Champagne Veuve Clicquot Overview
+
A brand new release in 2017, Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old is made of reserve wines from the years 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010: chosen for their freshness, generosity and structure. Since Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV is a blend created year on year with expertise, Demarville wanted to create a champagne to render the multi-vintages vibrancy, depth and purity. All the reserve wines blended have been aged for a minimum of three years on the lees, in vats. To extend the ageing further, Extra Brut Extra Old NV spends another three years maturing after bottling and another year in the cellars post-disgorgement.

Demarville has said he has no intention for this Champagne to be a high-volume production commenting: "We cannot use all of the best reserve wines; we need them for Yellow Label." Hence only 30,000 bottles have been produced. The currently released batch were bottled in November 2013.

Tasting Note: An intense golden colour in the glass with a fine stream of tightly knit beads. Initial notes on the nose are rich and intense: ripe fruits and citrus. Powerful on the palate but balanced and smooth. Full of citrus with hints of apples and toastiness. A well-balanced minerality through the long-lasting finish. Exceptional. This has the characteristics to supplement a meal but due to the freshness could be served as an apéritif.

“47% Pinot Noir, 27% Chardonnay, 26% Meunier. Based entirely on reserve wines from 2010, 2009, 2008, 2006, 1996 and 1988 vintages with 90% of the blend made up of the first three vintages. Dosage 3 g/l. 4.5 bar.
Pungent and explosive on the nose. Very pure and focused, this actually smells more youthful than the Yellow Label based on the 2013 vintage. Tight and very zesty with the most impressive texture. Despite the high refreshment factor, there is nothing painful about this. The acidity is extremely well integrated. Super fresh. Well balanced and impressive.”

“Lovely colour bright, delicate gold twinkles, superfine flowing cordon of bubbles. Poised intensity of aromas/ flavours, greengage, peach and spiced lemon, a soupçon of liberating oak. Toasty finale.”
