Champagne + Sparkling
Veuve Clicquot partnered with Swedish artist Stina Persson, to create a limited edition offer for their prestige cuvée La Grande Dame. La Grande Dame 2006 is an exclusive blend of our eight classic Grands Crus: Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzy and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir (53%); Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay (47%).
Light gold color. Complex nose, revealing turn of stone fruit fragrances, dried fruits, pastry discreet touch, gingerbread, mocha ... The mouth marries vinosity precision and freshness. Nice length. Opulent vintage, a great Grande Dame.
"The prestigious 2006 La Grande Dame is made from 47% Chardonnay and 53% Pinot Noir, and assembles the fruit of eight grand cru villages. Very intense and complex on the nose, this is a full-bodied, round, rich and mouth-filling, but also refined prestige cuvée; it reveals a fascinating purity, precision and freshness. The finish is long and complex, and shows a spicy minerality. There are coffee beans, bread and toast aromas in the aftertaste. This comes highly recommended."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made using 50 to 60 different crus, the cuvee is based on Brut Yellow Label's traditional blend: 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier, and 28 to 33% Chardonnay.
Its clear, brilliant, gold color lights up in the delicate tumult of fine bubbles produced by its persistent and remarkable effervescence. The nose is fresh, refined and elegant. Fragrances of citrus fruit and stone fruits (peach, apricot) appear first, which are then enriched by delicate, warm notes of sweet pastries, (almonds, Mirabelle plum tart): a subtle alliance of freshness and fullness. On the palate, the frank lively and pure attack moves into a powerful, structured palate, delicately chiseled from the minerality of Champagnes' chalky terroir. The generosity of the Pinot Noir's fruitiness resonates harmoniously with the freshness of the light candied citrus fruit aromas (lemon) which are embellished in the finish with delicate hints of toasted notes and dried fruit (apricots). Vintage 2008 is the perfect combination of power, freshness and finesse, and ends with an incredibly long finish.
"Very elegant, this is chiseled by racy acidity that's swathed in the refined, creamy mousse and flavors of crème de cassis, preserved lemon, biscuit and dried apricot. Long and lacy on the smoke-tinged, minerally finish."
95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Wow - really opulent nose with exotic spice and ginger notes supporting a core of decadently creamy, kaya jam, butterscotch, praline and marzipan aromas. The palate is very rich, silky, full and viscous yet beautifully balanced by crisp acidity and seamless dosage. Touch of creamy / spicy oak. Very long, multilayered finish. Tasted April 2009." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Jul 2009)
The diversity of terroirs offer to the winemaker an amazing assembly palette. This is when the grape varieties, climates and soils come into consonance in our cellars, to give a special wine called "Racines de Trois". This wine is the essence of three regions Aube, Cotes de Blancs, and Montagne de Reims.
This sparkling wine from grapes Sorbara, is a rosé wine with intense, fine and persistent perlage, brilliant and crystalline.
In the glass, the foam is lively and evanescent.
At the nose it appears quite complex, with fruity hints, with an acidity that adds to the basic grape tones the taste-aromatic tones of red berry fruit, bilberries, raspberries; unique floral with hints of pink and purple, typical and winy. One can feel the grapes freshly pressed in the cellar.
Dry lively taste, sapid, which gives a lasting sensation of freshness and balance; with great persistence and harmony.
A modern wine, a wine-fruit of excellent consistency and admirable persuasiveness, its ease of drinking enveloping, with clear oenologic integrity.
It is excellent as an aperitif, it is an excellent pairing to all the starters, first courses, meats and medium-aged cheeses.
