Veuve Clicquot reveals a unique champagne with a rare aromatic richness

The estate

Today, Veuve Clicquot has become a brand with worldwide success. It is the story of a Champagne house whose myth was created by one woman: Madame Clicquot. A brilliant and bold woman, she successfully imposed herself in the business world and became known as "La Grande Dame de la Champagne’’, ‘’the Great Lady of Champagne". Guided by an innate sense of innovation and a perpetual quest for perfection, she invented the riddling table and marketed the first blended rosé champagne. Veuve Clicquot has turned this uncompromising requirement into her motto: "Only one quality, the finest". The Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne house was a pioneer in deciding to adorn its bottles with a yellow-orange label, the design was registered in 1877.

The vineyard

Comprising 390 hectares of land, Veuve Clicquot has one of the largest vineyards in Champagne. This vineyard boasts an exceptional quality, as it is spread over 12 out of the 17 Grands Crus and 20 out of the 44 Premiers Crus of the Champagne region.

The wine

The latest addition to the Veuve Clicquot Champagne House, Veuve Clicquot Rich is surprisingly bold and original. Historically, the name Rich referred to the blending of wines that resulted in the creation of sweet champagnes. Recently, bottles dating back to 1840, containing nearly 150 grams of sugar per litre, were found in the cellars of the Veuve Clicquot House. A champagne with a unique character, Veuve Clicquot Rich is dosed at 60 grams of sugar per litre, thus enhancing the blend and revealing the unique aromatic palette of this cuvée.

The blend

Veuve Clicquot Rich is composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay.
