    Winemaker's Notes:

    Veuve Clicquot's Prestige Cuvée, La Grande Dame, is a very great wine which pays homage to a very "grande dame de la Champagne," Madame Clicquot. The incomparable finesse of this cuvée results from a blend of eight of the House's traditional Grands Crus.

    This wine has a fine, complex fragrance, blending sweetness and nobility. It is smooth and silky in the mouth, with considerable substance and structure. A remarkable balance, with a fresh, harmonious finish, and a unique aromatic aftertaste.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Same fantastic velvety super harmonious style year out and year in. The 2004 is polished, gorgeous and smiling in an ultra-sophistocated way. Extremely intense Chardonnay from Oger is playing most loud for the moment in the symphony.

    A fine and lacy mousse is draped over a firm frame of well-integrated acidity, belying the complexity of this elegant Champagne. A delicately woven tapestry of black currant, piecrust, chalk, spring blossom and lemon zest flavors ends with a lasting note of smoke-tinged minerality. Drink now through 2029.

    This is a rich and creamy Champagne with a lively mousse, giving it a forward fruit character. Slowly the depth and concentration of the wine come through, with a white fruit flavor and hints of grapefruit and toasty yeast, which all promising good aging.

    A cool, youthfully rich 2004, this starts from an austere place and grows increasingly expressive as it opens in the glass. Complex depths of flavor develop out of a white fruit note, layering chalk and lime citrus notes with cedar and pale smoke. Approachable now with enough air, this will develop beautifully over the next ten years.

    I can't express in words just how much I love this Champagne. Delightfully light yet full of luscious flavors. This beautiful wine would make the perfect gift or bottle to pop for any celebration.

    Best champagne I've ever tried - my wife and I toured the cellars in Reims, France on our honeymoon and could not get enough of this cellar
