Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin 1.5 litre, 12%
Each bottle contains: 50-55% Pinot, 15-20% Pinot Meunier, 28-33% Chardy, sourced from 50-60 crus, using between 25-40% reserve wines… hang on, why the vagaries? Because you stand or fall on your NV, you have to work with each varying vintage to come up with a consistent wine every year, one recognisable by Veuve fans the world over. No pressure, then? Yes actually, about five atmospheres' worth in each bottle.
