Champagne Veuve Clicquot
"Édition 250éme Anniversaire" Vintage Magnum 2002

Maison Veuve Clicquot celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2022, and with Chef de Caves Didier Mariotti, it has released a limited edition Vintage 2002 for this important anniversary. This is the 63rd Vintage since 1810, the year in which Madame Clicquot created the first Champagne from a single harvest with her visionary and innovative spirit.

The 2002 vintage was exceptionally dry and sunny and extraordinarily long-lived. The result was a perfect combination of the full, generous flavours of Pinot Noir grapes and the bold, fresh taste of Chardonnay. Grapes comes exclusively from Premier and Grand Cru classified vineyards.

The aromatic richness of this Champagne, linked to the deep and prolonged ageing on its lees (over 16 years), is expressed in the glass with sweet and buttery aromas, between honey and brioche bread, with citrus nuances and a peppery softness. 

The recent disgorging (2022), and the large format, have perfectly preserved the youth of this extraordinary vintage.

Produced in a limited edition only in Magnum and Jéroboam format.

Winery

Champagne Veuve Clicquot

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin is an important Maison, founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot, coming from a family of bankers and merchants, also owning vineyards. He opened a négoce de vin à l’enseigne Clicquot with the aim of exporting it all over the world: a commercial document form the Maison's archives confirms that the first delivery took place in 1772 and was shipped to Venice. In 1805 François Clicquot left too soon and Madame Clicquot, a 27-year-old widow, became the company's manager: she was one of the first business women in the modern era. In 1810 Madame Clicquot showed the world her creative spirit and she produced the first Vintage Champagne in the world. In 1963 Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin turned into a Ltd. and in 1986 joined the Louis Vuitton Group. The Veuve Clicquot vines are absolutely one of the best in the Champagne region, both for their size and their quality: 382 hectares, comprising 12 out of 17 Grand Cru and 18 out of 39 Premier Cru, which delivers 26-28% of the Maison's provision. The remaining production comes from vine growers in the Champagne region, selected for their quality and linked to the Maison by lifelong aggrements. The Veuve Clicquot style with a strong predominance of Pinot Noir grants the wines structure and strength. Together with fineness and freshness of Chardonnay, the wines acquire the unique style of Veuve Clicquot, distinctive trait of a great Maison de Champagne. The vinous taste reveals the great and perfectly controlled complexity of it.
