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.

Light red in colour, like a mature lighter Burgundy, with some perfumed sweet cherry notes. Delicious, supple with developed mouthfeel, forest floor aromas and a hint of leather. Crying out for food, perhaps a chicken dish with truffles, or some feat... Decanter. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1978 Veuve Clicquot Cave Privee Collection Rose 750ml
