Description

Veuve Clicquot

In 1805, at 27 years of age,

Nicole Barbe Ponsardin, Clicquot’s widow (in French ?veuve?), was forced to take charge of the flourishing French champagne house managed by her husband: Clicquot, a textile manufacturer that set up his winery in the French region of Champagne in 1772. Clicquot’s widow was a pioneer in a world managed by men, when she took charge of the winery and followed the path of innovation, that had been set by her husband’s father, who in 1775 designed the first rosé champagne of the history. Under the management of Nicole, in 1810 the company changed its name to Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, and produced the first champagne with the house vintage. The German Antoine Muller joined as winemaker and improved the champagne and revolutionised the Champagne producing market (advances such as the 'remuage' are the work of Muller).

The prestige of the producer has grown steadily and today it is one of the most popular Champagne houses, with its distinctive label, between yellow and orange, and its cutting-edge La Grande Dame, one of the most complex, fine champagnes. Currently integrated in the group of LVMH luxury brands, its widespread distribution makes it easy to find its wines in the market.

Veuve Clicquot controls about 400 hectares of vines, located between Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs.
