A chance to taste the new releases from Veuve Clicquot, both of which are really impressive. Caveat: these bottles had been open for a while.
The Vintage 2004 is quite deep coloured, and has lovely concentration of citrus fruit with some richer, toasty notes. Really great balance here, with quite powerful flavours. Lovely intensity. 93/100
The Vintage Rose 2004 has quite a deep pink/cherry red colour, with some orange notes. It’s rounded on the palate with nice fruitiness – subtle cherry and plum notes with a bit of toasty savouriness. Very appealing. 92/100
