The Story

Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame is name in honour of the famed and undoubted Champagne pioneer, widow Clicquot. Widowed at the tender age of 28, Madame Clicquot continued her late husband's work and is the sole reason why her Champagne house is held in the high esteem that it is today. The 1998 La Grande Dame is a wine of pure beauty and power.

A majority blend of Pinot Noir, the vintage conditions are clearly visible in the glass with flavours of peach, apricot and touch of brioche and nuttiness. A true classic for the ages.

Written Notes

Den första och i dag mycket sällsynta årgången av Clicquots prestigechampagne var 1962. Den gjordes ursprungligen som en strikt limiterad engångsföreteelse. Den första kommersiella årgången lät vänta på sig till 1969. Inköpt direkt från huset vid lanseringen, med specialetikett som visar lanseringsdatum och degorgering. En äldre engelsk herre har haft den i sitt förvar sedan releasen och nu hade en vän till mig lyckats köpa flaskan till en hyfsat anständig kostnad. Hon reste till London under våren och hämtade upp flaskan; den hade närmast perfekt i fyllnad, inget läckage från korken kunde noteras, innehållet är klart och lätt att se igenom, endast lite lite sediment i botten, från autolysen. Flaskan har förvarats under optimala kyl- och lagringsförhållanden under sin livstid. Knappt synbar mousse (kolsyraviskning…) i den bärnstensfärgade drycken. Doften är utvecklad som en 53:a med toner av mintchoklad, kåda, sirap och knäck. Doften påminde om ett gammalt båthus när sommarsolen ligger på mot väggarna. Träaromen finns även i smaken uppbackad av en markerad söt chokladton. Pigg mousse och en något lättare framtoing än vanligt med en torr knorr på slutet. Fin ton av kaffe, aprikos, syltade kantareller och nougat spelar vackert med syrorna. Otroligt fet med oändliga smaklager!
