Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rosé 2008
La Grande Dame Rosé is the Veuve Clicquot House's rarest wine from Pinot Noir grapes.
Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 will pair perfectly with gastronomy, especially with beef, ravioli with prawns, lamb andstuffed tomatoes.
On the eye, La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 offers a beautiful pink gold with light copper hues. Gentle bubbles explode with an extreme delicacy.
On the nose, it is full-bodied and smooth, then becomes refined with fresh aromas. The generosity of the Pinot Noir resonates beautifully after a slow and long aging in our 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 red berries, rooibos tea and fine leather notes.
On the palate, 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.
Each step of the wine production process is meticulously conducted to ensure that the vines are treated with the utmost care and that the production processes have as little impact as possible in terms of consumption, emissions and waste. As a major international player in the luxury sector and due to the exceptional nature of its legacy, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin’s responsibility is considerable. Fully aware of the importance of its role, the House has been implementing an active approach in all aspects of its business for over fifteen years, from the work in the vineyard to the distribution of its wines.
We are able to maintain our quality thanks to our longstanding supplier relationships. In fact, there are some families that have given grapes to Veuve Clicquot for more than six generations; we are very attached to the relationship of proximity and loyalty. This continual development of our supply could not be accomplished without the help of a service uniquely dedicated to our Partners. The "Supply and Vineyard Relations" service is composed of ten people on the ground that work towards this end.
In 1999 , Veuve Clicquot was the first Maison to set up a technical department dedicated to its grape suppliers. Naturally, this team now is working to implement a Champagne Sustainable Viticulture with our Partners. By leveraging our passion and expertise, our technicians crisscross Champagne to meet with other winemakers, always advancing towards an ever more respectful common viticulture for our land, air and water.
