Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rose
Description & Technical Information
-
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’. Veuve Clicquot's prestige cuvée, it is an exclusive blend of eight of their historical Grand Crus and is a mineral and fresh expression of the Veuve Clicquot style. La Grande Dame Rosé 2006 was obtained with the addition of 15% red wine made entirely from Pinot Noir grapes from the village of Bouzy. The vast majority of grapes originate from Clos Colin, one of Veuve Clicquot's best lots situated in the heart of the Grand Cru village.

Weather: The 2006 vintage was a year of mixed weather. It began with a rainy spell and late spring, but with little or no frost in the vineyards. Early summer was positive, with the months of June and July creating perfect conditions for flowering. Although there were some storms in late-July, the overall health of the vines was great since the weather remained hot through to the harvest with spells of rain in August promoting even healthier grapes.

Tasting Note: On the nose subtle fragrances of strawberries and wild red fruits shine through. The palate is stunning: an abundance of fresh strawberries and raspberries combine with hints of toasted notes of ginger and honey. The finish is long and lingering with a divine combination of fruits and toasted qualities.. very smooth and full-bodied. A marvellous champagne from a truly unique vintage.
