ps - Wikipedia says...
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin is a champagne house in Reims, France and a brand of champagne, easily recognised by its distinctive bright yellow bottle labels. Founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron, Veuve Clicquot (roughly pronounced vuhv klee-koh) played an important role in establishing champagne as the beverage of choice of European nobility and the wealthy bourgeoisie. Situated in Reims, Veuve Clicquot has been part of the Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy group of luxury brands since 1987.
Veuve Clicquot now owns a controlling interest in New Zealand's Cloudy Bay Vineyards.

I recently visited Veuve Clicqout in Reims (the French pronounce Reims like a nasally "Rons") and it is a very classy place. The cellars are old Roman chalk mines which have been expanded over the years to something like (from memory) 30 Km of storage. All the major French brands are around Reims, give it a visit if you are in Northern France.
