In the art of blending Champagne at the House of Veuve Clicquot, reserve wines play one of the noblest parts, adding depth, complexity, and mystery to the House’s flagship Yellow Label. The House pays homage to its heritage and writes another page of its history with the launch of an entirely new wine: Extra Brut Extra Old, a premium cuvee blended exclusively from its precious reserve wines’s collection.
The first edition of Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old was introduced in 2017 and is made only from the rare reserve wines Cramant 1988, Aube 1996, Verzy 2006, Villers-Marmery 2008, Ay 2009 and Ville-Dommange 2010. This cuvée has been elaborated with a double aging: a first aging of minimum 3 years in vat, and a second of 3 years in bottle.
