When he founded his wine merchant business under the label "Clicquot" in 1772, Philippe Clicquot had a clear ambition: cross all borders. He conquered Europe and then Russia in 1780, followed by the United States in 1782. He was joined at the head of the House in 1798 by his son, Fran?ois Clicquot, who had recently married Barbe Ponsardin. Seven years later, following the untimely death of Fran?ois Clicquot, his young widow ("veuve" in French), just 27 years old, took over the family business.
The wine is dry with fine, lively bubbles, delicate pear and apple fruit aromas and a crisp finish. Whether served at the beginning of a beautiful evening for two, or sipped throughout a lively meal?with friends, this celebrated bubbly has versatility at the table that can be shared time and time again. The elegant mousse can refresh your palate for the next bite, and the greater complexity and intensity?of our Prosecco Superiore DOCG will not get overwhelmed by heavier dishes such as pasta carbonara with shrimp, grilled vegetables drizzled with Italian olive oil and parmesan cheese, or simply prepared filet of beef with rosemary.?
