Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old
From the Maker:
"True to its expertise in the Art of Blending, Veuve Clicquot enriched its Extra Brut Extra Old collection in 2021 with a new cuvée composed of 8 years selected among its remarkable reserve wines: 1990, 1998, 1999, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013, and 2014.
A precise Champagne made for wine lovers, this new wine is matured twice. First in vats on fine lees for several years, then in cellars for a further three years before disgorgement, giving it its texture and aromatic complexity.
On the nose, Extra Brut Extra Old 3 reveals aromas of white flowers, citrus fruits (lemon), white fruits and opens with notes of bread dough and orange peel. The first sip reveals a great freshness on the palate, then comes the complexity and depth. Extra Brut Extra Old 3 has an aging potential of more than 15 years and brings all the precision and liveliness of a rare and complex Champagne."
About the Maker:
Veuve Clicquot, now one of the largest Champagne Houses, was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot under the label "Clicquot". After establishing the brand throughout Europe, Russia and the United States, Philippe was joined by his son, François Clicquot, at the head of the House in 1798. Seven years later, following his untimely death, François’ young widow, Barbe Ponsardin, took over the family business at just 27 years old. The House would subsequently be renamed in her honor: ‘Veuve Clicquot’ means ‘The Widow Clicquot.’
