"La Grande Dame... is
one of the top three prestige cuvees on the market."
Vintage sparklers crafted from a single superlative harvest year are by common consent Champagne’s very best, and today’s thrilling example is a case in point. Comprised of fruit sourced from Grand Cru vineyards, the 2012 La Grande Dame - enclosed in an effervescently colorful limited-edition case playfully dotted and designed by artist Yayoi Kusama - is as singular as the inimitable Madame Clicquot, whose ground-breaking technique known as riddling not only gave her competitive advantage but also transformed Champagne. The 2012 harvest proved to be a 5-star vintage that yielded ultra-ripe and flavorful Pinot Noir, the dominant varietal of La Grande Dame. Bubbling over with strawberries, raspberries, and apples offset by citrus suggestions, mineral hints, as well as pastry notes, today’s offer is pure magic and a classic in the making!
