Barb-Nicol Ponsardin, shaped by Champagne, would become the woman and label we know as Veuve Clicquot.
Born before the French Revolution to wealthy parents, she would marry the son of her father's business partner, Francois Clicquot in 1798. It would be the start of the Clicqout house, that would grow from very small and humble beginnings to the world renowned label all due to Madame Clicquot.
With a young child by her side, the widow Clicquout became the first woman to head an international company and the first female champagne producers. Listen to the full episode about the life of the fascinating, trailblazing and inventive woman.
