La grande dame 2012: the glory of pinot noir
Madame Clicquot believed that Pinot Noir had the broadest range of expression and potential to create the best champagne.
"Our black grapes give the finest white wines.”
La Grande Dame, is a showcase of the House’s excellence. It perfectly expresses its love for Pinot Noir, which since the 2008 vintage, has represented over 90% of the blend.
