History:
In 1772, Philippe Clicquot-Muiron established the original enterprise which, in time, became the house of Veuve Clicquot. In 1775, it was credited to be the first Champagne house to produce Rosé Champagne, and the method of adding red wine during the production of Rosé Champagne. Philippe`s son, François Clicquot, married Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin in 1798 and died in 1805, leaving his widow (veuve in French) in control of a company variously involved in banking, wool trading, and Champagne production. She became the first woman to take over a Champagne house. Under Madame Clicquot`s guidance, the firm focused entirely on the latter to great success. During the Napoleonic Wars, Madame Clicquot made strides in establishing her wine in royal courts throughout Europe, notably that of Imperial Russia, thus becoming the first Champagne House to ship Champagne past The Blockade to Russia in 1811. By the time she died in 1866 Veuve Clicquot had become both a substantial Champagne house and a respected brand. Easily recognised by its distinctive bright yellow labels, the wine holds a royal warrant of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. Since 1987 the Veuve Clicquot company has been part of the Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy group of luxury brands, and today owns a controlling interest in New Zealand`s Cloudy Bay Vineyards.
