Veuve Clicquot is one of Champagne's best known producers, and has been a consistent seller since it was founded in 1772. Pinot Noir has dominated over Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier in this blend from its inception. The house famously invented the process of riddling, which removed the dead yeast cells and gave the finished wines a clear appearance. In 1805, Madame Clicquot unexpectedly became a young widow. At just 27 years old, with skill and grace, she took the reins of the champagne House founded in Reims by her late husband’s family in 1772. In 2015, the cellars were listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. Today, Veuve Clicquot is owned by luxury giant Louis Vuitton Möet Hennessy (LVMH).
The wine has a luminous color with attractive pink glints. The nose is generous and elegant, with initial aromas of fresh red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry, cherry, blackberry), leading to biscuity notes of dried fruits and Viennese pastries (almonds, apricots and brioche).
