La Grande Dame 2015

La Grande Dame pays tribute to Madame Clicquot. She used to say 'Our black grapes give the finest white wines'. The glory of Pinot Noir.

La Grande Dame 2015, an exceptional sunny vintage for a wine full of tension and elegance.

La Grande Dame 2015 is the 24th vintage since 1972, when Veuve Clicquot launched its first prestige cuvée to celebrate the House's bicentenary. For the new vintage, Veuve Clicquot continues to claim optimism through colours with an unrecedented collaboration with Italian designer, Paola Paronetto.

A few notes of fresh sliced almond and frangipane complete the bouquet. In the mouth, there are more complex aromas: dried apricot, hazelnuts, honey and sugar candy. Silky textures give the wine its personality, elegance and character, while the ageing has imparted depth and power to the wine. exceptional pinot-led vintage from an outstanding year.
