Veuve Clicquot, La Grande Dame, Brut 1996

RRP £156

From the original disgorgement, this Chardonnay-Pinot Noir blend is showing some subtle oxidative aromas with deep candied fruits and ripe apricot undertones. The palate has lovely depth and that amazing backbone of bright acidity so typical of the vintage – and like all the standout examples, is kept in balance via ripe fruits and toasted characters on the finish. A very harmonious bottle, with a precise, firm texture and an amazing length.
