History of Veuve Clicquot Champagne

尤烏.克里括香檳酒的由來

Vueve Clicquot is a world-famous make of high quality French Champagne. It is named after Madame Clicquot Ponsardin whose husband, a champagne producer, suddenly died in 1805 after only two years of marriage. Unusual for those times, Madame Clicquot took over her husband's business, dedicating the rest of her life to producing the highest quality Champagne. She had great attention to detail, insistence upon quality and hard work and when she died at the age of 88 she was called the "Great Lady of Champagne."

The Highest Quality Champagne

最高品質的香檳酒

Veuve Clicquot is produced to the highest standards. First, the grapes are grown in soil that has been tended over hundreds of years to produce the best vines. After the grapes are pressed, only the top percentage of the juice is used to ferment into Veuve Clicquot Champagne. Next the wine is stored in bottles in cool, dark cellars that extend for 24 kilometers below ground at a depth of 20 meters and where the temperature is a constant 10°C. Here the wine, like buried treasure, ages and develops its special effervescence that is all-natural. While they age, each one of the 32 million bottles that lay in the cellars is given a one-eighth turn everyday by hand to make sure that the Champagne is clear and sparkling. Veuve Clicquot is then carefully shipped around the world to discerning customers.
