Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 Champagne, 75 cl
Regular price £139.99
Madame Clicquot was an audacious woman. When her husband died in 1805, she took over the reins of the business at 27 years old, with one tireless vision – “Only one quality, the finest”. La Grande Dame, is a showcase of the House’s excellence. It perfectly expresses its love for Pinot Noir, which since the 2008 vintage, has represented over 90% of the blend. It is a tribute to Madame Clicquot and to the creative and elegant souls who have followed in her footsteps. A wine to reﬂect the image of La Grande Dame herself. Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 is great for gastronomy, pairing extremely well with oysters, fish tartare or even chicken with sesame. Read more.

A blend of Pinot noir (92%) and chardonnay (8%) from six grand cru vineyards – Aÿ, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy, Verzenay and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger – make up this vintage. A cool and rainy spring and a cool, dry summer created grapes with a remarkable acidity that recalled other extraordinary vintages from the maison. Aged for 10 years, it has a complexity that will develop further in time.
On the nose: Notes of dried fruits (almonds, figs, apricots), ripe white fruits as pears, and finally, subtle toasted notes of hazelnut and praline. On the palate: strong and sharp, with a silky texture upon young fruits, carried by citrus and red fruits notes. The signature Pinot Noir shines extraordinarily by its freshness, minerality and power. La Grande Dame 2008 is a perfect combination of complexity, structure and strength.

We've all been there. You receive a bottle of sparkling wine as a gift and it's fair to say you're less than impressed. If that's you, you might be looking for a quick and easy cocktail to transform your fizz into a sweet and zesty delight. The bonus is, it's a super simple recipe with just 4 ingredients, so it's the perfect quick win to impress guests. Gin AND fizz?! In one cocktail?! Hell yes to that. The classic French 75 brings two of our favourite bevs together in one drink, and you can swap champagne for any sparkling wine. The French 75 is a classic, a drink that dates back to World War I. How's this for a fun fact? The cocktail is named after a 75 millimeter wartime field gun - but hey, we know you're not here for a history lesson. Keep reading for how to make the iconic cocktail.
