Winery / Vineyard · Food & Drink
Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot-Ponsardin is best known for its iconic yellow-label champagne. Vintage premium label cuvée, includes La Grande Dame, Carte Jaune, and Clicquot Rich Reserve. You can taste these and more of their signature styles in the visitor's center, or you can experience a tour of the cellars.

Your choice of tours betwen the "In the Footsteps of Madame Clicquot" or "Discovery" tours, includes a journey into the cellars followed by a tasting, by advance reservation. This winery is owned under the label Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH).

In 2008, an unopened bottle of Veuve Clicquot was discovered inside a sideboard in Torosay Castle, Isle of Mull, Scotland. The 1893 bottle was in mint condition having been kept in the dark; it was the oldest bottle known to exist. You can see it on display at the visitor center, a champagne regarded as priceless.

  • We just walked in a little bit after 12:30. Asked at the reception to join a guided tour. We waited 35min for the next available one. Tours are either in English and French. We could wait inside in their lounge area until the tour started. Lounge has AC which was great since it was 29°C outside. The group were small, max 7 people, which made it easy and private. We had the cellar tour + rich tasting. Would definitely recommend that if it's your first time, the non-vintage champagne is always easy to test else where, if you ain't looking for the premium tasting (we didn't ask what different tours or tasting they had just to join the next one available). Guide was thurow and explain everything nice, clearly and also answered any questions. We payed 35euro each and that included the tour + 2 glasses of rich champagne. They have a shop there as well where you can buy bottles of all the different ranges of champagne, vintage, yellow label, magnum sizes, boxes and other branded items like coolers and so on.
  • Had a lovely time here. My mom’s heart is forever warm after visiting here. Staff very friendly & knowledgeable. The wine cellar so cool. Only did two tastings but they were heavenly. The history about this place is incredible. An experience like no other. 🥂👏
  • Didn't do the tour, came for the boutique shop. Took plenty of pictures, staff very friendly and informative. Brought a glass for €10 and a few items. All reasonably priced. Umbrella at €25 was very good. Had a wander around the different rooms, all elegant and fun.
  • My wife and I did the "footsteps of Madame Clicquot" tour and it was amazing! The cellar was gorgeous and the tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. The visitors center is extremely nice and the champagne is off the charts good!
  • What a great day in Reims! Couldn't recommend enough. Quick tour of vueve and learning some history on Champagne followed by a couple vintage glasses and gift shop. I recommend a day trip to Reims and checking it out. Quick train from Paris.
