Champagne Veuve Clicquot Overview
+
Distinctive and powerful, each Veuve Clicquot vintage is the unique expression of a single harvest chosen for its remarkable quality and loyalty to the House style. Vintages with exceptional qualities and unparalleled ageing potential are carefully preserved for decades at the heart of Veuve Clicquot’s chalk cellars in Reims, making up the Cave Privée collection.

Weather: After a mild winter, bud burst was late but the vines proceeded to develop normally under very favourable climatic conditions. This was unexpected since the previous two vintages had produced little. Leading into the summer months conditions were great, some spells were concerning with attack of mildew and red spider mites. However, June and July overall allowed for very ripe grapes leading to a sunny and hot September. This was a record harvest that exceeded the famous 1970 vintage.

Tasting Note: A golden colour with reflections of amber. Initial notes on the nose are very positive, light and delicate with hints of dried fruits and candied citrus. The palate has refreshing citrus notes that combine with apricots and salted caramel to leave and long-lasting and memorable finish.

“The 1982 appears mature on the nose with oxidative notes predominating over the sweet, aged fruitiness of honey, spicy and fruit cake profile. The palate then again comes across much younger with good energy and positive liveliness to it. The structure is stylishly seamless with all pieces at place. Hopefully the oxidative note will mellow down over time as structure-wise this wine as plenty of life left.”
