    December 7, 2019 - Several Tastings today! (Minneapolis, MN): Solid on this N.V. effort with floral, dough, minerals, apple and lemon. Good acidity and medium finish. Drink now.

    December 1, 2019 - Better in the magnum than the 750s of VC that I've had in the past.

    December 1, 2019 - Round profile, more pinot-like than chard. Lacks the precision of better entry NVs at this price point, but not bad.

    November 27, 2019 - Nose is nice with mix of yellow fruits, fruit cake, angel food/white cake, mouth is noticeably sweeter for a brut, a bit diffuse, lacks purity, but many enjoyed this, crowd pleaser. Thanksgiving blind Champagne tasting.

    (NV Veuve Clicquot Brut) Current release. Sulphur on the nose here, which has a rather hard character. It has an attractive style on the palate, despite all the criticism that VC has come in for recently there are clearly some good points here. Nevertheless through the midpalate it is softer, plump even, with a touch of toffee. Rather creamy, rather feminine, if anything rather unfocused and a little too perfumed. There are better Champagnes on the market I feel.

    (NV Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut) An older bottle, from a stash Jonathan Dinh has had for a few years - cinnamon and nutmeg nose; very tasty, minerally, tart citrus palate with great acidity; medium-plus finish

    (NV Veuve Clicquot Brut) Current release. Lime leaves on the nose, oranges, smoky, and some sulphur. Soft, unfocused, creamy foamy style, peppery and sherbetty. Slightly bitter character too. Lacks precision and presence, fading away to almost nothing on the endpalate. Disappointing.

    (NV Veuve Clicquot Brut) Purchased in Spring 2001. This bottle has spent three years in the cellar - another example of ageing NV Champagne. It has a pale lemon-yellow hue with a very fine bead. Showing some maturity, with coffee notes, although also a background note of appley madeirisation betraying some early oxidation. Full, creamy, gently foaming on the palate. It still has some firm acidity, but also some nice coffee-toffee maturity - and that touch of madeirisation coming through from the back, but at this very low level I feel this adds complexity. Wouldn't appeal to all though.

    (NV Veuve Clicquot Brut) Purchased in early 2001. A couple of years ago it seemed that the quality of the Veuve Clicquot non-vintage Champagne seemed to have stumbled somewhat - the wines were overly acidic, foamy and disjointed. The house seems to have picked it's feet up, however, with this wine. It has a pale elegant colour. Still very primary on the nose, with aromas of ripe white fruits. The palate is a solid combination of firm acidity, toasty, white fruit and a creamy mousse. Some notes of maturity, coffee and nuts, and a good creamy mouthfeel. This wine is holding up tremendously well. With such firm acidity and emerging complexity this wine clearly needs more time in the cellar.

    (NV Veuve Clicquot Brut) The cuvée on the market at the time of tasting. A nose of white fruit, with some mineral and smoke elements. Good acidity combined with a fresh, sharp mousse on the palate. Fresh fruit flavours. A hint of creaminess to the texture, and just beginning to display some toastiness on the finish.

    October 2000 (link) 16 points

    (NV Veuve Clicquot Brut) Purchased Summer 2000. A pale golden colour, with only a few streams of tiny bubbles. Rich aromas of almonds and marzipan, yeasty dough and biscuits fill the air. On the palate, a moderately rich, creamy texture is balanced out by soft acidity. The mousse is gentle at first, and rapidly fades until its presence is barely noticeable, while the flavour profile builds into a yeasty finale. A lovely example of NV Champagne.
