Extra Brut Extra Old

Extra Brut Extra Old is a cuvée collection crafted from a unique blend of prestigious old reserve wines.

THE BLEND

In 2013, Cellar Master Dominique Demarville created a unique blend composed exclusively from reserve wines, in order to express the quintessence of Yellow Label and paying tribute to Madame Clicquot and her innovative and visionary process. Thus, was born the Extra Brut Extra Old cuvée, a particularly singular champagne. In 2019, the House reveals the second blend of the collection, Extra Brut Extra Old 2, a new blend testifying of the historical savoir-faire of the House.
Intro

In 2019, Veuve Clicquot unveiled a second blending to the Extra Brut Extra Old cuvée collection. Extra Brut Extra Old 2 is a complex, nuanced blend of eight of the House’s prestigious reserve wines - 1990, 1998, 1999, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012, aged for a minimum of five years. Pinot Noir dominates the blend (45%) and provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, followed by Chardonnay (27%) that adds finesse and elegance essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and then Meunier (28%) that rounds out the blend. The ageing potential is more than 15 years.
