In 1818, Madame Clicquot invented the first known blended Rosé Champagne ever that you can enjoy and share today for its liveliness and burst of fruits. Made using 50 to 60 different crus, and 30 to 45% of Reserve wines, the cuvée is based on Yellow Label’s traditional blend: the Pinot Noir predominance (50-55%) provides the structure that is so typically Veuve Clicquot, while Chardonnay (28-33%) adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and a touch of Meunier (15-20%) rounds out the blend. The blend is then completed with 12% of still red wine using red grapes, providing fruitiness. The long period of aging in our Crayères (3 years minimum for Rosé) lends silkiness to the Champagne.

 

Veuve Clicquot, with their almost unrivalled cachet and unmistakable branding, are the epitome of elegance and daring. With over two centuries of champagne-making expertise under their belt, Veuve have forged themselves an enviable reputation, built around the mystique of the rather formidable Widow Clicquot.

The House was originally established in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot. His son and heir, Francis, was being groomed to take over the bright yellow reins when he came down with a fever and died. Up steps his 27-year-old widow, Barbe Nicole Ponsardin, a visionary and a woman of exacting standards, tireless optimism and fiercely stubborn temperament who drove the business to giddying heights and is largely responsible for the huge profile the brand enjoys today.

The flagship non-vintage model, with its distinctive yellow label and high proportion of Pinot Noir, is a triumph of consistency and individual character, the perfect balance of finesse and forcefulness. The whole range, right through to the exquisite prestige cuvée, La Grande Dame, is superb.
