A light, shimmering gold.

A vibrant, fresh opening gives way to more rounded aromas of dried figs and apricots, ripe pear and a hint of hazelnuts.

A sharp minerality shines through in this vintage, with flavours of citrus and cherry complemented by a silky texture. With a high proportion of pinot noir, it finds a perfect balance between freshness and structure.

The high percentage of pinot noir lends this vintage champagne extraordinary structure and strength, tempered by a pleasingly fresh minerality, silky texture and elegant complexity. This magnum is the perfect note on which to start a celebration.A tribute to Madame Clicquot, La Grande Dame 2008 reflects the best of the maison’s grand cru terroir. Delicate and rare, it is a champagne with outstanding aging potential.

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.

Would pair beautifully with a starter of light seabass ceviche or fresh raw oysters. Would be an excellent accompaniment to a main of poached chicken served with a sesame dressing and crunchy Asian greens.
