VEUVE GOLD LABEL VINTAGE 2012 BRUT CHAMPAGNE

WINERY NOTES:
On April 12th, Veuve Clicquot launched its latest creation, the first Vintage by the hand of Cellar Master Dominique Demarville. At the Clos des Lambrays, in the heart of Burgundy, home of wood barrel vinification and Pinot Noir.

For the first time since the House turned to all stainless steel ageing in the 1960s, Dominique Demarville has reclaimed the use of oak to age a small portion of the wine (5%) from the 2012 harvest.

Demarville did not turn to oak as a way to look back to the past, but to reclaim its power to invoke complexity in a subtle, and thoroughly contemporary way.

"Thanks to the addition of just 5% of oak-aged wines into the 2012 assemblage, the wine has extra breadth and complexity-all without affecting the House style," Demarville notes. "In the same manner that chefs in a kitchen will use a pinch of spice to season a dish, this small addition of oak aging creates the `spice effect' that we are constantly looking for at Veuve Clicquot."
