In an era when women were excluded from the business world, she dared to assume the head of the company, a role she undertook with passion and determination. Madame Clicquot’s character might be summarized with two words: audacious and intelligent. She would seize each new opportunity that arose, willing to take risks, and as such, she was able to expand her business to all four corners of the world. Uncompromising when it came to the quality of her wines, she perfected new techniques of production.
She invented the " table de remuage " (riddling table) to clarify champagne and innovated the very first blend of rosé champagne. Within just a few years she made her name into a brand of excellence, a name today renowned throughout the world. Even then, her peers recognized her formidable contributions and referred to her as the “ Grande Dame " of Champagne.
On the Palate, it is plump and full of substance. The texture is crisp and silky. The tannins are still present, calling for a cuisine with texture to bring out the best in this wine.
The finish is long and coats the palate. The tannins are already very well integrated and can be expected to blend in still further over the coming years.
