When poured, Extra Brut Extra Old reveals an intense color, with flashes of gold. Upon being released into a glass, its very fine bubbles create a delicate necklace. The initial nose is impressively intense, with richness and dimension. Ripe stone fruits and delicate yeast can be detected alongside candied citrus, rounded off by the toastiness that is a signature of Veuve Clicquot Champagnes. On the palate, the initial taste is powerful and smooth. That smoothness, another characteristic of the House, is supported by the lighter effervescence that often accompanies older Champagnes. After the initial taste, three qualities emerge: freshness, minerality and purity. Intense and powerful, yet fresh and smooth, Extra Brut Extra Old's flexibility and character makes it a beautiful adaptable wine, an ideal pairing for both light and rich flavor foods.
