as our enjoyment of this bubbly wine region. It is also impossible to briefly roll off her accomplishments. So, let’s just get to it. This is the latest vintage release of the Veuve Clicquot line of Champagne and does not disappoint. Slight hints of brioche with some candied pineapple or pear on the nose. That crystallized fruit is countered on the palate with extremely bracing acidity that calms the sweetness. The mouthfeel has a nice texture beneath the rapidly rising bubbles. It’s ready for a celebration or a huge plate of oysters.
