Product Overview

The 2008 Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Brut Champagne displays notes of dried fruits (almonds, figs, apricots), ripe white fruits (pears), and finally, subtle toasted notes of hazelnut and praline. On the palate, the attack is strong and sharp but bestows a silky texture of young fruits, carried by citrus and cherry notes. The Pinot Noir, a signature of the Veuve Clicquot's style, shines extraordinarily by its freshness, minerality, and power. La Grande Dame 2008 is a perfect combination of complexity, structure, and strength.

95 Points - Wine Spectator
"An elegant Champagne, powered by a sculpted frame of acidity and minerality, this wears the refined, lacy mousse and well-meshed flavors of black currant, lemon curd, toast and marzipan like finely tailored clothing. Fresh and lasting, with hints of spice and smoke on the finish. Disgorged August 2016. Drink now through 2033." -AN, 11/30/18

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This rich Champagne is dominated, as usual, by Pinot Noir. Its ripe fruit is approaching maturity, the hints of toast and croissant becoming more apparent. It is balanced, rich but textured and with an opulent, ripe aftertaste. Drink now." -RV, 12/1/18
