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.

The Cuvée

With the exceptionally fine weather conditions in September, the grapes ripened beautifully. Harvesting, which took place from 23 September to 13 October, resulted in some fine, perfectly healthy grapes. The Pinot Noir wines are fruity and full-bodied; the Chardonnay wines have a lot of distinction.

La Grande Dame 2004 is an exclusive blend of our 8 traditional grand crus: Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzy, Verzenay for the Pinot Noir (61%) and Avize, Oger, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay (39%).

Tasting notes


Luminous, sparkling gold with amber highlights

Plenty of effervescence


A definite mineral base

Noble fruit

Remarkable intensity

Pale gold colour. Fine nose with fresh fruit and stone fruit notes, with discreet hints of brioche. It shows seductive fullness on the palate, and its distinctive taste is structured by an ethereal freshness, while its persistance increases in complexity as the seconds go by.
