    Cuvée presentation

    Developed only in very great vintages, La Grande Dame combines the strength and richness of Pinot Noir with elegance and richness of Chardonnay. The colour is intense gold, tinged with green tints. The bubbles are very thin and delicate. The scents of extreme delicacy, develop fruity and floral aromas (white flowers, citrus, white fruit). The palate is dominated by rich and pleasing roundness. Perfectly balanced, the final taste reveals all the nobility of this exceptional cuvée

    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.
