Veuve Clicquot is a French Champagne house based in Reims, specializing in premium products. Founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, Veuve Clicquot played an important role in establishing champagne as a favored drink of haute bourgeoisie and nobility throughout Europe.
Veuve Clicquot is featured in several films including Casablanca and Babette’s Feast.
Veuve Clicquot is mentioned in Downton Abbey Series 6, Episode 1.
Veuve Clicquot is mentioned as having been consumed by the fictional British Secret Service operative, James Bond (written by Ian Fleming). Bond drank Clicquot, Veuve Clicquot, and Veuve Clicquot Rosé in at least three of the original novels: Casino Royale, Diamonds Are Forever, and Thunderball.
In Gore Vidal‘s historical novel Lincoln, a prostitute serves U.S. President Abraham Lincoln‘s personal secretary John Hay Veuve Clicquot at a bordello—where it is known as “the Widow”—on Inauguration night, March 4, 1861.
In July 2008 an unopened bottle of Veuve Clicquot was discovered inside a sideboard in Torosay Castle, Isle of Mull, Scotland. The 1893 bottle was in mint condition, having been kept in the dark, and was the oldest bottle known to exist. It is now on display at the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin visitor centre in Reims and is regarded as priceless.
