La Grande Dame Rose is called the "quintessence of Veuve Clicquot" by cellarmaster Jacques Péters, it follows the distinguished legacy of La Grande Dame and enriches the tradition of Veuve Clicquot's Rosé Champagnes, a House specialty since 1777. La Grande Dame Rosé is produced only from the eight grand cru vineyards Madame Clicquot purchased in her lifetime, with still Pinot Noir from Bouzy, a grand cru vineyard especially favored by Madame Clicquot.
La Grande Dame Rosé 1995 is a luminous deep gold/red with 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.

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...Read More About Champagne
