Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old
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.
Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old is made only from reserve wines from the years 1988, 1996, 2008, 2009, 2010, chosen for their freshness, generosity and structure.
Tasting Notes: Reveals an Intense colour, with flashes of gold. Upon being released into a glass, its very fine bubbles create a delicate necklace.
The nose is impressively intense with richness and dimension. Ripe stone fruits and delicate yeast can be detected alongside candied citrus, rounded off by the toastiness.
On the palate, the attack is powerful and smooth, the smoothiness which is another prized characteristic of the house is supported by the lighter effervescence that often accompanies older Champagnes.
