La Grande Dame
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.
THE HOUSE'S HIDDEN TREASURE
In the mouth, the opening is taut, the texture rich and the structure well-defined, making this an ample and generous wine. Like a sunbeam, the finish is long and expressive and completes the vintage’s signature. The extended aging of this vintage brings depth and power to the wine.

AGING IN JEROBOAMS
This exceptional format has greater depth and complexity. The ratio of wine volume to the area of contact with the air is lower than in a standard 75cl bottle, meaning that the wines can be laid down longer and suffer less from the vagaries of time and oxidation.
The extended period maturing on lees in our chalk cellars, where conditions are ideal, enriches the wine with complex aromas and gives it flexibility, texture and depth.
