Special Offers from Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin was originally founded, as Maison Clicquot, in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron. The business, at the time, was not exclusively involved in Champagne wine production, and maintained ventures in banking and the wool trade. 

Champagne's most famous woman would appear in 1798 after marrying Francois Clicquot, the son of Philippe. Francois was most passionate about the wines of Maison Clicquot, and shared all of his knowledge of production and the business with his young wife. After the untimely death of her husband in 1805, Madame Clicquot assumed management of the business in spite of her age, only 27 years old, and the traditional gender roles of the time. 

Under her guidance, the company was redirected entirely towards the production and sale of Champagne wines. The 'Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin' as she would sign numerous letters to associates, demonstrated exceptional business savvy which saw sale of her wines throughout Europe. She, alongside her Cellar Master, is also credited with creating the first rose Champagne, and with the invention of the riddling table; saving time and precious wine during the disgorgement process. 

At her death in 1866, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin is one of the world's most respected Champagne brands, with the signature of the 'Grand Dame de Champagne' marking every label of its wines.
