Veuve Clicquot Release 2008 Vintage

Veuve Clicquot’s latest vintage, 2008 is the first vintage at Veuve Clicquot to be made by cellar master Dominique Demarville, who arrived at the house in 2006 from Champagne Mumm.  It is also the first vintage since the 1960s to use wooden fermentation and ageing vessels for the wines and is the first vintage to feature the disgorgement date on the label.

The 2008 vintage will reappear as a second release in the future under the Cave Privée label, which is reserved for wines which have undergone extended ageing both on and off the lees.

Veuve Clicquot’s next vintage release would be the 2012 vintage followed by the 2015 vintage, so they will only have produced a vintage three times in the last 10 years.
