2008 Veuve Clicquot 'La Grande Dame' Champagne
On the eye, La Grande Dame 2008 light gold color has a surprising glint. The initial nose reveals a strong attack, both aerial and delicate. Upon being released it presents notes of dried fruits (almonds, figs, apricots), ripe white fruits (pears), and finally, subtle toasted notes of hazelnut and praline. Thus, those luscious pastry notes are well balanced with the blend’s freshness and clarity.
On the palate, the attack is strong and sharp. La Grande Dame 2008 bestows a silky texture upon young fruits, carried by citrus and red fruits (cherry) notes. The Pinot Noir, signature of the Veuve Clicquot’s style, shines extraordinarily by its freshness, minerality and power. La Grande Dame 2008 is a perfect combination of complexity, structure and strength.
The Reveal gift box with a ribbon which, when untied, reveals its precious contents: a carousel mechanism of the new champagne La Grande Dame 2008. The lid of the box is embroidered with a golden thread and bears the now La Grande Dame label. The lining is in golden satin Chinese paper which presents an ideal backdrop for the bottle. The captivating design makes the box suitable for displaying on a shelf. The box is made of one material and so it can be easily and environmentally recycled.
Wine Spectator - "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."
