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. The 2004 vintage is the first La Grande Dame since 1998, a long time in the modern era of champagne.

Weather: The 2004 vintage saw an initial winter of mild temperatures with intermittent storms and hail. The spring and summer months were hot and sunny and the sugar levels late in September produced good quality fruits, especially for the Pinot Noir grapes. A huge harvest in general for the region. Overall many experts believe that 2004 is one of the greatest vintages of the last two decades.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Pinot Noir: Ambonnay, Aÿ, Bouzy, Verzenay, Verzy | Chardonnay: Avize, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger
Grape Varieties: 61% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay
Ageing: 8 years on the lees
Dosage: 8 g/l
Drink: Now to 2024

Tasting Note: A pale gold colour with jade glints, this wine is crystal clear with unbelievably fine bubbles. Disarmingly youthful, it launches with lemon zest, grapefruit and red apple in the mouth. Barely beginning its life at a decade of age, this has magnificent ageing ahead of it. Having tasted some vintages recently from the 1990s, they demonstrate that this champagne has the ability to age very gracefully for many years to come.
