Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Brut 1995

Champagne, FranceThe top of the line at Veuve Clicquot is La Grande Dame, an exquisite blend of 60-plus percent pinot noir and some 37 per cent chardonnay from eight Grand Cru vineyards. It is exceptionally well-balanced and elegant Champagne with a definite feminine floral side. The fruit is white peach and grapefruit with just a touch of vanilla. At Clicquot they recommend you serve this to kick off the evening sans appetizers. After you taste this smooth talking slow walking bubble you too will forget about food.Tasted: 14 December 2003Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 177.95 Specialty (375 mL) Producer: Veuve Clicquot PonsardinDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
