Veuve Clicquot Rich
Veuve Clicquot Rich represents the innovative spirit of the French champagne house at its best. When more sugar is added to a champagne, connoisseurs are speaking about a "higher dosage" and use the French word "riche" to describe it.
The blend of 45 percent pinot noir, 40 percent pinot meunier, and 15 percent chardonnay will be available October 1 in Florida at $63 per bottle and will be in additional markets starting next year. It follows in the footsteps of Moët & Chandon's Ice Impérial, another bold Champagne designed to be combined with ice to cut its richness.
