The Maison Veuve Clicquot has remained faithful to its motto: “une seule qualité́, la toute première“. Madame Clicquot was a daring and innovative woman. Nicknamed the great lady of Champagne, she took over the reins of the Maison in 1805 and became one of the first modern businesswomen. Her vision and innate sense of the French art of living continue to exist today in the House which bears her name through its remarkable collection of champagnes, which includes the emblematic Carte Jaune.


The Veuve Clicquot know-how, under the direction of the Cellar Master Didier Mariotti, is based on four essential elements:

  • The predominance of Pinot Noir
  • The addition of precious reserve wines
  • The terroir in which the vineyard is located and prolonged aging
  • Wines

Each champagne thus represents in its own way the Veuve Clicquot style, perfect balance between power, aromatic intensity, freshness, and silky.

Summer is here so let’s enjoy great moments with beloved ones. The new Clicquot’cino cocktail will for sure be the star of terraces. Do not hesitate to taste it and you will adopt it until the end of summer (if not more).
