It is incredibly pure and fresh, with a fruity, refined and complex character that earns depth with every secons: first it is more discrete, then fruitier and finally its beautiful minerality comes out. It is a wine that can be kept for several years and can be drank on great occasions, with new signature cuisine dishes or, if you prefere, simpler, like a halibut with almond sauce. Pure beauty turned into champagne.

How to serve
The Champagne House Veuve Clicquot was founded in 1772 and taken over in 1805 by the then-widow Barbe-Nicole Clicquot. Better known as Veuve Clicquot (Widow Clicquot), not only was the 27-year-old the first woman to run a Champagne house, she is also credited with creating the first known blended rosé champagne by blending still red and white champagne wines. This process is still used today by the majority of champagne producers. She’s also said to have invented the riddling process to clarify Champagne. Madame Clicquot became known to her peers as “La Grande Dame” of Champagne.More about the Winery
Reviews of Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2004
- 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.
It had a deep colour at first sight. Very yeasty and biscuity on the nose. Warm and very tasty.
