Veuve Clicquot Rich is a relatively recent addition to the Veuve Clicquot house’s range of labels. This champagne is made to be enjoyed over ice and a variety of garnishes at parties, bars or clubs instead of a cocktail. It can be served as a welcome drink at dinner parties or with dessert.
Veuve Clicquot Rich is vinified in the same way as the house’s Yellow Label, with a slightly lower content in reserve wines, relatively shorter maturation with yeast in the bottle and a selection of base wines with intensity and a richly fruity character. The goal is to create a fresh and aromatic champagne with a generous flavour. Its main difference from the house’s other champagnes is in the sweetness (dosage), which is 60 g of sugar per litre.
Veuve Clicquot Rich is a bracing champagne with a freshness and discreetly sweet and pleasant mouth. It is served in a large red wine glass with at least 5 ice cubes. It can be garnished with a large variety of fruit (lemon, lime, pineapple, melon), herbs (mint, rosemary) or even vegetables (cucumber, coloured peppers, celery).
