Henri-Louis Walbaum and brother-in-law Auguste Heidsieck created one of the most sought after champagnes ever.
In 1895, the firm already shipped over 1,5 million bottles worldwide.In 1818, Heidsieck & Co Monopole was appointed suppliers of champagne to the king of Prussia, emperor of Germany; in 1911, it was appointed suppliers of champagne to the English court.
In 1933, Heidsieck & Co Monopole champagnes features at the Swedish court and at the table of Csar Nicolas II (the latter ordered over 400 000 bottles a year for his personal use).
