Veuve Clicquot Rare Vintage 1988

SKU 0109


On the eye: Delicate, long-lasting bubbles. On the nose: Fine and complex, dominated by notes of dried fruits and flowers. The harmonious bouquet possesses a rare mineral elegance, with hints of toasted brioche. On the palate: Firm and well structured with plenty of body and refinement. To accompany: Rock lobster, scallops or saltwater fish. It also complements chicken and white meat; a rich sauce will be a perfect accompaniment to the vivacity of this remarkable vintage.

Wine SpectatorVigorous, this exhibits ginger, quince, biscuit and dried berry aromas and flavors. A lean thoroughbred, with bracing acidity, but the flavors are intense and persist through the lingering aftertaste. Still has time to give. Drink now through 2018.
