An exceptional champagne that pays tribute to the talented, visionary and innovative Madame Clicquot, Veuve Clicquot's Extra Brut Extra Old is the fruit of the meticulous work carried out by Dominique Demarville, the House's Cellar Master.
Resolutely innovative, Veuve Clicquot's Extra Brut Extra Old is made from a blend of reserve wines from 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Dominique Demarville has thus chosen to blend their history’s finest wines and produce a prestigious cuvée that embodies the quintessence of Carte Jaune.
The aromatic bouquet evolves into notes of candied citrus fruits while developing beautiful notes of ripe stone fruits. This champagne, dosed at 3g/L, highlights the rich and full-bodied character of the reserve wines that make up the blend, while retaining a pleasant freshness and a rare aromatic purity.
Food pairing : A gourmet champagne, Veuve Clicquot's Extra Brut Extra Old can be enjoyed with surprising and daring pairings such as mature cheeses, seafood, fish and noble meats, or mushroom-based dishes.
