HistoryEdit

Delbeck was a Flemish banker who invested in vineyards, and the husband of baronne Balsamie Ponsardin who was a niece of the Veuve Clicquot. Delbeck champagne found favour with the court of Louis-Philippe of France, and was in 1838 named the official Champagne of the French monarchy. Subsequently Delbeck is the exclusive Champagne allowed to bear the royal emblem & the motto "Fournisseurs de l'Ancienne Cour de France".[citation needed] The reputation of Delbeck grew during the years 1870 to 1912, and in 1884 it was the 3rd largest Champagne imported to the United States and Canada.[citation needed]
