Veuve Clicquot unveils La Grande Dame Rosé 2015, a tribute to Madame Clicquot’s pioneering spirit.

In 1818, she defied conventional practices by blending her red wine from her beloved ‘Clos Colin’ parcel with her white wine. Criticized at first, she is now acknowledged as the inventor of the first known blended rosé champagne.

“La Grande Dame 2015 Rosé is the essence of Madame Clicquot: the perfect expression of her force of character, her energy, her creativity and above all, her love of Pinot Noir.”
Didier Mariotti, Cellars Master

La Grande Dame is Veuve Clicquot at its best

La Grande Dame Rosé 2015 vintage, featuring a blend of 90% of Pinot Noir and 10% of Chardonnay, is blended with 13% Pinot Noir red wine from the historical parcel ‘Clos Colin’.

Pinot Noir’s unique, precise quality stands as the backbone of Veuve Clicquot champagnes. The versatility and freshness of Pinot Noir capture the essence of the Champagne region’s unique terroir.

Veuve Clicquot’s latest cuvée harmoniously blends the sun-filled 2015 vintage with the precision, depth, and character of Pinot Noir red wine. Spice notes, such as pepper, nutmeg, and clove, intertwine with the delicate aromas of red fruit, as well as floral hints of rose and violet.
