Veuve Clicquot is a champagne house located in the Reims section of France that specializes in premium bubbly. It was originally founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron who had a son named François Clicquot. The house of Veuve Clicquot was soon established. They opened the door for Champagnes to become a house hold drink. Veuve is best known for being the first house to create a rose Champagne in 1775 by adding red wine during production. The first truly modern Champagne is considered to be the 1811 comet cintage of Veuve Clicquot. They used advanced methods to create the champagne through the technique of remuage – the process of adding carbonation. Philippe’s son took over the house with his wife Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, who he married in 1798.
