Appearance

The Champagne Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Brut is medium yellow with some bright amber tinges.

Nose

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.

Palate

Lifted, fresh and phenomenally smooth, this Champagne from Vueve Clicquot Ponsardin has a lush, dreamy texture, a laser-like focus and some microscopic, palate-caressing bubbles. Effortless and lively, with a long, velvety finish. 

Our personal opinion

A world-class sparkling wine, Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2012 is simply majestic.
