Launched in 1972, a tribute to Madame Clicquot named "La Grande Dame de la Champagne" is an exclusive blend of eight traditional grand crus reaching a peak of refinement.

Created in 1962 and launched in 1972 to celebrate the bicentenary of the House, La Grande Dame is a wine that is both a tribute to Madame Clicquot and the reflection of the Veuve Clicquot terroir. When it comes to describing the style of La Grande Dame, the following four words would summarize it well: freshness, silkiness, elegance and minerality.
Pursuing this quest for perfection, Dominique Dermarville, Veuve Clicquot’s inspired Cellar Master reveals his very first La Grande Dame creation via this new vintage: La Grande Dame 2008.

Tasting Notes: 

Sight: On the eye, La Grande Dame 2008 light gold color has a surprising glint.

Nose: The initial nose reveals a strong attack, both aerial and delicate. Upon being released it presents notes of dried fruits (almonds, figs, apricots), ripe white fruits (pears), and finally, subtle toasted notes of hazelnut and praline. Thus, those luscious pastry notes are well balanced with the blend’s freshness and clarity.

Palate: On the palate, the attack is strong and sharp. La Grande Dame 2008 bestows a silky texture upon young fruits, carried by citrus and red fruits (cherry) notes. The Pinot Noir, signature of the Veuve Clicquot’s style, shines extraordinarily by its freshness, minerality and power. La Grande Dame 2008 is a perfect combination of complexity, structure and strength.

Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 is a great wine for gastronomy. This cuvée will pair extremely well with oysters, fish tartare, seafood or even chicken with sesame.

This wine will still be perfect for an aperitif for some years to come. A large glass would bring out all the magic in this entrancing wine. Serve at a temperature of 10-12 °C (50-54 °F). It can be enjoyed now and has an ageing potential of 15 years
