Maison Veuve Clicquot is launching a new champagne called Extra Old Extra Brut, a premium cuvée that is an exclusive expression of Yellow Label.
Blended exclusively from precious reserve wines spanning three decades from 1988-2010, these wines are at the heart of the blend’s identity and embody Veuve Clicquot’s house style and values.
Dominique Demarville, cellar master at Veuve Clicquot said: “I wanted to create a low dosage champagne in the Veuve Clicquot style: intense, powerful, fresh and smooth. I therefore chose wines that were the most representative of these characteristics, the way the wines have been aged in vats, on the lees, according to our tradition means that this product captures the historical expertise and true Clicquot spirit.”
To celebrate the launch of Extra Brut Extra Old, Veuve Clicquot has partnered with chef Lee Westcott from the Typing Room in east London. Lee said: “When I was approached by Veuve Clicquot to team up for their latest launch, what struck me was the theme of mixing difference styles and eras to produce something unique.
“This is something I really relate to in my own restaurant, Typing Room where we focus on offering a culinary experience that blends a historical setting in east London with a modern and innovative culinary style.”
Extra Brut Extra Old’s versatile character makes it a the ideal partner for light, delicate dishes as well as richer flavours and is best paired with crayfish or meatier fish like Seabass, as well as mushroom-based dishes and mature cheeses.
