Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame by Charlotte Olympia Champagne 2006
Veuve Clicquot has partnered with designer Charlotte Olympia – known for her quirky shoes and accessories – for this limited-edition bottle. A perfect tribute to La Grande Dame, Madame Clicquot. The grape harvest in 2006 defied expectations. Winemakers overcame unfavourable weather conditions to create a vintage with minerality and full-bodied expression in true Veuve Clicquot style. Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame by Charlotte Olympia Champagne 2006 is not to be missed.
An almost equal blend of pinot noir (53%) and chardonnay (47%), the 2006 vintage reflects the turbulent conditions of that year’s growing season. The pinot noir was sourced from the Montagne de Reims villages of Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzy and Verzenay, while the chardonnay came from the celebrated Côte des Blancs villages of Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
