Bio

Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, any originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champange region and are exceptional in size and quality. As in Madame Clicquot's day, bottles age in the House's vast, vaulted cellars in Reims, portions of which were constructed some 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The remarkable madame Clicquot (1777-1866) is considered one of the first business-women of the modern era. Widowed in 1805 at the age of 27, Madame Veuve Clicquot (born Ponsardin) defied every convention of the day to take the help of her late husband's small Champagne House. She personally supervised cellar activites and introduced innovative production techniques still used today. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied Champagne.
