Blend and Origin
Veuve Clicquot Vintage 2008
Pinot noir (61%), chardonnay (34%) and meunier (5%) sourced from 20 grands and premiers crus make up this vintage. About 5% of the wine was vinified, aged in large French oak casks and added to the blend, creating a lightly spiced, gently oaky champagne with aromas of vanilla and toasted nuts.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
