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.

4 /5

- Limited stock, changing to 2006 vintage soon.
- An extremely cold winter, with snow on the Montagne de Reims, gave way to an unexpected warm spell with moderate rain showers. A little frost was noted in the most vulnerable areas.
- Spring was early and wet, while May was particularly hot and dry. Rain at the end of June did not affect flowering, which took place under
- excellent, nearly heat wave, conditions. Rain and hot weather alternated at the beginning of summer, encouraging the vines to grow rapidly.
- August was dry and sunny, perfect for ripening the grapes. After a grey and cloudy two weeks at the beginning of September, the weather turned, providing the ideal dry climate to harvest the grapes, which were in superb condition.
- The basic blend is made up of 64% Pinot Noir grapes from the Grands Crus at Ay, in the Vallee de la Marne, and at Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy in the Montagne de Reims.
- The blend also includes 36% Chardonnay grapes from three Grands Crus: Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Cote des Blancs.
- La Grande Dame 1998 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 (citrusfruits, 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.
- La Grande Dame 1998, with its lacelike construction, has a long, lively, and structured finish. This wine has unbelievable ageing potential. The 1998 vintage of La Grande Dame, the quintessence of the Veuve Clicquot style, reaches a peak of refinement, without losing its legendary strength produced by a blend including nearly two-thirds of Pinot Noir.

4/5

It had a very deep colour. A Champagne with yeasty aromas. The best aftertaste of Champagne.
This Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rosé does not need food to accompany.
The first time I drank it with people from Veuve Clicquot.

I noticed a dull colour. Yeasty smell. A background of toast in the mouth .
I tried it before the meal.
The first person who told me about this wine, was my brother.
The Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rose was very expensive.
We got the best out of this wine aerating it, "letting it breathe".

Needs to be drunk with the right food. I was lucky enough to try it with a client.
It has a very nice colour. The final reminded me of bakery flavours. Light on the palate.
