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: 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 the weather improved and sunny days fostered good growing conditions. The harvest began early in the first and second week of September and the harvest was a good size. Wines from 1989 generally have incredible ageing potential.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Pinot Noir: Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne | Chardonnay: Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims
Grape Varieties: 66% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay
Ageing: 17 years on the lees
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: 2008-2025

Tasting Note: The colour is a strong gold. A full-flavoured and immediate structure provides a strong palate full of dried fruits with hints of spice leading to a lasting finish. Discreet notes of saffron, badian and
sandalwood persist. The ageing potential for this vintage of Cave Privée is exceptional.

“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.”
