La Grande Dame Rose subtly adapts the style of La Grand Dame from which it is made. All the grapes come from Clos Colin, one of Veuve Cliquot’s best plots located in the heart of the Grand Cru. The 1998 vintage of La Grande Dame, the quintessence of the Veuve Cliquot style, reaches a peak of refinement, without losing its legendary strength.
A luminous, deep gold/red and a persistent, fine mousse. The rich, intense nose displays notes of dried fruits (black figs, dates) and mild spices (vanilla) in harmony with a softer, almost creamy base. On the palate the texture is deep, dense and tightly woven. The structure of the pinot noir is perfectly rounded. Gracious notes of black cherries and raspberries dominate the finish. The exceptional flavor and taste of this truly great Champagne make it a magnificent accompaniment to fine cuisine, or it can be enjoyed as an apéritif for its own superb merits.
