Champagne Veuve Clicquot Overview
+
The 1990 Vintage Reserve is a blend of 17 different Crus, all classified as Grand and Premier Crus. Black grapes make up two thirds of the blend: 56% Pinot noir, from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne, and 11% Pinot meunier, from the Premiers Crus in the west of the Montagne de Reims. The blend is completed with 33% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and, to a lesser extent, from the Montagne de Reims.

The nose is impressive for its intensity and great richness. From the first moments, the complexity and concentration are apparent with fruity aromas dominant. On the palate, creamy smoothness gives way to peach, lemon and pear, with a slight smoky tint. With twenty-three years post-vintage and five years post-disgorgement, 1990 is a testimony to the enduring power of a vintage.

Grape Varieties: 56% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 11% Pinot Meunier
Dosage: 8 g/L

“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.”

“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. Elegant, this shows lovely balance, a subtle bead and a delicate yet persistent freshness.”

“Mature, dried orange peel, sharp acid and very long finish, but the freshness is on its way out - drink up.”
