Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old 3
The third Extra Brut Extra Old blend is composed of eight of the house’s most prestigious reserve wines from 1990, 1998, 1999, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Each brings its own unique qualities and flavors, and together they offer incomparable complexity and depth. Extra brut is a drier and more experimental style that showcases the champagne in its more pure state, with a lower dosage to allow the natural flavors and aromas of the blend to shine through.
On the eye: An exquisite gold color with exceptionally fine bubbles.
On the nose: Ripe fruits, Frangipane.
On the palate: The initial taste is powerful and smooth. That smoothness, another characteristic of the House, is supported by the lighter effervescence that often accompanies older Champagnes. After the initial taste, three qualities emerge: freshness, minerality and purity.
Intense and powerful, yet fresh and smooth, Extra Brut Extra Old’s flexibility and character makes it a beautiful adaptable wine, an ideal pairing for both light and rich flavor foods.
