The estate and the vineyard
Created in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot, this house quickly became a staple in the world of champagne, having obtained the right to produce rosé champagne in 1775.
In 1805, Philippe’s son, François, inherited the company, but he died prematurely, so it was his wife, Nicole, born under the name of Ponsardin, who took over the management of this majestic champagne house.
The Maison veuve Clicquot was able to produce non vintage champagnes, bringing between 20 and 40% of reserve wines in these champagnes, having up to 20 years of age, thus indicating a beautiful intensity.
