Excellence and quality

Champagne is a wine of legend. The entire history of the Veuve Clicquot House is marked by mythical wines, all of which respect the demand for quality that was the force that drove Madame Clicquot. True to this heritage, the House is proud of its motto: "Only one quality, the finest". A short lineage of just 10 Cellar Masters has led this quest for quality, thereby ensuring the continuity of the Veuve Clicquot style: strength and complexity.

Veuve Clicquot privileges excellence and quality
Only the juice from the cuvee (the first - and most noble - pressing) is used.

Little dosing liquor

Veuve Cliquot wines contain very little dosing liqueur: each Champagne house is free to choose the amount of sugar used in dosing. The Veuve Clicquot Brut Carte Jaune contains 9 to 11 grams of sugar per litre. This light dosage allows the House’s emblematic wine to fully express the values that characterize the Veuve Clicquot style: powerful and complex.t allows consumers to identify Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin bottles.
