Description

This is the third release of Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old after the original release back in 2017. This is a "multi-vintage" from reserve wines from the years 1990, 1998, 1999, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2014! Selected for their freshness, generosity and structure. Since Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV is a blend created year after year with expertise, the cellar master at the time, Demarville, wanted to create a Champagne to give multi-vintage new life, depth and purity. All the blended reserve wines have been aged for a minimum of three years in tank on the lees and to extend the aging even further, Extra Brut Extra Old spends another five years maturing in bottle on the lees and another year in the cellar after disgorging. It has a lower pressure of 4.5 bar pressure, where as the standard is 6 bar, this lower level gives a softer mousse much gentler on the palate.

Demarville has said that he does not intend for this champagne to be a high-volume production, commenting: "We can't use all the best reserve wines; we need them for the Yellow Label." Therefore, only 30,000 bottles have been produced.

Tasting notes: An intense golden color in the glass with a fine stream of closely knit pearls. It is rich and intense, the ripe tropical fruits and citrus and apple and underlying spice. The palate shows the magic of this blend, there is freshness and ripeness with hints of fresh apples and underlying toastiness with a velvety texture. A well-balanced minerality through the long-lasting finish.
