Product Overview

 The visionary Widow Clicquot is responsible to a large degree for Veuve’s current exalted position. Ever the innovator, she created the first-known blended rosé champagne 200 years ago. A weighty but elegant burst of red fruits, with intense flavours of ripe strawberries and cherries.

--------THE PRODUCER--------

Veuve Clicquot

The House was originally established in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot. His son and heir, Francis, was being groomed to take over the bright yellow reins when he came down with a fever and died. Up steps his 27-year-old widow, Barbe Nicole Ponsardin, a visionary and a woman of exacting standards, tireless optimism and fiercely stubborn temperament who drove the business to giddying heights and is largely responsible for the huge profile the brand enjoys today. 

 

--------THE GRAPE--------

Champagne Blend

It might not be obvious looking at a Champagne or any other sparkling wine made by the Methode Traditionelle method, but Pinot Noir is one of the main grapes in these fizzy treats. Along with Chardonnay which is equally important and Pinot Meunier, to a lesser extent. Pinot Noir helps to give body and aromatics, Chardonnay gives acidity and finesse and Pinot Meunier can help to add some body or colour.

 

--------THE REGION--------

Champagne

Champagne is the famous region that makes the even more famous sparkling wines: Champagne. These wines are made via the Methode Tradtionelle process where the finished wines will undergo a secondary fermentation in bottle to create bubbles.
