Veuve Clicquot’s signature style is a fine and elegant balance between freshness and complexity. The nose is reminiscent of raspberry, cherry blossom and dried cranberry, evolving into vanilla cream, frangipane and apricot jam on brioche. On the palate, the wine is powerful, well-structured and admirably vinous. Veuve Clicquot Rosé is perfect served on its own but can complement smoked salmon, strawberries and cream or a decadent breakfast.
The history of this famous Champagne house dates back to 1772 when Philippe Clicquot founded a wine-making business under the name Clicquot. In 1810 this was renamed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin after the young widow Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin inherited the estate. Ever in pursuit of excellence and innovation, Madame Clicquot used her skills to develop an exceptional wine-growing territory and went on to establish what is today one of the most iconic names in Champagne.
