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’
47% Pinot noir, 26% Meunier, 27% Chardonnay
An intense colour with flashes of gold. Its very fine bubbles create a delicate necklace.
Ripe stone fruits and delicate yeast can be detected alongside candied citrus rounded off by the toastiness that is always a hallmark of Veuve Clicquot. On the palate the attack is powerful and smooth, supported by the lighter effervescence that often accompanies older champagnes. Three qualities emerge within the overall structure, freshness, minerality and purity. A remarkably long finish with flashes of salt.
A beautiful adaptable wine with the freshness for an aperitif and the depth to complement a meal. Try with sea bass, guinea fowl, crayfish, veal, mushrooms, fattened chicken, mature cheese.
