Friday 04 Jan 2008: Veuve Clicquot
The Veuve Clicquot Champagne House is named after Madame Clicquot who took over her husband's small Champagne business when he died in 1805. At that time most champagnes were cloudy and required decanting. Madame Clicquot is generally credited with inventing the process of remuage, in which bottles are placed upside down in a rack and turned each day to encourage the yeast to eventually settle in the neck of the bottle, so it can easily be removed to produce a clear product.
