Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brut La Grande Dame

Wine Details



Wine Description

(2004 Vintage) Veuve Clicquot's Prestige Cuvée, La Grande Dame, is a very great wine which pays homage to a very "grande dame de la Champagne," Madame Clicquot. The incomparable finesse of this cuvée results from a blend of eight of the House's traditional Grands Crus. This wine has a fine, complex fragrance, blending sweetness and nobility. It is smooth and silky in the mouth, with considerable substance and structure. A remarkable balance, with a fresh, harmonious finish.

    (1989 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Ripe, well-developed nose. Charming well-made, ripe, open.
  • International Wine Cellar
    (1993 Vintage) Complex, soil-inflected aromas of redcurrant, cranberry, mint, nutmeg and earth. Big and creamy, but also intensely flavored and penetrating. Offers excellent backbone but seems a bit less full and deep than normal for this cuvee-no doubt a function of the '93 vintage. Impeccably balanced Champagne. Steely lemony acidity became more apparent with aeration. Finishes very subtle and long.
