Discover More About Our Products

A true symbol of luxury and distinction, like all the products by this legendary winery, Veuve Clicquot Vintage Brut 2008 champagne is a perfect reflection of the time and climate of this particular year's harvest, in which the grapes were able to ripen under ideal conditions.

This sparkling wine, therefore, constitutes the third "vintage" of the first decade of the 21st century, after 2002 and 2004, and number 65 since the first to be produced in 1810. Anecdotally, 5% of the wines used have been produced and aged in wooden barrels from the forests of Allier and Vosges, to enrich the complexity of this champagne for gourmets.

The Winery

Veuve Clicquot

Veuve Clicquot

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.

4 /5

- Sourced from twenty vineyards, all Grand and Premier Cru, this is a stunningly good wine.
- With the classic Veuve Pinot muscularity redolent of red fruit and creme brulee, the wine is immediately seductive but has harmonious balance and a pleasing freshness on the finish.
