The Lady Clicquot?

I recently snapped this photo after my Christmas dinner with David; it's a photo of the agrafe from our bottle of Veuve Clicquot. Never noticing the "Rembrandt" before, I asked David: "Is this the Lady Clicquot?" I did some research and found out that it is rather, "The Widow Cliquot." You can read all about this famous widow in the book, The Widow Clicquot: The Story of a Champagne Empire and the Woman Who Ruled It!
