Nice blog. Good taste in champagne…need I say more??
Welcome back to our weekly wine quiz. This week, I decided to contribute a question about the famous Veuve Clicquot. While many wine geeks have derided the wine since it has become a bit ubiquitous (and over-priced, in my opinion), I still enjoy it. It generally has more pinot noir than chardonnay or pinot meunier, which is right up my alley. Don’t be afraid to also share your thoughts on Veuve: like it, love it, hate it? Find it just way too cliché?
As for the question:
In 1805, after Madame Clicquot-Ponsardin had only been married for a few years, her husband, François died and she became ‘Veuve’ (French for widow) Clicquot-Ponsardin. She greatly expanded the family business of making champagne, making the company a huge success. The success of Veuve Clicquot was due, in part, to a process that she developed.
What innovation is attributed to Veuve Clicquot?
