One of the 17 Grande Marque Houses from Champagne. Dating back to 1772 the house has a rich and varied history. 'Veuve' translates as widow and is a reference to Barbe Nicole Ponsardin who ran the company from a very young age due to her husband's early and untimely death. Her influence was clear within the house of Veuve Clicquot (the label's distinctive colour still used today was her choice) but also spread across the Champagne region with her method of carifying the wine being adopted by all the producers to this day.
