Seckford are delighted to offer a parcel of the 2008 Veuve Clicquot vintage expression.
We opened a bottle in the Seckford offices yesterday, this is a champagne that is perfect for drinking now and a perfect aperitif for Easter luncheon!
With the Veuve yellow label being such a huge presence in the Champagne market, the vintage wines often look undervalued and at the sale price of £45 a bottle delivered to you, the value is outstanding.
2008 Veuve Clicquot - Assembling 35% Chardonnay, 5% Meunier and 60% Pinot Noir, the 2008 Vintage Brut is one of the rare vintage Champagnes of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin and it follows the earlier releases of 1999, 2004 and 2012. Disgorged in March 2015 with eight grams dosage, the bright colored 2008 has a very clear, fresh, pure and intense, as well as complex nose, with brioche, biscuit and prominent Chardonnay aromas. Pure, dry, straight and elegant on the palate, this is a refreshing and lifted, but also complex and expressive Brut. It also has tension, grip and a stimulating salinity in the finish. This Champagne is excellent and should be served with seafood - 92 Points.
