About Veuve Clicquot

A Champagne house that needs little introduction.

Nicole Barbe Ponsardin, the widow or veuve as it is in French, took over the house at the tender age of 27. Her resolve ensured Veuve was shipped to Russia disguised in coffee barrels and is renowned for establishing the now common-place riddling process, or remuage, used today.

Pinot Noir grapes from Bouzy, produces wines of supple finesse, elegance and drinkability.

Appellation: Champagne

Champagne is the world's original and most famous region for the production of sparkling wine. A range of styles are produced from the Non-Vintage, through Rose, Vintage and more recently a host of prestige, Vintage luxury cuvees. The three permitted grape varieties are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Grape Type: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is the classic grape of red burgundy, whose greatest wines are concentrated in the east and south-east-facing clay/limestone hills of Burgundy's Côte d'Or. A notoriously temperamental variety, Pinot Noir has proved difficult to grow in certain climates and soils and will not tolerate over-cropping. The best examples have wonderfully expressive aromas and thrillingly pure bitter sweet red forest fruit and cherry flavours, developing truffle and game overtones with age. Outside of Burgundy, Pinot Noir has had great success in New Zealand, California’s Carneros, Oregon and the more marginal, cooler districts in Australia. Along with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir is also one of the major components of Champagne.
