La Grande Dame

Created in 1972 to celebrate the bicentenary of the House, La Grande Dame is a tribute to Madame Clicquot also known as ‘La Grande Dame de la Champagne’. An exclusive blend of eight of our historical Grands Crus, it is a mineral and fresh expression of the Veuve Clicquot style.


Exceptional weather conditions in September brought all the grapes to optimum ripeness. Between September 23 and October 13, we harvested some beautiful grapes in a perfect state of health. The Pinot Noir wines are fruity and full-bodied, and the Chardonnay wines have great distinction.

La Grande Dame 2004 Rosé is an exclusive blend of our 8 traditional grand crus: Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzy, Verzenay for the Pinot Noir (52%) and Avize, Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay (33%).

La Grande Dame Rosé 2004 also contains red wine (15%) made entirely of Pinot Noir from Bouzy. Most of the grapes come from Clos Colin, one of our best vineyards, situated right in the centre of this Grand Cru.

A definite mineral base

Noble fruit

Remarkable intensity

On the palate, the wine is substantial and full-bodied. The texture is crisp and silky. The minerality of the chalk resonates brilliantly with its meaty structure and amplifies the length of the finish.

Philippe has been the head of oenology since 1985, overseeing wine blend creations for the House. Winemaking is his passion, and the team is always striving to do better while it consistently maintains quality. There are days that the team tastes to fifty different wines in order to define the Clicquot style; this style is the identity of the House, passed on from harvest to harvest, from one generation to the next.
