95 points, “The contrast of depth and brightness, of intensity and weightlessness, creates a sense of harmonic resonance in this wine… Once in a while, there is a young beauty who will age into a more profound older beauty: La Grande Dame is part of that rare breed.” – Wine & Spirits Magazine

La Grande Dame is Veuve Clicquot’s homage to Madame Clicquot. And as you would expect for a Champagne emerging from the LVMH stable, it’s ravishingly stylish. Boasting floral almond notes, alongside toast and apricot jam, quince jelly, red apple skins, rising bread dough, creamy white chocolate mousse, toffee, zesty lemon curd, honey, roasted hazelnuts and gingerbread, it’s a thing of timeless beauty. This large magnum bottle, in which it is maturing and developing elegantly, is the perfect showcase for such an impressive wine.

The history of this famous Champagne house dates back to 1772 when Philippe Clicquot founded a wine-making business under the name Clicquot. In 1810 this was renamed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin after the young widow Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin inherited the estate. Ever in pursuit of excellence and innovation, Madame Clicquot used her skills to develop an exceptional wine-growing territory and went on to establish what is today one of the most iconic names in Champagne. Veuve Clicquot’s signature style is a fine and elegant balance between freshness and complexity.
