About Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, but it was his daughter-in-law, Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin who would catapult it to greatness. The empire that Madam Clicquot built now includes 360 hectares of vines, including 12 of the 17 Grand Crus in Champagne.

Pale orange-gold. Initially a bit tart on the nose and palate, but opened quickly to show rich, smooth fruit flavors, thorough ripeness of fruit and plenty of palate presence. Ripe, lingering back end. Big, dinner-table Champagne that should benefit from time in bottle.
