    Winemaker's Notes:

    La Grande Dame is Veuve Clicquot's prestige cuvee, named after its legendary founder Madame Clicquot. Veuve Clicquot partners with Riva to introduce the ultimate jet-set accessories with the La Grande Dame by Riva Cruiser Collection. Excellent materials, elaborate details and smooth finishing echo the iconic Riva boats of the 1960s and evoke the opulent style of La Dolce Vita.

    This Limited Edition Gift Box is made of black lacquer and mahogany, with chrome and leather details and encases one Special Edition La Grande Dame 1998 bottle.

    La Grande Dame 1998 has a pale gold color with jade glints. The wine is crystal clear, with unbelievably fine bubbles. On the first nose, typical Chardonnay characteristics come to the fore, with the arrival of floral and mineral aromas (acacia, ferns, chalk). By agitating the wine, scents of candied fruit (citrus fruits, apricots, quince) and sweet almond emerge, to reappear later in the mouth. After rotating the wine for a few minutes more, rare notes such as peaty malt, tobacco and delicate herbs, are gradually unveiled. This aromatic, impressively complex bouquet is confirmed in the mouth. On the palate, the wine is clear-cut and pure, perfectly balanced with a delightful silky smoothness. La Grande Dame 1998, with its lace-like construction, has a long, lively, and structured finish.

    This wine has unbelievable aging potential. The 1998 vintage of La Grande Dame, the quintessence of the Veuve Clicquot style, reaches a peak of refinement, without losing its legendary strength produced by a blend including nearly two-thirds of Pinot Noir.
