Moore in a moment

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Demi-Sec (Champagne) – As long as you don’t think of it as Champagne, it’s appealing (with the right food; in this case, prune-stuffed gnocchi with a foie gras-based sauce) and clean, seeming like coalesced sunshine in jar of sweet syrup that rests on a midsummer windowsill. (8/08)

Rare form

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin 1988 Champagne Brut “Rare” (Champagne) – Sweet and fruity, dominated by strawberry and lemon. It’s ripe but simple. Not much more to say, really; Veuve remains, for me, a disappointing house. All the more so for their popularity. (4/08)
