Veuve Clicquot, Vintage Brut 2008
2008 was a gorgeous year for Champagne! The resulting wines are intensely fruity with exciting potential for aging! This bottle, by Veuve Clicquot is showing lively fruit flavour and lovely minerality! Veuve Clicquot mature a small portion of the wines for their vintage labels in oak casks. These wines make up 5% of the final blend, adding vanilla and subtle toasted woody spice notes. If you can wait a year or so, leave this somewhere dark and cool, and hidden sensations will be revealed!
In addition to more than doubling its production, Veuve Clicquot changed a lot in 15 years. Since end of 1990, the Champagne House has presented striking and inimitable style with great consistency. The 2008 Vintage transcends Clicquot’s intricate vinous and delicate style with slender length, intensity, and superb red fruit aromas. This offering carries great purity and combines strength with impeccable finesse. The ageing potential of this vintage is quite exceptional.
