Veuve Clicquot is a French Champagne House based in Reims, founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot. In 1805, Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin took over the family business after being widowed at the young age of 27. She is credited with transforming Veuve Clicquot into one of the greatest Champagne Houses in the world, thereby becoming one of the first modern-day business women. Over her lifetime, she invented three of the most important innovations in champagne that are still practiced today. In 1810, she created the first vintage champagne by blending grapes from just one year’s harvest. In 1816, in order to find a way to clarify champagne, she invented the riddling table, today recognized as fundamental to the traditional champagne production method. Finally in 1818, she created the first rosé champagne made through assemblage by blending her red wine with champagne.
Veuve Clicquot is synonymous with the art of living. The House style distinguishes itself through the dominance of Pinot Noir which gives strength, complexity and elegance to our wines. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is the signature champagne of the House. A perfect balance between power and finesse, its complexity comes from the predominant presence of Pinot Noir and Reserve Wines.
