Veuve Clicquot Brut presents a fine balance between fruity aromas and more subtle toasty notes. Initial flavours of white fruits and raisins develop into notes of brioche and vanilla with bottle aging.
Since its inception, Veuve Clicquot has been a specialist in Champagnes based on Pinot Noir, especially Rosé. The House was founded by Philippe Clicquot in 1772. In 1803, François Clicquot was married to Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin. Madame Clicquot was widowed just two years later. Veuve Clicquot (Veuve means widow in French) took over her husband’s business and in 1810, and the house took the name Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin. The way Madame Clicquot ran the company, from risky overseas ventures to startling technological innovations, changed Champagne forever. Her motto is still the guiding principle of the company “Only one quality the finest.”
Launched in 1972 for the bicentennial of the Maison, this Champagne is a tribute to Madame Clicquot that was named « La Grande Dame de la Champagne ». For over 240 years, the House has stayed true to the motto of audacious and visionary Madame Clicquot, who made her champagne known to the world : Only one quality, the finest. Consistently complex and powerful, Veuve Clicquot is also the style champagne that radiates elegance, vibrancy and edge, with a unique yellow signature.
