2008 Veuve Clicquot, Vintage

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.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Assembling 35% Chardonnay, 5% Meunier and 60% Pinot Noir, the 2008 Vintage Brut is one of the rare vintage Champagnes of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin and it follows the earlier releases of 1999, 2004 and 2012. Disgorged in March 2015 with eight grams dosage, the bright colored 2008 has a very clear, fresh, pure and intense, as well as complex nose, with brioche, biscuit and prominent Chardonnay aromas. Pure, dry, straight and elegant on the palate, this is a refreshing and lifted, but also complex and expressive Brut. It also has tension, grip and a stimulating salinity in the finish. This Champagne is excellent and should be served with seafood.
