Description

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin is a French champagne house based in Reims that specializes in premium range products. Philippe Clicquot founded the company in 1772 and is now one of the largest champagne houses in the world. He was a very successful textile merchant, banker and owner of multiple vineyards throughout the country. To strengthen the power of two big business families, Philippe Clicquot’s son Francois Clicquot married Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, daughter of Nicolas Ponsardin. Philippe Clicquot retired left the champagne business to his son Francois in 1801.

The champagne house would not have been what it is today, until Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, also known as Madame Clicquot or Veuve Clicquot who took on her husband’s business when widowed at age 27 in 1805. Under her ownership and skill with wine, she earned the nickname "Grande Dame of Champagne".

Madame Clicquot was credited with major breakthroughs in the champagne industry, creating the first known vintage champagne in 1810. She also invented the riddling table process to clarify and identify champagne in 1816. In 1818, she invented the first known blended rose by blending still red and wine champagne wines. This process is still used today by a majority of champagne producers. During her time, she also played an important role in establishing champagne as a favoured drink of high society and nobility throughout Europe.

This was all achieved by Madame Clicquot during the early 19th century where the Napoleonic Code denied women of civil and political rights, including prohibiting them from working, voting, earning money and getting an education without the consent of their father or husband. Only widows in the French society was free and allowed to run their own business.

Veuve Clicquot blends 30-45% reserve wines with grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different crus. The Pinot Noir predominance (50-55%) provides the structure that is so typically Veuve Clicquot, while Chardonnay (28-33%) adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and a touch of Meunier (15-20%) rounds out the blend. Bottled at the standard 12% ABV.
