In 1810, Madame Clicquot broke new ground by creating the first vintage known in Champagne, a cuvee made up of grapes from a single harvest that was considered exceptionally good. The tradition lives on today, in the form of Veuve Clicquot Vintage. The year 2004 marks the 64th vintage made by the House. That year, the weather during the harvest was especially mild, ensuring the grapes were perfectly ripe and healthy with fruity and full-bodied Pinot Noir wines and elegant Chardonnays.
At first, elegant aromas of red berries (redcurrant and blackcurrant) and firm fruits (wild strawberry, red plum and cherry) dominate the nose. Scents of spring bring violet and lilac, while autumnal notes (dried fruit, Spanish membrillo and dried fig) slowly appear, with ground coffee or cocoa. Full and textured with a mellow finish (honey and almond), its structure is also fresh (licorice and aniseed). In the mouth, the intense fruitiness echoes the aromas. The finish is incredibly long.
