Stretching along more than 24 kilometers of champagne soils, the chalk tunnels are a monument in homage to the house. 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.

Who was the first to think of using the old quarries to stock champagne bottles? Although it is difficult to say, Veuve Clicquot did take advantage of the opportunity to increase cellaring space for its wines. In 1909, the House bought some magnificent chalk cellars, located on the Saint-Nicaise hills, which today enjoy new life as ageing cellars.More about the Winery
