An elegant Champagne, powered by a sculpted frame of acidity and minerality, this wears the refined, lacy mousse and well-meshed flavors of black currant, lemon curd, toast and marzipan like finely tailored clothing. Fresh and lasting, with hints of spice and smoke on the finish. Disgorged August 2016. Drink now through 2033. 95 Points, Wine Spectator, November 2018.
La Grande Dame is an homage to Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin, a woman who took over her late husband’s business in 1805, turning his winery into one of the most celebrated champagne houses to ever exist. Credited as the inventor of the riddling technique and the only woman to hold such a significant role in the industry, she was known as the Grande Dame of Champagne. And in 1972—the 200th anniversary of the brand—the prestige cuvée in honor of Madame Clicquot debuted with a 1962 vintage.
