A crisp but complex style, this vintage Veuve is a step up from their standard NV into the world of very serious bubbles. Dry and elegantly complex, 2008 was an excellent vintage and it shows in the weight, texture and power of this reputable and classy Champagne.

Overview

Grape

Pinot Noir Chardonnay Blend

Its Origins

Philippe Clicquot-Muiron established Veuve Clicquot in 1772. However, it was Phillipe`s daughter-in-law, Nicole-Barbe Clicquot, who really laid the foundations of the modern company. She was one of the great innovators - it was she who invented remuage in the early 19th century. Now it is part of the LVMH group. Beginning with the Bouzy vineyards that originally belonged to founder Philippe Clicquot, the Veuve vineyards now cover 393 hectares of land, spread over the very best Champagne growing areas: 12 of the 17 Grands Crus, and 18 of the 44 Premiers Crus.

What The Critics Say

96/100 Decanter

"Shimmering green-gold. Easily up several notches from the bottle. Perfect balance of freshness, ripe acidity and complex vinosity to come. Near perfect wine, patina of seasoned spice of subtle oak."
