VEUVE CLICQUOT LA GRANDE DAME VINTAGE 2008 750ML

Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame, the prestige cuvee of Veuve Clicquot was created in tribute to Madame Clicquot. The finest expression of the House style it is a wine of incomparable finesse. The initial nose reveals a saline, mineral background, followed by floral notes such as acacia and peony, along with notes of fresh fruit including bush peach and pear, finished with toasted notes of hazelnut and roasted almonds. When swirled the bouquet becomes rich and voluptuous, with notes of brioche, nougat, ginger, and preserved lemon. On the palate, the wine is plump and full of substance. The texture is crisp and silky. The minerality of the chalk resonates brightly with the fleshy structure and contributes to the length of finish. The endnote is fresh and generous, hinting at a discreet dosage followed by a long period of post-disgorgement aging, so as not to disturb the wine’s natural equilibrium.
