First Women of Champagne, Veuve Clicquot

EDITOR’S CHOICE HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY: “Barbe-Nicole is a strong, determined woman, who defies Napoleon to make her business a success. Fascinating details about winemaking and everything that goes into it: the soil, climate, barrels, glass bottles, and the various blends of grapes. All these things and more affect the smell and flavor of the wine. I felt I could smell the wine along with Barbe-Nicole, because Rosenberg’s descriptions are so vivid.”

WRITER’S DIGEST 2022: “Barbe-Nicole is a captivating main character, particularly with her inheritance of “Le Nez” and the effect on her life. From grapes to pigs, the adventures she gets into with her nose are fascinating in detailed and engaging ways. The champagne empire she builds is admirable, as is her relationship with Francois and its challenges.”

Publisher’s Weekly BookLife Prize: “This effervescent historical novel paints a richly detailed portrait of the enterprising Veuve Clicquot.”

""The sun-drenched vineyards of France, a real-life heroine who against all odds refuses to give up her dreams... and champagne. What's not to love? And that's just what Rebecca Rosenberg delivers in Champagne Widows. Barbe-Nicole Clicquot was a woman ahead of her time, a fascinating blend of ingenuity, heart, and sheer tenacity, with a nose for wine and a head for business. Note: This richly woven tale is best savored slowly, though with all delicious things, it won't be easy." ~ Barbara Davis, best-selling author of The Last of the Moon Girls."
