7 Seas Luxury Cruises Cunard Cruise Line

Exclusive Champagne Bar by Veuve Clicquot

Cunard Line and the world famous Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin have agreed to create an elegant Champagne Bar aboard Cunard’s brand new, $780-million flagship Queen Mary 2, which is currently under construction in France.

The new 64-seat venue will be Veuve Clicquot’s first and only venture on a cruise line. Located in the fashionable Mayfair Shops area of the ship, the Veuve Clicquot Bar will feature a variety of Champagne, as well as a menu including caviar and foie gras.

According to Cécile Bonnefond, president of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, “We’re delighted that the house of Veuve Clicquot will be featured aboard Cunard’s sensational Queen Mary 2. We have every confidence that the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar will be a superb addition to this great new liner.”

“Veuve Clicquot has a rich history and tradition of offering the very finest quality to its patrons,” said Deborah Natansohn, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Cunard Line. “We’re thrilled that Queen Mary 2 will add to her list of ‘firsts,’ a shipboard Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar.”

Champagne of world renown
Clicquot, one of Champagne’s oldest and most prestigious houses, sold in more than 120 countries, was founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot. His son, François, married Nicole Barbe-Ponsardin in 1798. In 1805 Madame Clicquot was widowed at the age of 27. In only in four months' time she assembled the capital to assume control of the business.  In a Europe torn apart by Napoleon's wars, with French ports at times blockaded, Veuve (Widow) Clicquot managed to ship her champagnes to London and Russia, and she presented them in all the great European courts.  She was involved in the innovation of new production methods that are still used today in the productions of all champagnes. She bought plots of land in the best vineyards: Bouzy, Verzy and Verzenay (near Reims), Avize, and the Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Côte des Blancs. When she died in 1866, at the age of 89, Madame Clicquot left behind an empire devoted to the enjoyment of fine food and wine. The motto--“Only one quality, the finest” ("une seule qualité, la toute première")--is still the foundation upon which Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin has built its international reputation.
Veuve Clicquot with its trademark 150-year-old yellow/orange label--introduced by Madame Clicquot herself--is now one of the most famous champagnes in the world. Choose between the stunning Brut Carte Jaune, the legendary demi-sec, or the prestigious cuvée, 'La Grande Dame' named after the great lady herself. Veuve Clicquot is owned by Moët-Hennessy.
