1996 Veuve Clicquot Brut Vintage Reserve

$73CAD

This often referred to as their "Gold Label" Vintage Reserve.

Needed to breathe ~ 30 minutes to open up. Multiple streams of fine bead. Aromas of cream, Granny Smith apple, citrus, walnuts, and bread dough. Delicious mouthfeel. Medium-bodied with Granny Smith apple, citrus, nuts, and creaminess as it opens. Long, long finish that lasts over a minute with nuts and Granny Smith replays. Still very, very youthful, showing its primary flavours. Cellar 5+ years to get the most out of this wine. 91 points (12/24/2003).
