CLOS19 - CELEBRATE AT VEUVE CLICQUOT itinerary:
Let us collect you and your guests from Paris or from Reims and deliver you in style to the Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa. Reset with an aperitif on the terrace overlooking the vineyards followed by dinner at Michelin starred restaurant, The Royal. Next morning, en route to your favourite champagne house, you will start with an exclusive tour of Veuve Clicquot's world. We can stop at invitation-only Hôtel du Marc (only possible for groups of 12 people max)– the historic home of Madame Clicquot, who transformed Veuve Clicquot with her visionary spirit, and became known as the Grande Dame of Champagne. Then on to the House's atmospheric cellars. Their cavernous depths were created from ancient chalk mines and are celebrated today as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Finally, explore the prestigious Verzy vineyard with an expert member of the wine-making team, or grab a yellow bicycle and discover your surroundings freestyle.
By now, it’ll be time for aperitifs. So step straight from the vineyard into the garden of Manoir de Verzy – a stunning 19th-century house, nestled among the vines. And what better way to start your summer party than with sabrage? If you’ve never opened a bottle of champagne with a sabre before, worry not. Veuve Clicquot’s hosts will guide you all the way.
Then let the Yellow Label champagne (or Rich cocktails or Rosé, if you prefer) flow at a garden party popping with Veuve Clicquot’s signature colour. Yes, the flowers, the tables, the waiters’ bow ties... even the canapés bring a playful splash of yellow. If your guests are up for it, we’ve got sunglasses and accessories to convert them to a certain colour too. And, in case of rain, there’s a stock of yellow umbrellas ready to go!
Lunch is entirely on your terms. Go formal in the Manoir’s dining room with four courses paired with vintages of Veuve Clicquot’s prestige cuvée, La Grande Dame. Or chill in the garden with an elegant outdoor lunch such as grilled lobster or a side of beef and add large or unusual bottles for a touch of je ne sais quoi. Cake is a must, of course, so leave that to us. Tell us your favorite flavor and let the experts in Michelin-starred kitchen do the rest.
Then enjoy your afternoon exactly how you’d like it. Fancy live music, your own photographer to capture fleeting moments of the day? We can arrange it. If there’s a date you want to mark, let’s see if there’s a vintage champagne to match. Or get creative with our party artist, for a unique take on this special occasion. For you, anything is possible (even Veuve Clicquot in the snow!). Just tell us your ideas and let’s get planning. Additional fees will apply.
As the day winds down, we’ll transport you back to your hotel to rest and relax. If you wish to continue the party, there are Michelin-starred restaurants nearby to discover – and if there’s more champagne on your wish list, the teams at Moët & Chandon and Ruinart will be delighted to welcome you.
