Veuve Clicquot is one of the most recognised champagnes in the world. The label, the anchor symbol and that exquisite taste…Veuve has featured in celebrations from life to the big screen throughout the ages.
Blackbeard’s and Big Daddy’s are the distributors of this legendary champagne in the Cayman Islands, perfect for your wedding or any other significant occasion. After all, what is a wedding without Veuve?
You might be interested to know that a very savvy businesswoman, Madame Clicquot, is behind the success of Veuve Clicquot, as she had to take over when her husband Philippe died at a very young age. It is thanks to her that brides and grooms raise their glasses in a toast and sip the effervescent liquid that has represented hope and joy for centuries.
The history of Veuve Clicquot
The anchor, the Christian symbol for hope and rigour, was chosen in 1798 by Philippe Clicquot, the founder of the House, as the cork brand, the only distinguishing mark in the era before labels. As a symbol of hope, the anchor was a perfect emblem for a young entrepreneur with faith in the prosperity of his newly founded business. Madame Clicquot continued to use the same cork brand when she took over the running of the House in 1805. In keeping the anchor emblem throughout the centuries, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin remains faithful to the signs and symbols of its roots.
Champagne is a wine of legend. The entire history of the Veuve Clicquot House is marked by mythical wines, all of which respect the demand for quality that was the force that drove Madame Clicquot. True to this heritage, the House is proud of its motto: “Only one quality, the finest”. A short lineage of just 10 Cellar Masters has led this quest for quality, thereby ensuring the continuity of the Veuve Clicquot style: strength and complexity.
The experts at Blackbeard’s and Big Daddy’s recommend either the Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label or the Veuve Clicquot Rosé for your wedding. The yellow label is of course the most recognisable, and its classic golden champagne is one seen in many a glass at celebrations. However, if you would like to be a bit different and add a rosy hue to the proceedings, Veuve Clicquot Rosé could be just what you’re looking for.
Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label
Grapes from 50 to 60 different crus, or growing areas, are used to produce the Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label. The strength of this golden-yellow wine is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes on the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to age in the bottle. Brut Carte Jaune offers a perfect balance of finesse and forcefulness.
Veuve Clicquot Rosé
As the “pink” expression of Brut Carte Jaune, Veuve Clicquot Rosé shares the same structure. To complete this base, the Cellar Master adds a blend of red wines sourced from selected black grapes to ensure the marvellous balance of this unique Rosé wine.
It offers the eye radiant colour and its nose is intense and elegant. Notes of raspberry, wild strawberry and cherry predominate, followed by a touch of dried fruits and pastry. Elegant and sensual, the wine offers exceptional balance and surprising intensity.
Whatever you choose, make sure you add vibrancy and verve to your wedding with Veuve Clicquot Champagne from Blackbeard’s and Big Daddy’s.
