|Veuve Clicquot - La Grande Dame 2004 75cl Bottle|
The Cuvee - Uncompromising quality
The Star of La champagne is composed by only the best crus: 64% Pinot Noir grapes from the Grands Crus at Ay, in the Grande Vallèe de la Marne, and at Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy in the Montagne de Reims
36% Chardonnay grapes from three Grands Crus: Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Cote des Blancs
La Grande Dame has a pale gold colour with Jade glints
The wine is crystal clear, with unbelievably fine bubbles
On the first nose, typical Chardonnay characteristics come to the fore, with the arrival of floral and mineral aromas (acacia, ferns, chalk)
By agitating the wine, scents of candied fruit (citrus fruits, apricots, quince) and sweet almond emerge, to reappear later in the mouth
After rotating the wine for a few minutes more, rare notes such as peaty malt, tobacco and delicate herbs, are gradually unveiled
This aromatic, impressively complex bouquet is confirmed in the mouth
On the palate, the wine is clear-cut and pure, perfectly balanced with a delightful silky smoothness.
