A perfectly-built Champagne brand and now owned by LVMH, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin consistently produces well-balanced Champagne with obvious amount of dosage. The quality is indeed excellent and usually benefits with aging, giving solid biscuity complexity to the wine which is remarkable for the house style. Unlike the Yellow Label which has a huge production, the house produces a comparatively rare Vintage Champagne which is only produced when there is an epic vintage. The latest vintage they have released is 2008 after lying on the lees in the cellar for 7 years. Wine Advocate’s Stephan Reinhardt is certainly a fan of this champagne writing beautiful notes after tasting the vintage at the house in 2016 – “Honestly, I have never tasted better Champagnes from Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin than I did in March this year. The cuvées were as fresh as they were complex, and I left the company with a sense of wonder. If only they could export their perfect storing capacities! La Grande Dame is the star, but it won't do you any harm taste or re-taste one of the 13.5 million bottles of the Yellow Label. I was also impressed by the white Vintage Brut 2008.”
