Veuve Clicquot Champagne
Veuve Clicquot Champagne is available at The Champagne Company and bears the distinctive yellow label - one of the most easily and widely recognisable Champagne brands, world-famous for their innovative gift sets. In 1772 Philippe Clicquot established himself as a wine merchant under the name Clicquot and was the first Champagne House to ship rosé champagne. In 1810 the House took on the name, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin and produced its very first Vintage Champagne. Nicole-Barbe Ponsardin widow of Philippe Clicquot's son Francois developed the business both technically and commercially.
In order to protect the house from imitations, she introduced the distinctive and famous yellow label now recognised at sporting events and parties around the world. Veuve Clicquot produces an excellent range of Rosé, Brut and Demi-Sec Champagnes and of course luxury vintages such as La Grande Dame.
The Yellow Label
Over the years the label took on a more intense, almost orange hue, making it easier to recognize Veuve Clicquot champagne in dark wine cellars. In 1945, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Sec was renamed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut, dressed in the Yellow Label we know today, carrying on a tradition that thrives 140 years later.
