Good news for all you wine enthusiasts out there – in celebration of the bicentennial anniversary of the House of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin based in Reims, France, vintage wine La Grande Dame 2006 will be released to all to mark this momentous occasion.
La Grande Dame is crafted exclusively from the house’s noblest Grand Cru plots, which are handpicked for excellence by none other than Madame Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin herself. La Grande Dame is released only when the year’s harvest is deemed to be up to Madame Clicquot’s highest standards, so you can expect nothing less than the very best from this exquisite vintage wine.
Only the highest quality grapes are sourced in the making of La Grande Dame and La Grande Dame Rose, each crafted according to their own proportions. The 2006 is made up of 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay. These wines are left to develop in the house’s chalk cellars in Reims for a minimum of eight years.
These exceptional wines are a treat for the mouth and a feast for the eyes. Presented in a fine black box covered in sustainably developed saddle-stitched paper, the smoked glass bottles are stamped with the anchor and comet emblems of the House. Each bears a leaden seal around its stopper, a birth certificate guaranteeing its noble lineage.
The La Grande Dame 2006 and La Grande Dame 2006 Rosé will be released in the later half of this year.
