La Grande Dame 1990’s signature blend draws traditionally on the eight Grands Crus, which are among the most prestigious in Champagne. It is dominated by Pinot Noir, with nearly 61%. These grapes come from Aÿ, in the Grande Vallée de la Marne, and Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy in the Montagne de Reims. The Chardonnay portion of 39% was harvested from the vines in the Grands Crus of Avize, Oger and Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Côte des Blancs.
On the nose, La Grande Dame 1990 offers highly expressive opening notes of candied fruit - apricot, mango, fig, quince and dates. These are then joined by warm, gourmet patisserie notes - marzipan, tarte tatin, almonds and pralines. In the mouth, the opening is like a sunburst, fresh and energetic and the texture is both rich and silky. The prolonged aging of this vintage gives the wine depth and power.
