Champagne & Sparkling Wine
N.V. Rosé Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Champagne, France
Toast and cream on the nose with a touch of cherry. Medium bodied
palate with more cherry as it came across as a little tart, with creamy
oak and a medium finish that left the mouth clean.
2002 Dom Perignon Moët et Chandon
Champagne, France
Nutty, dark caramel, green apple and pumpernickel bread. A dark
yeasty quality. Palate is really nice. Long finish with great balance and
2002 Cuvee Cristal Louis Roederer
Champagne, France
In 1876 Tsar Alexander II of Russia, fearing that a bomb hidden
behind the conventional green glass of a Champagne bottle might
be used to assassinate him, ordered Champagne to be produced
in a clear glass bottle and without the traditional bell-shaped base.
In order to ensure that this bottle shape was able to cope with the
pressure, it had to be manufactured from lead crystal, and hence
became known as Cristal. The wine itself is full-bodied and powerful
but balanced, fully deserving of its stellar reputation.
1998 Dom Perignon Rosé Moët et Chandon
Champagne, France
Light amber-pink in colour with a seamless combination of red berried
fruit, brioche, cream and marzipan notes with a surprising saline
element coming out on the back end. The mouthfeel here is just as
striking as the flavours themselves - it’s very polished and glossy with
a real lightness of touch and fantastic balance.
N.V. Brut Impériale Moët et Chandon
Champagne, France
Clear, very pale straw, small, active bubbles; very light, subtle aroma,
hints of lowers, vanilla grapefruit, yeast; light, mild mouthfeel; flavours
show fruit, toast, bread dough and yeast; excellent balance, slightly
tart; pleasant, flavourful aftertaste. A blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier

N.V. Brut Yellow Label Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Champagne, France
Clear, pale straw; very light, citric, apple, toast, butter and yeast
aromas; very expansive, full, with a rich, soft, creamy texture; clean,
light, gentle, wispy, faintly sweet flavours integrate fruit and yeast well;
well-balanced; lemony, yeasty flavours linger well in finish. A blend of
Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
