Champagne Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008
Availability: In stock
The legendary Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame is one of the most prestigious vintage Champagnes produced in AOC Champagne.
A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the first variety was sourced from Grand Cru vineyards located in Montagne de Reims. As for the Chardonnay grapes, they come from the very best Crus in Côte des Blancs.
Meticulously vinified and exquisitely vinified, Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 was aged for over 6 years on lees before hitting the market.
The Champagne Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Brut is medium yellow with some bright amber tinges.
Astoundingly precise and immensely refined, this blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay suggests aromas of ripe apricots, nougat, butter and citrus, with dim mineral remembrances and notes vanilla, ripe almonds and white flowers.
Lifted, fresh and phenomenally smooth, this Champagne from Vueve Clicquot Ponsardin has a dreamy texture and some microscopic, palate-caressing bubbles. Effortless and lively, with a long, velvety finish.
