Veuve Clicquot Silver Fridge


The Veuve Clicquot Metal Fridge includes 1 bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut NV 75cl presented inside the silver Veuve Clicquot Fridge metal gift box.

New Release in July 2013 
 
Tasting Notes: 
A beautiful golden-yellow colour, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. The nose is initially reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the ageing in the bottle.

 

The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following on. Here is a true member of the powerful Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice note distinct.

 

A blend of 50 crus, mainly Grands and Premiers Crus, go to the blending of Brut Yellow Label. Consistent quality due to 25% to 35% of reserve wines.

 

Traditionally the proportion of each grape variety used is:

- 50 to 55% Pinot Noir

- 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier

- 28 to 33% Chardonnay

 

These figures vary slightly from year to year according to conditions. The Cellar Master has to achieve the total consistency of taste, which makes Brut Yellow Label so immediately recognisable, so utterly reliable both in terms of quality, colour and bouquet.

 

Background Information:

 

In 1772, Philippe Clicquot founded a wine-making business under the name Clicquot. In 1798, his son François, who had taken over the family enterprise, married Barbe Nicole Ponsardin. At the time of François' death in 1805, the young 27-year-old widow decided to continue her husband’s legacy. A woman of vision, she became the driving force behind the prestige and success of the brand, which in 1810 was renamed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin.

Ever in pursuit of excellence and innovation, in 1816 Madame Clicquot invented the riddling table with the aim of obtaining clarified champagnes of unrivalled quality. She became known by her contemporaries as the "Grand Dame of Champagne", in recognition of her audacity and determination. Row by row, Madame Clicquot used her skills to develop an exceptional wine-growing territory, consisting of 515 hectares in the heart of the Champagne region’s finest vineyard estates.

The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine.

 

The Veuve Clicquot Silver Fridge is this year’s instalment in Veuve’s ongoing series of collectable cool boxes. The box features the brand’s logo and a handle in the style of a retro refrigerator and is available in a chrome silver colour.
 
The Veuve Clicquot Fridge not only looks striking and stylish but will also keep a chilled bottle cool for up to two hours. The insulated case can be kept and re-used, keeping your Veuve Clicquot at a perfect drinking temperature on picnics and at parties over the summer and beyond.
