The cuvée La Grande Dame of the house Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin was created as a tribute to Madame Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin and it represents the quintessence of the champagnes produced by the famous house in Reims. It is 37% Chardonnay and 63% Pinot Noir. La Grande Dame 2004 has a bright and yellow gold robe, embellished by a fine lace of bubbles. On the nose, it is of a remarkable intensity on fruity aromas of a great richness (white peach, apricot, bergamot) accompanied by quaffable notes of frangipani, brioche, nougat and vanilla. On the palate, the mouthfeel is crunchy and silky. This Grande Dame 2004, which has a mineral and precise structure, shows a beautiful persistance and freshness on the finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
As with the corresponding (and varietally identical) rose, Clicquot's 2004 Brut La Grande Dame is vivacious and buoyant, with lemon and grapefruit set in entertaining counterpoint to almond paste and vanilla-tinged, tart-edged baked apple. Saline oyster liquor adds another, savory dimension in a lingering finish, while hints of chamomile and jasmine serve for aromatic allure. This delightful bottling might well achieve genuine profundity over the next two or three years.
