This is where visitors from all over the world come to discover the history and knowledge of Veuve Clicquot. A labyrinth of shadows and light, the walls of the creators of these chalk cellars serve as a silent host for the best vintages. The structure and better than average flavor, the strength of this golden yellow champagne of complexity on the palate, of perfect finesse and forcefulness, manage to reveal a sophisticated harmony of flavors, displaying the characteristic style of Veuve Clicquot and its excellent savoir-faire. Originally created for a British market that wanted "dry" wines, but with the power of Veuve Clicquot to reconcile two opposing factors - strength and silkiness - maintaining them in balance and with plenty of freshness. A certain flexibility gives this champagne an almost universal character.

The Champagne House Veuve Clicquot was founded in 1772 and taken over in 1805 by the then-widow Barbe-Nicole Clicquot. Better known as Veuve Clicquot (Widow Clicquot), not only was the 27-year-old the first woman to run a Champagne house, she is also credited with creating the first known blended rosé champagne by blending still red and white champagne wines. This process is still used today by the majority of champagne producers. She’s also said to have invented the riddling process to clarify Champagne. Madame Clicquot became known to her peers as “La Grande Dame” of Champagne.More about the Winery
