Got a chance to taste through their lineup yesterday Fast so no detailed notes

Veuve Cliquot Rose - light salmon in color, fresh fruit nose, easy drinking but at these prices....I'd slow down just a bit.

Veuve Cliquot Rose Vintage 2004 - much more mineral driven than the NV, about 10g/l dosage but it did come off quite dry, delicous, and despite all the density of flavours, the core of a green apple is there.

Veuve Cliquot Vintage 2004 - much more structured and (now not rose) mineral driven, good energy/verviness, acidic, good bit on the palate.

Veuve Cliquote La Grande Dame - ahhh, an old friend, something I've been lucky to taste many times over and this one was probably better than all the other US ones that I'e tried through the years, still reasonably young with a ton of density. Lovely toasted Briooche, nuts, and green apple

Veuve Cliquot La Grande Dame Rose - Wow, what a trememdous step up from the vintage, this is all Grande Cru and it is drinkling well, very fresh and young still and fruit is now more towards black berry side.

Veuve Clicquot 1995 Magnum - this thing is FRESH, fresher than the 98, lots of structre, acidity, beauty of a balance, this was the wine of the night fo sure.

Veuve Cliquot Rose La Grande Dame 1998
