Veuve Clicquot (Champagne)
Product not available in United States
A true symbol of luxury and distinction, like all the products by this legendary winery, Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut 2008 champagne is a perfect reflection of the time and climate of this particular year's harvest, in which the grapes were able to ripen under ideal conditions.
This sparkling wine, therefore, constitutes the third "vintage" of the first decade of the 21st century, after 2002 and 2004, and number 65 since the first to be produced in 1810. Anecdotally, 5% of the wines used have been produced and aged in wooden barrels from the forests of Allier and Vosges, to enrich the complexity of this champagne for gourmets.
