The multifaceted champagne. Following on two consecutive years of small harvests, 1982 was a particularly
abundant year in Champagne. The September weather was exceptional, enabling the
grapes to ripen to perfection. The blend for this vintage was composed solely
of Pinot Noir (2/3) and Chardonnay (1/3).
The gold colour, with amber
reflections, sets the tone: this is a wine which will reveal itself! The
effervescence is light, delicate, subtle and slowly deployed. The nose is very
rich with dried fruit, hints of cocoa, salted butter caramel and candied citrus
The palate is surprisingly youthful, the minerality emphasizing the
wine’s freshness, the finish ending with notes of dried apricot and sandalwood.
We are impressed by the wine’s ability to adapt giving a sensation of freshness
for an aperitif and depth for a meal!
Cave Privée is a range of limited release Champagnes taken from Veuve Clicquot's finest vintages, bottled as they reach their peak of perfection. After seventeen years on lees and two under cork, Cave Privée is treated to a bespoke dosage before being released.
Individually marked and dated and available in very limited quantities only.
The Cave Privée label has been designed to recall the original Veuve Clicquot vintage label dating from 1893 - each bottle comes in a wooden box with a yellow ribbon woven through it.
