Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Brut 1990

Champagne, FranceDespite a mix of nearly 70 per cent Pinot Noir and only 30 per cent Chardonnay (there is never any Pinot Meunier in La Grande Dame) it is the chardonnay that dominates for the moment. A perfectly ripe vintage has spawned a rich, powerful, elegant wine that is long on finesse. The best La Grande Dame yet.Tasted: 01 September 1991Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 109.95 Producer: Veuve Clicquot PonsardinDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
