CELLAR SELECTION
#3 TOP 100 CELLAR SELECTIONS 2020

With a slight preponderance of Pinot Noir in the blend, this wine is rich and impressive. It is still young, with a crisp edge that makes the fruit shine. Apple and citrus flavors are integrated into a mineral vein. Drink from 2022.

Wine Tasting Notes
On the eye, La Grande Dame light gold color has a surprising glint. The initial nose reveals a strong attack, both aerial and delicate. Upon being released it presents notes of dried fruits (almonds, figs, apricots), ripe white fruits (pears), and finally, subtle toasted notes of hazelnut and praline. Thus, those luscious pastry notes are well balanced with the blend's freshness and clarity. On the palate, the attack is strong and sharp. La Grande Dame bestows a silky texture upon young fruits, carried by citrus and red fruits (cherry) notes. The Pinot Noir, signature of the Veuve Clicquot's style, shines extraordinarily by its freshness, minerality and power. La Grande Dame is a perfect combination of complexity, structure and strength.
