Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, many originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champagne region and are exceptional in size and quality. As in madame Clicquot's day, bottles age in the House's vast, vaulted cellars in Reims, portions of which were constructed some 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The remarkable Madame Clicquot (1777-1866) is considered one of the first business-women of the modern era. Widowed in 1805 at the age of 27, Madame Veuve Clicquot (born Ponsardin) defied every convention of the day to take the helm of her late husband's small Champagne House. She personally supervised cellar activities and introduced innovative production techniques still used today. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied Champagne. Read less

a dry, crisp and full of flavors classic champagne. the yellow label looks like gold in a fine glass. some baked apple & brioche on the nose. with a hint of toast and nuts although a bit harsh initially, with aeration became smoother.

Tart and dry, but not a bad Champagne if you're feeling like going authentic.

One of the best vintages since the great 2002 this is a sophisticated fruit- and yeast-driven wine. It has a delicate touch with its white fruit flavors well integrated into the toasty and tangy texture. It will age for many more years. Wine Enthusiast.

Sleek, with mouthwatering acidity and an aromatic base note of chalky minerality, this features well-meshed flavors of black currant pâte de fruit, pastry, candied ginger and almond skin. The finely detailed, creamy mousse lends lasting finesse to the finish. Drink now through 2025.

This fresh Champagne offers a lively bead and a smoky mineral-tinged base note. Flavors of poached apple and pear dried cherry bread dough and lemon zest lead to a finish of good intensity and length. Very zesty. Drink now through 2022.

According to Wine Spectator - Refined and creamy in texture, this offers a rich, smoky base note to flavors of macerated cherry, toasted brioche, candied orange peel and strawberry preserves.

The wine has a deep pink colour with coppery, luminous glints. Abundant streams of light, delicate bubbles rise delicately to the surface before gently disappearing. The first nose is dominated by elegant aromas of red berry (redcurrant, blackcurrant) and firm fruits (wild strawberry, red plum, cherry). Fragrant hints of violet and lilac evoke the scents of springtime and autumnal notes (dried fruit, Spanish membrillo and dried fig) gradually come to the fore, together with a light touch of ground coffee or cocoa. The attack is clean and dynamic. The wine is full and textured with a long, mellow finish (honey and almond). It combines a distinct structure with strikingly fresh flavours (liquorice, aniseed). In the mouth, the fruitiness echoes the superb notes of the nose and is particularly intense. The finish is extraordinarily long. The subtle balance of structure, suppleness and freshness offers this wine an ageing potential of at least 20 years.

Tasting Notes:

The nose, extremely elegant, at first reveals flavours of ripe red fruits that burst on the tongue before gradually giving way to violets, lilacs and light 'pastry' notes. A discreet touch of ground coffee can also be distinguished. The attack is fortright and energetic.
