Celebrating the new vintage,
Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2012
by Yayoi Kusama
The iconic Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, sends a cheerful message to the whole world by imagining a unique, joyful and colorful creation specifically made for Veuve Clicquot.
Yayoi Kusama adorns the La Grande Dame 2012 case and bottle with her iconic symbols. The opulent flower symbolizes vital energy, love and celebration of life.
The polka dots, Yayoi Kusama's signature patterns, are reworked like champagne bubbles to embody La Grande Dame 2012.
TWO FASCINATING WOMEN,
TWO PARALLEL DESTINIES
From Yayoi Kusama’s work to Madame Clicquot’s development of the House of Veuve Clicquot, these two daring figures demonstrate strong and flawless commitment. And today, their destinies converge in an unparalleled collaboration.
I looked up to see that the ceiling, the windows,
and the columns seemed to be plastered with the same red floral pattern.
and the entire universe covered with red flowers,
and in that instant my soul was obliterated and I was restored,
This was not an illusion but reality itself.
My Heart That Blooms in the Darkness of Night
La grande dame 2012: the glory of pinot noir
Madame Clicquot believed that Pinot Noir had the broadest range of expression and potential to create the best champagne.
"Our black grapes give the finest white wines.”
La Grande Dame, is a showcase of the House’s excellence. It perfectly expresses its love for Pinot Noir, which since the 2008 vintage, has represented over 90% of the blend.
