The difference between champagne and outstanding champagne
Champagne is a wine of legend. The entire history of the Veuve Clicquot House is marked by mythical wines which respect the demand for quality that drove Madame Clicquot.
True to this heritage, the House is proud of its motto:
Only one quality, the finest.
Since it was founded in 1772, the respect for quality has been handed down through a lineage of just 11 cellar masters, ensuring the continuity of its style: a blend of strength and complexity.
The quality and style of Veuve Clicquot champagne is based on four pillars:
The exceptional quality of the terroir, where 86% of the Veuve Clicquot vines are classified as Grands or Premiers Crus.
The dominance of Pinot Noir which unlocks the full strength of the wines.
The presence of reserve wines, aged for up to 20 years to enhance the intensity of the champagne’s bouquet.
The long ageing in the cellar (minimum 30 months) which gives the champagne its silkiness.
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label
The House’s winemaking credentials are demonstrated by the quality of its brut non-vintage champagne. The Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label champagne, recreated every year thanks to its priceless collection of reserve wines, is the signature of the House’s style and quality. The yellow label that sets it apart from other champagnes reflects its bright personality. This champagne is ideal as an aperitif and perfect to enjoy with a meal.
The Veuve Clicquot Rich blend is a champagne created for mixology, with a sugar content of 60 g/l.
The oenology team has chosen a selection of ingredients that enhance the wine’s notes: cucumber, pineapple, grapefruit zest, pepper, ginger, lime, celery or tea – all on the rocks.
