Veuve Clicquot Brut Vintage 2008
In 1805, Madame Clicquot, a young widow of 27 years, took over the reins of the House founded in Reims in 1772 and became one of the first business women in history. Audacious and visionary, she made her Champagne known to the world Know How & Craftsmanship:
For over 200 years, the House has stayed true to its motto: ‘Only one quality, the finest’ A consistency in style: complex & powerful with Pinot Noir predominance. Veuve Clicquot is the style Champagne that radiates elegance vibrancy & edge with a unique yellow signature.
Sight: Its clear brilliant, gold colour lights up in the delicate tumult of fine bubbles produced by its persistent and remarkable effervescence.
Nose: The nose is fresh, refined and elegant. Fragrances of citrus fruit and stone fruits (peach, apricot) appear first, which are then enriched by delicate, warm notes of sweet pastries (almond, Mirabelle plum tart): a subtle alliance of freshness and fullness.
Palate: On the palate, the frank, lively and pure attack moves into a powerful, structured palate, delicately chiselled from the minerality of Champagne's chalky terroir.
The generosity of Pinot Noir's fruitiness resonates harmoniously with the freshness of the lightly candied citrus aromas (lemons) which are embellished in the finish with delicate hints of toasted notes and dried fruit (apricots).
Vintage 2008 is the perfect combination of power, freshness and finesse and ends with an incredible long finish.
