Madame Clicquot was a 19th Century widow (‘veuve’ in French) who took control of her late husband’s champagne business and built it into what is today.

Officially known as Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin and formed almost 250 years ago. Today it’s one of the biggest (and coolest!) French Champagne brands in the world.

“Only one quality, the finest” was Madame Clicquot’s motto.
