Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors – strength and silkiness – and to hold them in perfect balance with aromatic intensity and a lot of freshness. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal.
Veuve Cliquot Vintage Rose 2004
The Vintage Rose 2004 offers a deep pink colour with the highlights of copper and delicate, light effervescence. The nose, extremely elegant, at first reveals flavours of ripe red fruits that burst on the tongue, before gradually giving way to violets, lilacs and light “pastry” notes. A discreet touch of ground coffee can also be distinguished. The attack is forthright and energetic.
This generous wine offers an astonishingly long and subtle finish. It is extremely complex and is distinguished by great freshness. On the palate, strong notes of fruit recall the refined nose. The finish is surprising in is persistence.

Veuve Cliquot La Grande Dame
The initial nose reveals a strong, aerial and delicate attack. Once opened, the wine has notes of dried fruits (almonds, figs, apricots), ripe white fruits (pears) and finishes on subtle toasted notes of hazelnut and praline. These pastry notes create a perfect balance with the freshness and clarity of the blend.
The attack in the mouth is strong and clean. La Grande Dame 2008 has a silky texture on young fruits, supported by citrus and notes of red fruits (cherry).
The Pinot Noir is extraordinarily distinguished by its freshness, minerality and power. La Grande Dame 2008 is a perfect balance of complexity, structure and power.
