    Cuvée presentation

    Emblematic cuvée of the Veuve Cliquot house, it brings together the best of five Pinot Noir terroirs (Verzy, Verzenay, Bouzy, Ambonnay and Ay) and three for Chardonnay (Mesnil sur Oge, Oger and Avize), with combinations of these depending on the year. The Grande Dame cuvée spends at least 7 years in the cellar, and during this time gains much in complexity. This maturity can then be appreciated on the palate.

    Information about domain Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

    Born in 1777, Nicole Barbe Ponsardin married François Clicquot in 1798. Widowed at the age of 27, she resumed the business of her deceased husband. While Europe is ablaze, she managed to ship this champagne worldwide. Bold and imaginative, she presents her champagne all over Europe. Anxious to perfection, she visits the cellars at night to ensure the successful development of her vintages. She invented the riddling, bought plots in the best vineyards and actively fought against counterfeits. Madame Veuve Clicquot died in 1866 at the age of 89. Created in tribute to Madame Clicquot, La Grande Dame is marked by the pursuit of excellence: from the choice of grapes for this very special wine to the complexity of the blend composed of eight Grand Cru and the minimum ageing of six years to reach maturity, everything is done to create a great wine of Champagne.
