La Grande Dame showcases the House’s excellence, perfectly expressing its love for Pinot Noir.
A tribute to Madame Clicquot and the creative and elegant souls who have followed in her footsteps, this wine is in the image of La Grande Dame herself. For the House of Veuve Clicquot, La Grande Dame 1990 is the champagne of the millennium, launched in 1999 to inaugurate the 2000s.
Our hidden treasure. The House decided to draw prestigious magnums and jeroboams from this year endowed with exceptional sunshine.
On the nose, La Grande Dame 1990 in magnum offers highly expressive opening notes of candied fruit - apricot, mango, fig, quince and dates. These are then joined by warm, gourmet patisserie notes - marzipan, tarte tatin, almonds and pralines. More complex spicy notes such as golden tobacco, dried leaves and morel mushrooms round off the richness of this wine.
In the mouth, the opening is like a sunburst, fresh and energetic and the texture is both rich and silky. The prolonged aging of this vintage gives the wine depth and power.
