The Clicquot Traveller is designed to hold your
most chic travel companions: two custom designed
Champagne flutes and a 750ml bottle of Veuve
Clicquot Yellow Label. Not only is the Traveller...
As a longtime drinker of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, I knew the quality of the wine and was not disappointed. On the other hand, I was very disappointed with the quality of the flutes. I bought this package as a gift and the stem on one of the flutes broke before I could even get it to my recipient. (stems are too thin)
I am a HUGE fan of Sauvignon Blancs and have to admit that I really wanted to like this one as well with its 93 pt rating. However, the wine's taste was pretty boring and unimpressive. The wine also had an odd slight carbonation to it with many small bubbles that persisted throughout the bottle. Maybe I just got a bad bottle, but wanted to let everyone know.
My wife and I discovered this wine 3 years ago and have loved every vintage since. We have always loved this wine because of its crisp, light, grapefruity, and earthy taste. It is very pleasantly different from other Sauvignon Blancs out there and is GREAT for summer. Always a great value, this year's vintage is not quite as good as last year's (as the professional ratings indicate) but it is still VERY worth your time.
