Veuve Clicquot Cave Privee Vintage 1989 Brut 750ml

1989 marked the return of the hot, dry vintages, similar to the legendary years of 1945, 1959 and 1964. After very early budding, the vines suffered from a cold spell. On April 27, a severe spring frost hit a large section of the Champagne vineyard.

Cave Privée 1989 is made up of wines from 25 Grands and Premiers Crus from regions in the Montagne de Reims, the Grande Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs.
The blend is 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay.

Tasting Note: 
The colour is a strong gold. A full-flavoured and immediate structure provides a strong palate full of dried fruits with hints of spice leading to a lasting finish.
Discreet notes of saffron, badian and sandalwood persist. The ageing potential for this vintage of Cave Privée is exceptional.

 

Alc: 12%
