Madame Clicquot,
the grande dame
of Champagne

Relive the extraordinary story of Madame Clicquot, a young woman of 27 who took the reins of the House on the death of her husband in 1805 and succeeded in revolutionizing the world of champagne, creating the first vintage champagne (1810), the riddling table (1816), and the first blended rosé champagne (1818).

While visiting our Crayères, the Unesco World Heritage-listed cellars that are emblematic of the House, you will understand how Madame Clicquot came to be known as the “grande dame of Champagne” at the end of her life.

The visit will be followed by a tasting of our iconic Brut Yellow Label cuvée in Magnum, and of our prestige cuvée La Grande Dame, a showcase for the House’s excellence.
