La Grande Dame 2006 is an exclusive blend of our eight classic Grands Crus: Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzy and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir; Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay. The Pinot Noir wines are fruity and full-bodied; the Chardonnay wines are of considerable distinction. Shiny with golden highlights. Shimmery, very thin bubbles. Aromas of mineral and floral, fresh fruits, toasted notes. Pair with appetizers smoked, cured products, shellfish (lobster, oysters), fish (Saint Pierre, Sea bass), starters, monkfish, scallop, dry cheese (Goat cheese), crystallised citrus fruits.

A waft of spring blossom draws you into this elegant Champagne, whose subtle notes of poached quince, toasted brioche and mandarin orange gracefully ride the satiny mousse, supported by a vibrant backbone of acidity. Disgorged February 2016. Drink now through 2029.

The prestigious 2006 La Grande Dame is made from 47% Chardonnay and 53% Pinot Noir, and assembles the fruit of eight grand cru villages. Very intense and complex on the nose, this is a full-bodied, round, rich and mouth-filling, but also refined prestige cuvée; it reveals a fascinating purity, precision and freshness. The finish is long and complex, and shows a spicy minerality. There are coffee beans, bread and toast aromas in the aftertaste. This comes highly recommended.

Veuve Clicquot's prestige cuvée is named after the widow Clicquot, the great lady who built up the house in the early 19th century. This latest incarnation is just showing signs of ripe toasty maturity. It is rich and soft with a high dosage, in the house style, with a full panoply of lime, red apple and apricot. Drink now and until 2022.
