Champagne Veuve Clicquot
2004 La Grande Dame

Veuve Clicquot is one of the few Champagne brands named for a woman, the widow of François Clicquot, son of the founder. Having inherited a large company with diverse operations, she decided to focus on Champagne. Primarily composed of Pinot Noir, the 2004 La Grande Dame displays complex peach and floral aromas. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied and features a chalky minerality that reflects its terroir.

Price: $150
