Champagne house Veuve Clicquot recognizes that several of the champagne bottles turned out to be Veuve Clicquot:
Three of the bottles found last summer were opened on november 16 and confirmed to be Veuve Clicquot: the brand is clearly legible on the inside of the cork.
A deep yellow colour, refined hints of flowers and citrus and length in taste are the striking characteristics of this still sparkling champagne. It is intact yet almost two centuries old, as if it had travelled in a time machine.
The Baltic route was often used for shipments to Russia, which sealed the early commercial successes of the champagne House, founded in 1772. The branding discovered in Marienhamn, Aland Islands, includes a comet which was added to her logo by Madame Clicquot, to pay tribute to the one that went through the skies of Champagne in 1811, a year of a superlative harvest. This historical discovery confirms Madame Clicquot’s motto: “One quality only, the finest.”
