    Like every Veuve Clicquot vintage, the wine reflects the weather and the year’s climatology. The predominance of Pinot Noir in the 2012 Vintage, produced exclusively from grapes selected for the Grands Crus and Premier Crus, gives it the emblematic structure of Veuve Clicquot champagnes, while the proportion of Chardonnay brings the elegance and finesse of a perfectly balanced wine. A small percentage of Meunier completes the blend, enhanced by the use of  wines vinified and aged in oak barrels, thus bringing power and aromatic intensity to this cuvee.

    As all the Vintage cuvées, Pinot Noir dominates: it comes essentially from the South of the Montagne de Reims and the Marne Valley with Grands and Premiers crus such as Ambonnay, Bouzy, TauxiÚres, Avenay and Ay. Other crus from the northern slopes are also used: Verzy, Verzenay and Ludes. The Chardonnay comes essentially from the CÎte des Blancs with crus such as Mesnil sur Oger, Oger and Vertus, and finally the Pinot Meunier comes from the Montagne de Reims (Ludes) and the Vallée de la Marne (Dizy).
    To the eye

    A brilliant yellow colour with beautiful golden highlights.

    On the nose

    Aromas of candied lemons, roasted pears and green hazelnuts and almonds.

    In the mouth

    The attack is fresh and lively. The first fruit aromas appear, giving expression to the deliciousness of a mirabelle plum tart, candied lemons or even roasted pears. Then appear more refreshing notes of green hazelnuts and almonds.

    Food & champagne pairings
    Ideal operating temperature

    To appreciate all its finesse and aromas, champagne should be enjoyed chilled (but not iced). Depending on the cuvée, the ideal serving temperature is between 8 and 12°C.

    Potential of keeping

    Like all wines, champagne can be kept for varying lengths of time, depending on the type. Under optimal storage conditions, champagne can be kept for 1 to 2 years for Brut cuvées, and up to 4/5 years or even longer for vintage and prestige champagnes. Whatever happens, rest assured that you'll never be able to open your champagne too early, as the Champagne Houses only release their cuvées when they have reached perfect ripeness and are ready for immediate consumption.

    Assembly :
    51% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier.
    Vinification :
    Like each vintage, the wine reflects the weather and the year’s climatology. The predominance of Pinot Noir (51%), produced exclusively from grapes selected for the Grands Crus and Premier Crus, gives it the emblematic structure of Veuve Clicquot champagnes, while the proportion of Chardonnay (34%) provides the elegance and finesse of a perfectly balanced wine. A small percentage of Meunier (15%) completes the blend. The uniqueness of the Vintage collection at Veuve Clicquot lies in the use of wines vinified and aged in oak barrels (11%), thus bringing power and aromatic intensity. The wines aged in this way have the effect of enhancing the blend, like spices, giving it subtle toasted, woody and vanilla notes.
