Soil Specificity

The soils in Champagne is predominantly limestone with a high level of chalk. This consists of granules of calcite formed from the fragile shells of marine micro-organisms. The outcrops of sedimentary rock are also composed of chalk, marl and limestone. This type of soil provides good drainage and also imparts that particular mineral flavour found in certain Champagne wines.

A Passionate Lineage

Veuve Clicquot was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot. This house rapidly became famous, both locally and internationally, under the run of his well-known daughter in law - Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin. This estate is famous for the invention of the process of riddling - removing the dead yeast cells to give a clear appearance to the finished product. Veuve Clicquot was the wife of Francois, the only son of Philippe Clicquot. Taking over the family business, their hope was to spread their brand. The attempt failed when Francois Clicquot died in 1805 during the Napoleonic Wars. Barbe-Nicole continued on her own to develop the business as we know it today.
