61% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Meunier
The Veuve Clicquot 65th vintage wine shows strength and freshness. The first in nearly 50 years to contain a proportion of oak-aged wine, Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut 2008 is deep, lively and well-structured. With a high concentration of pinot noir, the 2008 vintage reflects that year’s ideal growing and harvesting conditions. Chef de cave Dominique Demarville’s first solo vintage is intense and fresh.
Pinot noir (61%), chardonnay (34%) and meunier (5%) sourced from 20 grands and premiers crus make up this vintage. About 5% of the wine was vinified, aged in large French oak casks and added to the blend, creating a lightly spiced, gently oaky champagne with aromas of vanilla and toasted nuts.
