The 1990 vintage is imposing. 1990 fulfilled all a Cellar Master’s wishes simultaneously with the wine prepared under conditions close to perfection before majestically maturing in the cellar.
The colour attracts our attention, with its remarkable copper tints, both luminous and sustained. The nose is an explosion of aromas going off in every direction! The fruit is pure indulgence with notes of Morello cherries and gingerbread, followed more fleetingly by peat and liquorice.
The palate is smooth with delicate bubbles that seem more soft than effervescent. The length appears interminable, the strength of the Pinot Noir lending an ample winey character. The low dosage comes into its own prolonging the finish.
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.
The bottles are also individually numbered on the neck collar, and the back label carries disgorgement details including the date, the total number of bottles disgorged and the g/l of residual sugar in the dosage liquor.
