The Winery

Veuve Clicquot

Veuve Clicquot

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.

- Vue: la Grande Dame 2008 revêt une robe d'or pale aux reflets jade. Le vin est cristallin, sa bulle d'une incroyable finesse.
- Nez: au premier nez, la noblesse du Chardonnay transparait sur un registre floral et minéral. l'agitation, des notes de fruits confits, puis des notes rares, malt tourbé, tabac, se révèlent peu à peu.
- Bouche: franche et pure, la bouche, qui confirme cette palette aromatique complexe, est parfaitement équilibrée par un gras soyeux.La Grande Dame 2004 se termine longuement sur une finale vive et structurée. L'équilibre est pur et parfait. Un exemple de finesse, un style unique où domine le pinot noir. Un assemblage des huit crus historiques confère une complexité et une finesse absolues.

- 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.

This wine was good for the dinner. The Veuve Clicquot la Grande Dame is just so good.
It had a deep colour at first sight. Very yeasty and biscuity on the nose. Warm and very tasty.
