Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old NV

Champagne, FranceThree years on the lees, and a 3 g/l dosage gives this new release a tighter, deeper form. A blend of 1996, 2008, 2009, 2010, this was bottled in November 2013 and disgorged June 2016. Light brioche, piercing lemon pith with a nervy acidity and humming acidity on the end. This is Veuve's classic toasty and shouldered generosity, kicked up a notch.
