Champagne Veuve Clicquot Brut in geschenkendoos
The Veuve Clicquot is, apart from Moet & Chandon, the world's most drunk champagne brut. The champagne has considerable strength and good finesse and is therefore a wine that can be used excellently for gastronomic purposes, but is of course also an excellent aperitif. These refined bubbles are an absolute must for those who love a good glass of sparkling wine! The Veueve Clicquot Ponsardin is in a beautiful bottle with the striking golden yellow label (carte jaune or yellow label). The champagne consists of a blend of 50% Pinot noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier.
Beautiful Champagne with a fine, creamy mousse, a fine balance and a long finish with some honey in it. The full, firm structure and rich, complex taste make it a pleasure to enjoy.
Today's Maison van Veuve Clicquot has one of the finest champagne vineyards, both in the size and quality of the vines. The 390 hectares are spread over 12 of the 17 Grands Crus and between 20 of the 44 Premiers Crus that make up the entire Champagne region. This exceptional heritage has been built up over the centuries, based on the plots first laid out by the founder and supplemented by later owners. Veuve Clicquot bears Madame Clicquot's casual territorial mark.
While the latter represents only a quarter of the total area of the vines in the entire Champagne region. The grape variety of each plot is determined by assessing the soil, climate, and exposure. The Veuve Clicquot vineyard consists of 47% Chardonnay grapes, 36% Pinot Noir and 17% Pinot Meunier. Clicquot's vines are usually located on gently sloping hillsides allowing the vines to take advantage of shallow soil and maximum exposure to sunlight. Since its inception, the Maison de Veuve Clicquot has also built a strong partnership with its fellow winegrowers in Champagne. These suppliers of grapes and white wines contribute to the consistent quality of the Veuve Clicquot wines.
