Review: *** $$$$ Veuve Clicquot Brut (Ponsardin), Champagne, France, non-vintage

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Veuve Clicquot Brut.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Among the two most ubiquitous, popularly-priced (but not cheap!) champagnes in the world are Moet Chandon and Veuve Clicquot.   Today, we will be trying the latter, opened in conjunction with a joyous family member homecoming. 

Original tasting and review : This is Veuve Clicquot Brut Ponsardin, Champagne, France, non-vintage, but kept in cellar for about four years.

In the glass: Clear, deep yellow with a hint of olive.

On the nose: Poured cool, shows shy nose with a hint of citrus. 

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft with a touch of yeast, showing clean and crisp with a light and slightly bitter finish.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
