Blend and Origin
Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Blanc 2008
Pinot noir (92%) and chardonnay (8%) from six grand cru vineyards – Aÿ, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy, Verzenay and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger – make up this vintage. A cool and rainy spring and a cool, dry summer created grapes with a remarkable acidity that recalled other extraordinary vintages from the maison. Aged for 10 years, it has a complexity that will develop further in time.
Additional delivery charges may apply. This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Pair with white meats and seafood

Poached chicken served with a sesame dressing and crunchy Asian greens makes an excellent accompaniment.
