Veuve Clicquot: La Grande Dame Tasting
1:30pm - 3:00pm
Address will be provided to ticket holders in early May
Created in 1972 to celebrate the bicentennial of the House, La Grande Dame is a tribute to Madame Clicquot also known as ‘La Grande Dame de la Champagne’. Bearing the name bestowed on her as a mark of respect and recognition by her peers in Champagne, La Grande Dame cuvée is the very symbol of the driving force that guided Madame Clicquot throughout her life: an obsessive search for quality.
Known among connoisseurs as one of the finest champagnes in the world, it’s the pride and joy of the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin. Ethereal, free and original, the La Grande Dame teases aficionados with its rarity, making an appearance only when nature offers a concordance of perfect conditions. Join Cellar Master Dominique Demarville as you taste vintages of Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame and Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rosé.
