The concentration and aromatic richness of a great vintage champagne
The Veuve Clicquot brand is today a runaway worldwide success, with the legend created by one woman: Madame Clicquot. In 1798 François Clicquot married the daughter of Baron Nicolas Ponsardin. Son of the founder of the Clicquot Champagne House, he passed on his passion and secret expertise for champagne making to his wife. When her husband died prematurely, at the age of 27, she took over the reins of the Veuve Clicquot Champagne House with determination. Guided by an innate sense of innovation and a constant quest for perfection, she invented the riddling table and marketed the first blended rosé champagne. Veuve Clicquot has made this uncompromising demand its motto: "One quality – the best."
The Veuve Clicquot House owns 390 hectares, one of the largest vineyards in Champagne. This vineyard is also exceptional in its quality, as it is spread over 12 of the 17 Grand Crus and 20 of the 44 Premier Crus of the Champagne region.
The 67th vintage since the creation of this Vintage Champagne in 1810, the 2015 vintage delights with its concentration and its structure. 2015 was an exceptional wine year, marked by low rainfall and plenty of sunshine.
