Champagne Brut 'Cuvée Saint - Petersbourg' (750 ml. boxed) - Veuve Clicquot

Champagne Brut 'Cuvèe Saint-Petersbourg' by Veuve Clicquot is a dedication to the courage of Madame Clicquot, who in 1814, despite the continental blockade, managed to export it to the courts of St. Petersburg. It is obtained with the same blends as the Yellow Label, but the production method differentiates it, as it ages for 3 or 4 years on the lees. It is therefore more evolved and more charged: the notes of vanilla, pastry and bread are more marked, but still perfectly integrated in a sip of great finesse and balance. A historic Champagne that releases all the essence of the maison.

THE WINE

Champagne Brut 'Cuvèe Saint-Petersbourg' by Veuve Clicquot is a dedication to the courage of Madame Clicquot, who in 1814, despite the continental blockade, managed to export it to the courts of St. Petersburg. It is obtained with the same blends as the Yellow Label, but the production method differentiates it, as it ages for 3 or 4 years on the lees. It is therefore more evolved and more charged: the notes of vanilla, pastry and bread are more marked, but still perfectly integrated in a sip of great finesse and balance. A historic Champagne that releases all the essence of the maison.

THE HOUSE

It all began in 1772, when Philippe Clicquot, a businessman and landowner, founded "a négoce de vin à l'enseigne Clicquot". A small company, which aspires to go beyond borders to make the new name of Champagne known to the whole world. In 1798, François Clicquot, son of the founder of the Maison, married Barbe Nicole Ponsardin. It will be the latter who, after having inherited from her husband all the passion and all the skills for the production and marketing of Champagne, will be able to grow the company until it becomes one of the most famous and renowned Maison not only in the area of Reims, but of the whole Champagne region. Barbe Nicole Ponsardin, in fact, widowed at the age of twenty-seven, after the death of her husband firmly took over the reins of the company, becoming in fact one of the first great female entrepreneurs in modern history, known by all with the nickname of "widow Clicquot ”, Or“ Veuve Clicquot ”, hence the name of the Maison itself.

Under the guidance of the young widow, some insights were learned that benefited the whole denomination. From the first vintage Champagne, that of 1810, to the perfecting of the remuage technique, passing through the development of the liqueur de tirage useful for the second refermentation in the bottle, there is no expectation that she did not follow it personally.

Without forgetting, then, his great commercial ability, thanks to which Barbe Nicole Ponsardin herself managed in 1814 to overcome the continental block that immobilized Europe in mercantile exchanges, making her Champagne land directly in Russia, in St. Petersburg, with what today is not surprisingly known as the “cuvée Saint Petersbourg”.

A story of excellence, in short, which currently, under the sign of the luxury group LVMH owner of the Maison since 1986, continues thanks to Champagne with a unique personality, always recognizable in their immediate elegance and their extraordinary refinement.
