Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2012 750ml

The winter was particularly cold and long. The spring was mixed, but with good conditions for budding. The flowers opened in late June, in what was unseasonally hot weather. The summer was chaotic, with an August worthy of late autumn. Fortunately, the vines were able to draw on their reserves, to produce an abundant yield of superb quality.

Therefore, between 14th and 29th September, we harvested a very fine crop of grapes. At the very end of picking, Botrytis struck, though it had no impact on the quality of the harvest. An effective sorting operation was carried out.

The Pinot Noir wines are fruity and full-bodied; the Chardonnay wines are of considerable distinction.
