La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 offers a beautiful pink gold with light copper hues. It is full-bodied and smooth, then becomes refined with fresh aromas. The Pinot Noir's generosity resonates beautifully after a slow and long aging in the Veuve Clicquot cellars. The wine shows powerful notes of red fruits (raspberry and strawberry), combined with citrus notes (blood orange, grapefruit), and finally holds a perfect balance between subtle and spicy with notes of red berries, rooibos tea and fine leather. The attack is delicate and smooth. In full harmony with the nose, fruit outshines the palate and presents intensity in red and black fruits (cherry, strawberry, blackberry and blackcurrant). The strength and youth are carved by long aging notes, dried flowers and smoky notes, presenting an incredible complexity which is worthy of the best Pinot Noir of Champagne. Pairs well with beef ravioli with prawns, lamb, and stuffed tomatoes.

There's a racy tension here, with vivid acidity and an underlying streak of minerality, yet this is elegant overall, with a finely detailed mousse and well-meshed flavors of ripe raspberry, nectarine, Earl Grey tea and biscuit. Offers a long, chalk-tinged finish. Disgorged August 2016. Drink now through 2030.

Veuve Clicquot's prestige cuvée is a ripe, mature wine. With toastiness coming from soft fruit and a rich textured character, it is a classic of this producer's ripe style. The wine's acidity and crisp edge make a good contrast to the full-bodied character. Drink now.
