Veuve Clicquot

About Veuve Clicquot

One of the most recognisable Champagnes in the world, the success of Veuve (meaning “widow” in French) Clicquot can be attributed to the woman who turned around a business on the brink of collapse into the behemoth it is today. Born Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, she was married to Francois Clicquot in 1798 in an attempt by both families to consolidate their respective business interests.

The Clicquots owned a small wine business that the newly-weds expressed an interest in expanding, but the venture did not (initially!) fare very well amidst the privations of the Napoleonic Wars. Even worse, Francois passed away abruptly from illness in 1805, just 6 years into their marriage. On the brink of bankruptcy, Barbe-Nicole sought investments twice from her father-in-law to keep the business afloat, and got her big break when she managed to sell her sweet Champagnes to the Russian market just as the Napoleonic Wars concluded. Soon after her wines hit the Russian shores, Tsar Alexander I announced that it was the only wine he would drink, and with that early ‘celebrity endorsement’ Barbe-Nicole never looked back.

Veuve Clicquot Grande Dame Rose 2008 (6x75cl)

Wine Spectator (94)

There's a racy tension here, with vivid acidity and an underlying streak of minerality, yet this is elegant overall, with a finely detailed mousse and well-meshed flavors of ripe raspberry, nectarine, Earl Grey tea and biscuit. Offers a long, chalk-tinged finish. Disgorged August 2016. Drink now through 2030.

Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 (6x75cl)

Decanter (97)

Now almost blanc de noirs, boasting 92% Pinot Noir and just 8% Chardonnay from 60%-70% estate vineyards. La Grande Dame is one of the most affordable of Champagne’s elite prestige set, and the stunning 2008 vintage was intricately engineered by the masterful Dominique Demarville for the long haul. It unites all of the enduring potential of its thundering grands crus with the tension and energy of this legendary season, colliding high-tensile acidity with deep, fine, powdery chalk minerality, bringing its finish into stark focus.

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Vintage Brut 2008 (6x75cl)

Decanter (96)

It is quite something to be invited to the launch of Champagne Veuve Clicquot 2008 at Clos des Lambrays, one of the finest grands crus of Burgundy's Côte de Nuits and acquired by LVMH in April 2014. It was rumoured to have paid close to €100m. The Veuve Clicquot 2008 is VC Chef de Caves Dominique Demarville’s first solo vintage. What fascinated him at Lambrays was winemaker Thierry Brouin’s consummate talent in capturing from the red iron-rich soil a wonderfully bright character in the wine- so fresh, rich yet elegant, density and delicacy in magical harmony. The same can be said for my two coups de coeur in Clicquot 2008. --- Veuve Clicquot 2008 (Magnum) --- Shimmering green-gold. Easily up several notches from the bottle. Perfect balance of freshness, ripe acidity and complex vinosity to come. Near perfect wine, patina of seasoned spice of subtle oak. --- Elegant and complex Champagne with plenty of fine mousse and flavours of toast, smoke and roasted fruit notes to balance the fresh acidity. A refined and refreshing fullbodied wine in a gastronomic style with the potential to drink well for many years.
