La Grande Dame 2015 tasting notes

A solaire vintage, La Grande Dame 2015 is faithful to Madame Clicquot’s vision. Pinot Noir finds its greatest expression in this blend (+90%), enhanced by a touch of Chardonnay (10%).

This cuvée is a feat of winemaking, with an immense aging potentiation of more than 15 years. Taught and elegant, it reveals its exceptional verticality thanks to the Pinot Noirs from the historic Crus of its terroir, which is among the most prestigious in Champagne: Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Ay.

It exhibits a beautiful, sparkling, golden robe. It offers freshness and minerality on the nose, with light floral notes of jasmine and acacia that evolve towards fruity notes of pear and clementine. In the mouth, its texture is subtle and silky.
