Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old is made only of reserve wines, from the years 1988 , 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010, chosen for their freshness, generosity and structure. Dominique Demarville created this blend to capture the spirit of Yellow Label, rendering it with a vibrancy, depth and purity.
According to the tradition of the House, and reflecting its long history of blending expertise, the wines in Extra Brut Extra Old have been aged a minimum of three years in vats, on the lees. Another turn of aging comes in Extra Brut Extra Old bottles, which mature in the cellars for another three years before disgorgement.
Reflecting the full-bodied richness of the reserve wines in Extra Brut Extra Old, the blend receives only a very low dosage of 3g/L. The resulting wine shares with Yellow Label its complexity and cleanless, richness and freshness, brought into an even clearer relief.
