Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rose 2004 in Carousel Box
La Grande Dame Rose 2004 is Veuve Clicquot's Prestige Cuvee. It is dedicated to the memory of Madame Clicquot, a pioneer in the early days of Champagne production (La Grande Dame means 'The Great Lady'). This particular bottle comes in a beautiful carousel gift box where the top of the box rotates to reveal the bottle inside. This is a limited edition item and should not be missed.
On the eye - The color is luminous, coppery pink and sparkling with amber highlights. The plentiful fine, light bubbles describe graceful, indolent arabesques.
On the nose - The first nose reveals a solid mineral structure with noble fruits such as white peach, red currant, raspberry and blueberry, as well as a remarkable intensity. The bouquet becomes more luxurious and voluptuous with notes of brioche, nougat, cinnamon, and cherry.
On the palate - The extraordinary aromatic complexity of this wine becomes even more intense when tasted. In the mouth, the wine is substantial and full bodied with a crisp and silky texture. The minerality of the chalk resonates brilliantly with the meaty structure and amplifies the length of the finish. The red wine from Bouzy adds a majestic foundation and the potential for aging for the next generation. The finish is fresh and generous.
