The Vintage Rich 2004 is made up of 55% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier and 35% Chardonnay. The blend includes 17 crus only, which are either Grand or Premier Crus. The 2004 vintage has a pale gold colour with silver accents. It has a brilliant aspect and effervescence is lively and long-lasting.
At first, freshness immediately predominates hints of citrus fruits coming to the fore. As the wine is agitated, fruitier aromas, including winter cherry, mirabelle plums and grapefruit, follow, accompanied with a subtle hint of white flowers.
After a few more minutes of aeration, typical 'Veuve Clicquot' notes of dried fruit (almonds, hazelnuts) and pastries (brioche, marzipan) take the lead, crowned by a veil of sweet spices like vanilla.
In the mouth the wine is lively and firm, yet soft and velvety and the flavours confirm the wealth of notes perceived on the nose, with spicy fragrances resulting from the dosage. This elegant, well-balanced wine will delight the palate for at least the next 15 years.
