Critic Notes

Clicquot’s 2004 Brut Rose La Grande Dame – which incorporates 39% Chardonnay with its Pinot – is pale salmon in color, its tangy and vivacious alliance of fresh red currant, fraise du bois and grapefruit with mouthwatering maritime salinity – amid stimulatingly fine-grained tannin – making for persistently savory satisfaction. The balance of refreshment and levity with fine-grained, almost silken texture and the entirely supportive nature of its subtle sweetness add to this Grande Dame’s irresistibility today, though I anticipate deeper flavors accumulating over the next couple of years in bottle.||Imported by Moet Hennessy, New York, NY; tel.

A sheltered existence geographically coupled with a lack of business savvy has, for many centuries, meant it never quite achieved the same global acclaim that ...
