Description

The colour is luminous, sparkling gold with amber highlights. There is plenty of effervescence. The fine, light bead swirls up slowly and gracefully. The first nose reveals a definite mineral base, with noble fruit (white peaches, bergamot) and remarkable intensity. On agitating, the bouquet becomes gourmand and voluptuous with hints of brioche, nougat, apricot, vanilla, frangipane and jasmine. On the plate, there is plenty of body and substance. The texture is crusp and silky. The chalky mineral note resonates magificently with this full-bodied structure and intensifies the lengthy persistence. The Verzenay/Avize duet (the two domiant crus in this blend of 8 Grand Crus) takes on its full dimension. The finish is fresh and generous, indicating a light dosage that does nothing to disturb the wine’s natural balance. Veuve Clicquot’s Prestige Cuvée, La Grande Dame, is a very great wine which pays homage to a very “grande dame de la Champagne,” Madame Clicquot. The incomparable finesse of this cuvée results from a blend of eight of the House’s traditional Grands Crus.
