Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old Series 2 Champagne 750ml - 12916
Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is synonymous with the art of living. The House style distinguishes itself through the dominance of Pinot Noir which gives strength, complexity and elegance to our wines. Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old is blended exclusively from reserve wines. Series 2 is made only from reserve wines from 1990, 1998, 1999, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012. Those reserve wines were aged at least 2 years in vats selected for their unique characteristics of freshness and aromatic complexity. A double ageing process and a very low dosage, Extra Brut Extra Old is Veuve Clicquot mixing the best of history. Extra Brut Extra Old 2 bestows an exquisite gold color with exceptionally ﬁne bubbles. The initial nose is impressively open with elegant aromas of candied citrus. Upon being released, the wine unveils a beautiful aromatic richness and with almond paste and acacia honey notes. On the palate, the attack is fresh and silky. The aromatic palette reaches records: very ripe fruits, frangipane, licorice… This wine impresses with its amplitude and balance. The effervescence is light with a low pressure, which participates to this reﬁned silky texture. The ﬁnale is particularly long and promising. Serve at a temperature of 46° to 50°F. Extra Brut Extra Old 2 can be enjoyed now and up to 2034.
