Veuve Clicquot Extra Old Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old is made only of reserve wines, from the years 1988 , 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010, chosen for their freshness, generosity and structure. Dominique Demarville created this blend to capture the spirit of Yellow Label, rendering it with a vibrancy, depth and purity.According to the tradition of the House, and reflecting its long history of blending expertise, the wines in Extra Brut Extra Old have been aged a minimum of three years in vats, on the lees. Another turn of aging comes in Extra Brut Extra Old bottles, which mature in the cellars for another three years before disgorgement.Reflecting the full-bodied richness of the reserve wines in Extra Brut Extra Old, the blend receives only a very low dosage of 3g/L. The resulting wine shares with Yellow Label its complexity and cleanless, richness and freshness, brought into an even clearer relief.

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
