Veuve Clicquot Rich Champagne 75cl
In the history of Champagne, wines that were blended for greater sweetness were customarily described as “Rich”. That is exactly what Veuve Clicquot has achieved here; producing a fresh and fruity, high dosage champagne with incredible versatility. To a large wine glass (rather than a champagne flute,) just add plenty of ice and your choice of a compliment - Grapefruit, Pineapple, Cucumber or Pepper - then top with Veuve Clicquot Rich and enjoy!
“Rich” harks back to the classic style of Champagne. As proven from the recent bottles found in the Aland Islands from the 1840’s, Veuve Clicquot originally had over 150grams of sugar per litre. Today Veuve Clicquot propels this tradition into the contemporary era with Veuve Clicquot Rich, a new champagne created in 2015, expressly to be combined with a selection of ingredients that bring out the mixologist - or the 'Clicquologist' - in anyone. With a higher dosage and a tailored blend of grapes, Veuve Clicquot Rich was born to invite enthusiasts to experiment according to their own tastes and customise their champagne experience.
Veuve Clicquot Cellar Master, Dominique Demarville, describes “sugar in champagne is like spices in a recipe, used correctly it can bring out specific aromas and play with taste". Veuve Clicquot worked closely alongside leading mixologists to select perfect ingredients that add a unique twist to this 'fresh approach' champagne. With a dosage of 60g/l, it is a 'doux' Champagne with an aging potential of 3 years.
