Veuve Clicquot Cave Privée 1989 Champagne

More vintages: 1990"Veuve Clicquot is a big house where we have a big responsibility to maintain the style, but every day we work to improve the quality." Chef de Cave, Dominique Demarville explains the production ethos behind Veuve's characterful, full-bodied, pinot-focused wines. Privileged to a respectable 382 hectare estate, with facilities to envy; including multiple foudres of 5000 and 7500 litres, the house runs a huge operation in Reims and Cave Privée is the result of a daring vision. It was born in the depths of Veuve's chalk cellars, out of intuition, passion, and also tenacity on the part of the oenologists. Year after year, they create and nurture fine vintages, taking care to respect and enhance the character of each one; Cave Privée is a unique collection of rare vintages meticulously selected by successive generations of cellar masters.

The 1989 Vintage Reserve is a blend from 25 different Crus, all classified as Grand and Premier Crus. Black grapes make up two thirds of the blend: 66% Pinot noir, from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne. The blend is completed with 34% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and, to a lesser extent, from the Montagne de Reims.

The weather conditions in 1989 were good, mild weather throughout much of spring with spells of frost damaging some vineyards. However, during the beginning of the summer months’ weather conditions improved and and the sunny conditions created good growing conditions. The harvest began early in the first and second week of September and the harvest was a good size.

A full flavoured and immediate structure provides a strong palate full of dried fruits with hints of spice leading to a lasting finish. The ageing potential for this vintage of Cave Privée is exceptional.

Grape Varieties: 66% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay
Dosage: 6 g/L

“Almonds, pastry and brioche are some of the notes that open up in 1989 brut Cave Privée. The warm, resonant style is hugely appealing. Hints of toast and spice add complexity in a Champagne of pure texture and breadth. This is another terrific showing from Veuve-Clicquot.”
