Winemaker Notes: La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 offers a beautiful pink gold with light copper hues. It is full-bodied and smooth, then becomes refined with fresh aromas. The Pinot Noir’s generosity resonates beautifully after a slow and long aging in the Veuve Clicquot cellars. The wine shows powerful notes of red fruits (raspberry and strawberry), combined with citrus notes (blood orange, grapefruit), and finally holds a perfect balance between subtle and spicy with notes of red berries, rooibos tea and fine leather.

The attack is delicate and smooth. In full harmony with the nose, fruit outshines the palate and presents intensity in red and black fruits (cherry, strawberry, blackberry and blackcurrant). The strength and youth are carved by long aging notes, dried flowers and smoky notes, presenting an incredible complexity which is worthy of the best Pinot Noir of Champagne.

The Cellar Master’s blend for La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 features 92% Pinot Noir from Veuve Clicquot’s historical Grands Crus in Aÿ, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy and Verzenay. The 8% Chardonnay is from the House’s Grand Cru in Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger.

When Madame Clicquot took the reins of the House in 1805, she became one of the first businesswomen of modern times. Called la Grande Dame of Champagne by her peers, she led a life defined by her audacious, courageous choices such as shipping her excellent champagne around the world. Madame Clicquot’s innovative spirit led to many “firsts” in champagne: the first-known vintage champagne (1810), the riddling table (1816), and the first-known blended rosé champagne (1818).
