    Veuve Clicquot is an absolute benchmark of non-vintage Champagne. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure, a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend, & Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse. The perfect Champagne for every situation. Rated 90/100 from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, & Wine & Spirits magazine.

    Country Description

    France

    Practically all the most famous grape varieties used in the world's wines are French varieties, and wine is produced all throughout France. France is the second largest wine producer in the world after Italy. The wines produced range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally to more modest wines usually only seen within France. In many respects, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity, as evidenced by different grape varieties, production methods and different classification systems in the various regions. Some of the more famous wine regions in France include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire, Chablis and the Rhône valley.

    Region Description

    Champagne

    The Champagne wine region is a historic province in the northeast of France. The area is best known for the production of the sparkling white wine that bears the region's name. The principal grapes grown in the region include Chardonnay, Pinot noir, and Pinot Meunier. Ancient oceans left behind chalk subsoil deposits when they receded 70 million years ago. Earthquakes that rocked the region over 10 million years ago pushed the marine sediments of belemnite fossils up to the surface to create the belemnite chalk terrain. The belemnite in the soil allows it to absorb heat from the sun and gradually release it during the night as well as providing good drainage. This soil contributes to the lightness and finesse that is characteristic of Champagne wine.
