Our wines must be flattering both on the palate and on the eyes
At Veuve Clicquot, color is a source of boundless creativity, inspiration, and audacity. Not only do we admire color and integrate it into everything we do – our unmistakeable, iconic sunburst yellow comes to mind! – but color has long been essential to our House’s heritage. Did you know that two of Madame Clicquot’s most audacious innovations were inspired in part by color? The riddling table, for a champagne pure in color, and the first known blended rosé champagne, her creation distinct in taste, aroma, and luminous color. She knew that color is essential to appreciate a wine. Before it even comes to our lips, we take in a wine’s colors, depths, and luminosities with our eyes. As Madame Clicquot once wrote, “our wines must be flattering both on the palate and on the eye.”
Furthermore, at Veuve Clicquot, our winemakers blend wines with the same great savoir-faire and skill than artists who blend colors. Their “palette”? Veuve Clicquot’s unique reserve wines that help perpetuate the House's style. This priceless collection includes more than 400 wines that span nearly three decades, and numerous wine varieties and crus. When blended with the harvest of the year, the result is intense, fruit-forward champagne that bursts with aromatic nuances.
Is it any wonder that we believe that life tastes better in colors? Such an inspiration deserves a fitting tribute. So in 2019 join us to experience Colorama, Veuve Clicquot’s brilliant and vibrant homage to color!
