Vintage Champagnes

Distinctive and powerful, each Vintage is the unique expression of a single harvest chosen for its remarkable quality and loyalty to the House’s style. Vintages with exceptional qualities and unparalleled aging potential are carefully preserved for decades at the heart of Veuve Clicquot’s chalk cellars in Reims, making up the Cave Privée.

Vintage Brut 2004

Vintage 2004, the House's 64th vintage, is a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to Roger Zèches, Cellar Master from 1941 to 1969.
Vintage Brut 2004 intro

Born on August 7, 1904, he took over from his father and left his indelible mark on the post war vintages. The 1904 harvest was abundant for the time and proved one of the best of the early 20th century. History may or may not repeat itself, but these two cuvees, separated by exactly a century, owe their beginnings to similarly beneficial conditions.The exceptionally good weather conditions in September 2004 allowed the abundant crop of grapes to ripen beautifully. So between September 23 and October 13, we harvested some exceptional grapes in excellent conditions.

The Pinot Noir wines are fruity and full-bodied; the Chardonnay wines show a lot of distinction, and the Meunier wines add a touch of gourmandise.

Tasting notes

"One of the best vintages since the great 2002, this is a sophisticated, fruit and yeast- driven wine. It has a delicate touch, with its white fruit flavors well integrated into the toasty and tangy texture. It will age for many more years."
