Cellar in the Sea!
The Veuve Clicquot Experiment
By Cocktail Culture Staff

Veuve Clicquot have launched a "Cellar in the Sea" Experiment. Veuve Clicquot Cellar master Dominique Demarville launched the innovative Cellar in the Sea experiment on June 18, 2014 on Silverskär Island in Äland, Finland. Why? Remember the famed shipwreck containing 47 bottles of Veuve Clicquot dating from 1840s discovered in 2010 in the Äland archipelago? This got Dominique Demarville thinking about a Veuve Clicquot Cellar in the sea experiment; a 40 year venture to further enhance the House’s understanding of the aging process. This is to see how the submersion of a selection of Veuve Clicquot wines will fare in the Baltic Sea, within a specifically designed underwater cellar. The bottles chosen include Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label in 75mL and magnums, Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rosé 2004 and Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec. The wines will be compared to a similar selection of bottles kept in the Houses’s cellars in Rheims.
