Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame

INFORMATION OF INTEREST Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame

TASTING NOTE

Colour: La Grande Dame 1998 has a pale gold colour with jade glints. The wine is crystal clear, with unbelievably fine bubbles.

Aroma: On the first nose, typical Chardonnay characteristics come to the fore, with the arrival of floral and mineral aromas (acacia, ferns, chalk). By agitating the wine, scents of candied fruit (citrus fruits, apricots and quince) and sweet almond emerge, to reappear later in the mouth. After rotating the wine for a few minutes more, rare notes such as peaty malt, tobacco and delicate herbs, are gradually unveiled.

Taste: This aromatic, impressively complex bouquet is confirmed in the mouth. On the palate, the wine is clear-cut and pure, perfectly balanced with a delightful silky smoothness. La Grande Dame 1998, with its lace-like construction, has a long, lively, and structured finish. This wine has unbelievable ageing potential. The1998 vintage of La Grande Dame, the quintessence of the Veuve Clicquot style, reaches a peak of refinement, without losing its legendary strength produced by a blend including nearly two-thirds of Pinot Noir.

MATCHING

Due to the characteristics of this champagne, it can offer all his potential with dishes of new creative cuisine, like creamy rice with scallops and shrimp or filet of sole with almonds, or dessert with a hint of citrus, a lemon mouse served with custard.
