La Grande Dame is a tribute to Madame Clicquot and to the creative and elegant souls who have followed in her footsteps.
A wine to reflect the image of La Grande Dame herself. Madame Clicquot used her determination, intuition and vision to choose and aquire exceptional grand crus parcels with exceptional grapes.
La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 offers a beautiful pink gold with light copper hues.
It is full-bodied and smooth, then becomes refined with fresh aromas. The Pinot Noir’s generosity resonates beautifully after a slow and long aging in the Veuve Clicquot cellars. The wine shows powerful notes of red fruits (raspberry and strawberry), combined with citrus notes (blood orange, grapefruit), and finally holds a perfect balance between subtle and spicy with notes of red berries, rooibos tea and fine leather.
The attack is delicate and smooth. In full harmony with the nose, fruit outshines the palate and presents intensity in red and black fruits (cherry, strawberry, blackberry and blackcurrant). The strength and youth are carved by long aging notes, dried flowers and smoky notes, presenting an incredible complexity which is worthy of the best Pinot Noir of Champagne.
