    Description

    One of the 17 Grande Marque Houses from Champagne. Dating back to 1772 the house has a rich and varied history. 'Veuve' translates as widow and is a reference to Barbe Nicole Ponsardin who ran the company from a very young age due to her husband's early and untimely death. Her influence was clear within the house of Veuve Clicquot (the label's distinctive colour still used today was her choice) but also spread across the Champagne region with her method of clarifying the wine being adopted by all the producers to this day.

    Tasting Notes

    2012 was a testing year for growing Champagne but it turns out the effort was well worth it. For Veuve Clicquot the end result was a rich and intense Champagne with luscious citrus flavours beautifully balanced with nutty, almond aromas. A treat as always.
