‘Veuve Cliquot’ is a prestigious Champagne House and brand located in Reims. The full name is ‘Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin’. ‘Veuve Clicquot’ means ‘The Widow Clicquot’, but the champagne is usually referred as ‘Veuve Clicquot’. The official website can be found here.
After Monsieur Clicquot died, his widow (née Ponsardin) took charge of the company. Madame Clicquot is credited with one of the great breakthroughs in the manufacture of champagne for inventing (with the assistance of her cellar-master) the riddling racks which made the process of dégorgement more efficient.
