Description & Technical Information
-
Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is a House steeped in rich history that owes its success largely to one woman, Barbe-Nicole Clicquot-Ponsardin. Madame Clicquot also invented the riddling rack on her kitchen table, an apparatus that removes the sediment from the bottle after second fermentation still used in the region today. Veuve Clicquot own a respectable 382 hectares of vineyards with an emphasis on Pinot Noir. The House maintains the largest collection of old reserve wines in Champagne, these help give Yellow Label its complexity while ensuring the high quality is maintained in the world’s second bestselling Champagne brand. In 2008 Dominique Demarville joined as Cellar Master, he “refreshed the brand” including increasing the proportion of Pinot Noir in La Grande Dame to 90%+ and with blending shifts he brought a new freshness in Yellow Label. In 2019 Didier Mariotti took over as Cellar Master.

A 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.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 47% Pinot Noir, 27% Chardonnay, 26% Meunier
Reserve Wine: 100%
Vintages: 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Disgorged: November 2017
Dosage: 3 g/l
Drink: Now for 5+ years

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.

Essi Avellan MW
“This new cuvée from Veuve Clicquot really shows off with the house’s impressive library of reserve wines. It is blended of only reserve wines with 2010 functioning as the base, complemented by the beautiful 2009, 2008, 2006, 1996 and 1988 vintages. What a delicious recipe and I am pleased to report it works in practise, too. There is such a complexity on the nose with brioche, toast, cream and tobacco alongside honey, apricot and yellow apple fruit. The brightness of fruit and nervosity delight on the creamy soft palate enjoying from slightly lower pressure in the bottle. Perfectly balanced between vibrancy of youth and ageing complexity. And the price tag is just as inviting as is the wine! (June 2016 disgorgement)”

Jancis Robinson MW
“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.”
95/100
Michael Edwards
“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.”
