Veuve Clicquot la Grande Dame Brut Estuche 2012. La Grande Dame was created in 1972 as a tribute to Madame Clicquot for her quest for quality, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. It is the ultimate expression of the Veuve Clicquot style; it enhances freshness and minerality, thanks to the wonderful terroir of the grapes.

Tasting notes of Veuve Clicquot la Grande Dame
On the nose, initial notes of white flowers, such as jasmine, honeysuckle and vine blossom, followed by fruity nuances of apple, pear and peach. Notes of fresh almond and frangipane complete the blend.
On the palate, the cuvée reveals more complex aromas: dried apricot, hazelnut, honey and caramel. The silky textures give the wine its personality, elegance and character. Ageing has imparted a particular depth and strength to the wine.
