Champagne Veuve Clicquot Cave Privee 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

"This toasty, superbly mature wine is part of a series of releases featuring the house’s cellar-matured Champagnes. This emerges from the glass with complex flavors of almond, brioche, citrus and a hint of steeliness. The majestic richness of the wine has fully justified its decades of aging...97" WE 12/12 "Rich flavors and aromas of bread pudding and molasses mix with hints of baked peach, biscuit, ground ginger, fleur de sel and candied orange zest in this elegant bubbly, which shows lovely balance, a subtle bead and a delicate yet persistent freshness. Disgorged October 2008...94" WS 11/12

Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, many originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champagne region and are exceptional in size and quality. As in madame Clicquot's day, bottles age in the House's vast, vaulted cellars in Reims, portions of which were constructed some 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The remarkable Madame Clicquot (1777-1866) is considered one of the first business-women of the modern era. Widowed in 1805 at the age of 27, Madame Veuve Clicquot (born Ponsardin) defied every convention of the day to take the helm of her late husband's small Champagne House. She personally supervised cellar activities and introduced innovative production techniques still used today. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied Champagne. Read less

Tasting Notes:

An inmpresive nose that is intense and exceedingly rich, complex and concrentated from the start. Two types of fruit notes dominate: candied - almost cooked - friut and citrus fragrances.Hints of liqueur and candied citrus give the wine beautiful freshness.
