Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2015 By Paola Paronetto In Gift Box (75cl)
As Madame Clicquot used to say 200 years ago, “Our black grapes give the finest white wines” an affirmation that still rings true. Beloved for its versatility, the Pinot Noir grape expresses itself differently according to its growing conditions and the year in which it is harvested. As a fine blend of Veuve Clicquot’s historical Grands Crus, La Grande Dame is the pinnacle of the Maison’s oenological prowess, with an immense ageing potential.
Artist Paola Paronetto’s own personal colour palette, is one of six colours chosen by the artist to express the optimism and emotion inherent in Veuve Clicquot’s 2015 vintage of La Grande Dame. Forming part of a chromatic symphony that echoes the harmony found within the bottle, the box is made sustainably to reflect the Maison’s commitment to eco initiatives. It is 100% reusable and recyclable and is made from a mix of hemp, cotton and FSC-certified pulp.
An exceptional pinot-led vintage from an outstanding year. The 2015 season in Champagne was very warm, with low rainfall and good sunshine, resulting in concentrated and structured wines. Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2015 is made from a thoughtful blend of 90% pinot noir and 10% chardonnay, grown in eight historic grand cru vineyards. The vineyards – Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Aÿ, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger – are some of the region's most prestigious.
This graceful Champagne offers hints of smoke and toasted brioche that tran- sition to patisserie apple and blackberry fruit, candied ginger and man- darin orange peel notes. Seamlessly knit and mouthwatering, with a minerally underpinning and a finely detailed, dotted bead. Lush and creamy on the vibrant, lasting finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2035. - Wine Spectator, 95 Points.
