La Grande Dame 2008 rose (giftbox)
During her life madame Clicquot, a young widow who took over her late husband's business in 1805, was called 'La Grande Dame de la Champagne'. This headstrong business woman built the company we now know from the bright yellow labels.
The top cuvee is a hommage to this lady: a vintage champagne in a special bottle and pretty packaging. A pinot noir based champagne made of grapes from grand cru vineyards.
Growing season 2008 started off chilly, but a sunny not too hot summer offered grapes wonderful ripening changes. Relatively cool 2008 is considered one of the best vintage years in the new millennium.
