Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin


The Veuve Clicquot house was founded in 1798 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, he sadly died 7 years later, leaving his wife to run his business interests, one of them being the Champagne House.

She took to running the house extremely well, and it shortly became the Veuve (widow) Clicquot house, to honour her rare achievement in the early 19th century.
