<p style="text-align:justify">2008 is the third Veuve Clicquot Vintage of the decade, following 2002 and 2004, and the House's 65th since its first Vintage of 1810. New for the 2008 release, 5% of the wines were produced and aged in wooden casks to increase the complexity and aromatic richness. These cask-aged wines bring very light woody, vanilla and toasted aromas. On the palate, the frank, lively and pure attack moves into a powerful, structured palate, delicately chiselled from the minerality of Champagne's chalky terroir.
<p style="text-align:justify">The 2008 blanc was disgorged in March 2015, after six years maturing on its lees and one year ageing in Clicquot’s cellars post-disgorgement. The 2008 is the first vintage to feature the disgorgement date on the label, a piece of information that previously only featured on the Cave Privée Champagnes.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify">A declared Veuve Clicquot Vintage must be something very special and the 2008 truly is. Enjoy chilled now, or with great potential for careful ageing for the next ten years.</p> 49.95add-to-cart2016-06-23
