Championing excellence above all else, Veuve Clicquot today still lives by Madame Clicquot’s motto: “Only one quality, the finest.” This champagne has been created especially for cocktails. To experiment with “Clicquology,” place a few ice cubes in a large glass and add one of the following ingredients: pineapple, grapefruit zest, cucumber, celery, peppers or tea. Top up with chilled champagne and enjoy.
In 1805, Madame Clicquot, a young widow of 27 years, took over the reins of the House founded in Reims in 1772 and became one of the first business women in history. Audacious and visionary, she made her champagne known to the world Know How & Craftsmanship: For over 200 years, the House has stayed true to its motto : ‘Only one quality, the finest’
The stronger concentration of meunier (40%) gives this champagne fresh and fruity notes, while pinot noir (45%) and chardonnay (15%) provide balance. Reserve wines (25-35%) are used to create the perfect blend. Winemakers use their dosage expertise to add sweetness (60 grams per litre), which complements the wine’s freshness and any added cocktail ingredients.
Veuve Clicquot Rich is bright and clear.
Aromas of fruit – peach, apricot, pineapple and mango – dominate, with just a hint of almond. This champagne is lightly sweet, with fresh citrus and floral notes and a silky finish.
