Hôtel du Marc has been renovated in line with the High Environmental Quality (HQE) principles.

OUR SUPPLIERS

For over 240 years, Veuve Clicquot has been a fixture of Champagne. The Maison features a wealth of its own high quality vineyards, joined by those of the Champagne growers it has partnered with to deliver the exquisite grapes that make our clear wines.  

With its formidable history and dynamism, Veuve Clicquot continues to increase its supplier base.

We are able to maintain our quality thanks to our longstanding supplier relationships. In fact, there are some families that have given grapes to Veuve Clicquot for more than six generations; we are very attached to the relationship of proximity and loyalty.

This continual development of our supply could not be accomplished without the help of a service uniquely dedicated to our Partners. The "Supply and Vineyard Relations" service is composed of ten people on the ground that work towards this end.

In 1999 , Veuve Clicquot was the first Maison to set up a technical department dedicated to its grape suppliers. Naturally, this team now is working to implement a Champagne Sustainable Viticulture with our Partners. By leveraging our passion and expertise, our technicians crisscross Champagne to meet with other winemakers, always advancing towards an ever more respectful common viticulture for our land, air and water.
