FRANKRIJK-CHAMPAGNE / 0.70ltr, 12.5%Read more...
In the history of Champagne, wines that were blended for greater sweetness were customarily
described as “rich.” Even the 1840s bottles of Veuve Clicquot found recently in the Aland Islands
has 150 grams per liter of sugar. Historically in Russia, consumers would add sugar to their
champagne, thus adding a personal touch to their wine. Today Veuve Clicquot propels this
tradition into the contemporary era with RICH, a champagne created expressly by our wine team,
through its dosage expertise, for mixology.
Inspired by a fresh new vision for modern drinking, Veuve Clicquot’s wine team led by esteemed
cellar master Dominique Demarville and professional mixologists relied on their renowned
savoir-faire of dosage to create a totally new wine for a new time. Dominique Demarville states
that “sugar in champagne is like spices in a recipe, used correctly it can bring out specific aromas
and play with taste”. In Veuve Clicquot RICH the fruit is boosted to an exciting new level. The
signature Pinot Noir of Veuve Clicquot is given a new versatility with a higher dosage, while a
greater presence of Meunier emphasizes fresh, fruity and gourmand notes. Citrus and floral notes
are found on the palate, which are balanced with the dynamic freshness and creamy finish
common to all expressions of Veuve Clicquot.
Veuve Clicquot RICH was created expressly to combine with a selection of ingredients that bring
out the Clicquologist—in anyone. Mixologists selected the ingredients that will add a unique twist
to our wine, supported by Dominique Demarville. The signature notes of the wine are magnified
by the presence of selected ingredients: pineapple, grapefruit zest, cucumber, celery, peppers or
tea, all on the rocks. With a goal to express versatility and the possibility to create one’s own
tasting experience, Veuve Clicquot RICH is an exciting new way to embody the So Clicquot twist.
