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. Driven by her vision, taste for excellence and inventive spirit, she created the first recorded vintage champagne (1810), the riddling table (1816) and the very first blended rosé champagne (1818).
More than just prowess, making Veuve Clicquot champagne has always been a creative act, requiring unique expertise grounded in a love for Pinot Noir and the art of aging.
From harvest to shipment, Veuve Clicquot is inspired by the House’s longstanding motto, “only one quality, the finest.”
Madame Clicquot’s legacy shines on throughout the House with passion and optimism.
Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec pays homage to the taste of the 19th century. The higher presence of Chardonnay enhances its sweetness and silkiness. It is best served in a carafe, allowing the flavors to fully expand and develop.
No fewer than 50 individual wines make up this cuvée. The traditional proportions for Demi Sec are: 40 to 45% Pinot Noir, 30 to 35% Meunier, 20 to 25 % Chardonnay. The inclusion of 20 to 30% of reserve wines ensures the consistency of the Veuve Clicquot style.
These wines are kept separate, each one cellared individually, as befits its origin and age. The level of dosage - 45g/l decided at the moment of disgorgement - results in a sweeter balance of flavours, while preserving the wine’s inherent freshness.
