Veuve Clicquot 2008 "La Grande Dame Rosé" Brut, Champagne, France
Veuve Clicquot 2008 "La Grande Dame Rosé" Brut, Champagne
The spring of 2008 was cool and rainy and thanks to an also cool but dry summer, the grapes ripened in excellent conditions. La Grande Dame 2008 respects the House’s quest for excellence with the exceptional quality and remarkable acidity of the grapes of that year, which recalled other extraordinary vintage at Veuve Clicquot such as 1995, 1985 and 1979.
La Grande Dame 2008 is an exclusive blend of 6 of the House’s 8 Grands Crus:
92% Pinot Noir (Aÿ , Ambonnay , Bouzy , Verzy , Verzenay )
8% Chardonnay (Le Mesnil sur Oger)
La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 features 14% Pinot Noir red wine from the Clos Colin in Bouzy, one of the most historical plots in the Veuve Clicquot vineyards.
