VEUVE CLICQUOT LA GRANDE DAME 2008 CHAMPAGNE

First launched in 1972 for Veuve Clicquot's bicentennial, the rare and remarkable La Grande Dame champagne is a tribute to Madame Clicquot. And it has never been more audacious than the 2008 vintage!

In his first La Grande Dame creation, Cellar Master Dominique Demarville reveals a blend with 92% Pinot Noir - the highest percentage in Veuve Clicquot's history. The 8% remaining is Chardonnay from the House's Grand Cru in Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger.

Tasting Notes:
La Grande Dame 2008 has a surprising glint of light gold color. Initially it reveals a strong attack, both aerial and delicate. Upon being released it presents notes of dried fruits (almonds, figs, apricots), ripe white fruits (pears), and finally, subtle toasted notes of hazelnut and praline. The luscious pastry notes are well balanced with the blend's freshness and clarity. The attack is strong and sharp. La Grande Dame 2008 bestows a silky texture upon young fruits, carried by citrus and red fruit (cherry) notes.
