Maison Veuve Clicquot Champagne

In production since 1772 in the in the heart of France’s Champagne region (Reims), Veuve Clicquot’s trademark bright-yellow label is a staple on many restaurant, bar, and lounge wine lists. Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Noir grapes are all used by Veuve Clicquot in its portfolio of wines, which include Bruts, Rosés, the signature RICH (in a silver bottle, launched in 2015) and a demi-sec. For the Cuvée “Yellow Label,” grapes from between 50 and 60 growing areas are used to make the wine.

This is a high-volume production Champagne. Even in 1805, as original owner Philippe Clicquot’s widow Madame Clicquot took over the reins, the winery shipped a remarkable 110,000 bottles around the world. Madame Clicquot was also the first to use a riddling table, where workers manually rotate the bottles while upright, starting a tradition still used today at sparkling-wine houses in Europe.
