Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin La Grande Dame 2004
La Grande Dame 2004 has a pale gold colour with jade glints. The wine is crystal clear, with unbelievably fine bubbles.
On the first nose, typical Chardonnay characteristics come to the fore, with the arrival of floral and mineral aromas (acacia, ferns, chalk). By agitating the wine, scents of candied fruit (citrus fruits, apricots, quince) and sweet almond emerge, to reappear later in the mouth. After rotating the wine for a few minutes more, rare notes such as peaty malt, tobacco and delicate herbs, are gradually unveiled.
This aromatic, impressively complex bouquet is confirmed in the mouth.
On the palate, the wine is clear-cut and pure, perfectly balanced with a delightful silky smoothness.
La Grande Dame 1998, with its lace-like construction, has a long, lively, and structured finish. This wine has unbelievable ageing potential.
