RICH by Veuve Clicquot

July 27, 2015

I am not rich.

Veuve Clicquot is RICH!

Over the last 3 years something special has been resting in the Champagne region, and this month Veuve Clicquot is proud to introduce their new product to the market.

Last week myself and Mlle Fab, who was visiting from Montreal, were invited to an opulent tasting event at the beautiful Azuridge Resort to be the first in Alberta to taste RICH.

But unlike any other champagne in the world, Veuve Clicquot will have you sipping your bubbles very differently. 

RICH is meant to be served over ice AND with some delicious accompaniments.

While RICH sat in the cellar in France, the Parisian brand spent 2 years tasting & testing its best side kicks…

And what they settled on where 6 perfect pairings.

Peppers, cucumbers, pineapple, celery, grapefruit zest… And even steeped with earl grey tea.

The concept is not only incredibly unique, it’s also incredibly delicious.

And although the accompaniments will be easy to source… RICH, however will not be.

For example, in Calgary, AB, there will only be 1 retailer of this very exclusive and limited product (available at ZYN) as the total production of RICH is only approximately 2% of what Veuve Clicquot produces overall.

You’ll also be able to get RICH served to you at Azuridge, the only establishment with the privilege to serve it!

So what’s makes RICH so special and sets it apart from their classic yellow label?

Besides the higher sugar level: 60 grams per liter as opposed to the yellow labels 9 grams, it’s the trifecta of grapes.

45% Pinot Noir 

15% Chardonnay 

With the remainder being Pinot Meunier

In laymans terms;

A Rowdy deliciousness with a high level of sophistication! 

This is indeed the richest I’ve ever been.

And I liked it… A lot!
