Behind the Label
- The Maison
An intrepid visionary and creator
Madame Clicquot brought an innovative approach to winemaking, inventing the riddling process, which made it easier to remove sediment from champagne and improve its clarity. Under her direction, the maison produced the first vintage champagne and the first blend of rosé champagne.
Taking time to craft luxury
Today, 11 winemakers meticulously conduct tastings during a six-month period. Led by Dominique Demarville, only the 10th cellar master in more than 240 years, the team creates the Yellow Label blend from over 400 reserve wines to create a rich, predominantly pinot noir champagne.
