Product Detail

La Grande Dame, is a showcase of the House’s excellence. It perfectly expresses its love for Pinot Noir, which since the 2008 vintage, has represented over 90% of the blend. The responsibility that lies on the shoulders of the Cellar Master is to glorify this grape and strike the right balance so that it expresses itself through its refined, elegant, light, delicate, yet powerful character, with firmness, extreme subtlety and a certain restraint. It is a tribute to Madame Clicquot and to the creative and elegant souls who have followed in her footsteps. A wine to reflect the image of the Grande Dame herself.

Appearance: Light Gold colour with a surprising glint

Aroma: Initial notes of white flowers on the nose, such as jasmine, honeysuckle and vine flowers can be felt and then opens with fruitier nuances of apple, pear and peach. A few notes of fresh almond and frangipane complete the bouquet.

Taste: In the mouth, the cuvee reveals more complex aromas; dried apricot, hazelnuts, honey and sugar candy. Silky textures give the wine it's personality, elegance and character. The aging has imparted particular depth and power to the wine.


Vegetables make an incredible pairing with La Grande Dame. A field of multiple chords with a rich and varied palette of aromas that demands the greatest creativity and technicality from chefs, to invent recipes over the seasons. Vegetables, herbs, fruits picked in the morning, cooked in the afternoon. Extremely fresh with a very strong expressive power, intensity and complexity of aromas - perfect to match a complex wine like La Grande Dame.
