Description

An elegant Champagne, powered by a sculpted frame of acidity and minerality, this wears the refined, lacy mousse and well-meshed flavors of black currant, lemon curd, toast and marzipan like finely tailored clothing. Fresh and lasting, with hints of spice and smoke on the finish. Disgorged August . Drink now through 2033.

Wine Advocate: 88 Points

The La Grande Dame offers up subtle aromas of honeycomb, crisp orchard fruit and brioche, followed by a medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy palate, with a frothy mousse, ripe acids and little in the way of concentration, concluding with a somewhat fleeting finish. The overall impression is disappointingly anonymous, especially in the context of the vintage and the track record of this generally dependable cuvée. This example was disgorged in May . Can it really be a representative bottle?
