About Veuve Clicquot 2008 Grand Dame Champagne with Carousel Gift Box
Created in 1962 and launched in 1972 to celebrate the bicentenary of the House, La Grande Dame is a wine that is both a tribute to Madame Clicquot and the reflection of the Veuve Clicquot terroir. When it comes to describing the style of La Grande Dame, the following four words would summarize it well: freshness, silkiness, elegance and minerality. Pursuing this quest for perfection, Dominique Dermarville, Veuve Clicquot’s inspired Cellar Master reveals his very first La Grande Dame creation via this new vintage: La Grande Dame 2008. La Grande Dame 2008 is an exclusive blend of 6 of the House’s 8 historical Grands Crus. The cuvée is made of 92% Pinot Noir (Aÿ, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy, Verzenay) and 8% Chardonnay (Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger).
The 2008 vintage in Champagne has been widely lauded and this wine received a 95 point score for Wine Spectator who said "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."
This exceptional bottle comes in the carousel gift box that rotates the bottle into view with a pull of the ribbon. A memorable Gift!
