  • Part of the LVMH group, Veuve Clicquot is one of the largest and oldest (founded 1772) champagne house
  • Most customers can instantly recognize its yellowish orange label, which became its registered trademark in 1877
  • Celebrating its bicentenary, it launched its top-end, prestigious vintage cuvee - La Grande Dame
  • A superb effort from 14 years ago - perfect to drink now, can also cellar much longer if one has the patience...

Wine Spectator: 92
"There's plenty of finesse in this sleek Champagne, along with an airy texture and loads of grip. Graphite, lemon, toast and mineral aromas and flavors prevail, and this takes on a chalky edge on the lingering aftertaste." (Dec 2008)

 

Stephen Tanzer: 92
"Pale yellow with a steady bead. Orange, lemon, apple, smoky minerals and yeast on the nose. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors coat the palate and are energized by dusty minerals and a fresh jasmine quality. An energetic version of this bottling, with good finishing grip and lingering floral qualities. This gained weight with air: I'd hold off on popping the cork for at least another three years." (Dec 2008)

 

Wine Advocate: 90
"The house’s 1998 La Grande Dame reveals notable clarity and precision. This focused, poised wine emerges from the glass with well-articulated flowers, pears, smoke, crisp apples and minerals in a medium-bodied style. The wine appears to have enough freshness and sheer depth to support another decade or so of aging. La Grand Dame represents a significant step up from the estate’s other wines. In 1998 La Grande Dame is 64% Pinot Noir (Ay, Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy) and 36% Chardonnay (Avize, Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger)." (Dec 2008)
