Tasting notes for the Grande Dame - Veuve Clicquot vs Yayoi Kusama 2012
- EYE: This champagne adorns itself with an intense, luminous, and sparkling golden yellow robe. Its bubbles are fine and delicate.
- NOSE: The bouquet is rich and complex. Aromas of white-fleshed fruits such as pear and ripe peach blend harmoniously with notes of exotic fruits, citrus zest, and buttery brioche. Delicate floral touches enhance this enchanting olfactory experience.
- MOUTH: The attack is lively and fresh, giving way to a creamy and velvety texture. The effervescence is remarkable. Flavors of fruits unfold with elegance, accompanied by nuances of honey, toasted almonds, and spicy notes. Balanced acidity brings a delightful liveliness, while the persistent finish leaves a pleasant sensation of minerality in the mouth.
In short: This Grande Dame "Veuve Clicquot vs Yayoi Kusama" 2012 produced by the famous Maison Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin is an incredible collaboration between the champagne brand and the Japanese contemporary artist. This is a work of art that deserves to be tasted. It pairs wonderfully with refined dishes such as seafood, truffle-infused poultry, or dishes with exotic flavors. As for its aging potential, this champagne can be enjoyed now for its freshness, but it also has the potential to age for another 10 to 15 years under appropriate conditions.
