Veuve Clicquot and Key People

vuv klee-khoe

Type of Producer
Veuve Clicquot has a moderate amount of vineyards for production (including holdings supplied by LVMH, they have access to over 1200 acres), but that is not nearly enough to supply their needs. The remainder is purchased from more than 1000 growers. The French regulations designate Veuve Clicquot as a Negociant Manipulant (a producer who buys grapes from growers).

Overall Producer Style
Veuve Clicquot style tends toward full bodied and rich. Biscuity notes develop with age.

Annual Production
More than 15 million bottles are produced annually. Actual production numbers are proprietary.
