Veuve Clicquot champagne epitomizes glamour, style, and luxury.
In The Widow Clicquot, Tilar J. Mazzeo brings to life-for
the first time-the fascinating woman behind the iconic yellow
label: Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin, who, after her husband''s
death, defied convention by assuming the reins of the fledgling
wine business they had nurtured together. Steering the company
through dizzying political and financial reversals, she became one
of the world''s first great businesswomen and one of the richest
women of her time.
As much a fascinating journey through the process of making this
temperamental wine as a biography of a uniquely tempered woman,
The Widow Clicquot is the captivating true story of a
legend and a visionary.
