La Grande Dame For A Really Grand Mom

May 1, 2024

Mother’s Day calls for a grand gift, and Veuve Clicquot has just the thing to make mom feel like a queen.

La Grande Dame is a longstanding tribute to strong women, specifically Madame Clicquot, whose nickname, “La Grande Dame de la Champagne,” inspired this prestigious label. La Grande Dame 2015 marks the 24th vintage since 1972, when Veuve Clicquot launched its first prestige cuvée to celebrate the House’s bicentenary. For the La Grande Dame 2015, Veuve Clicquot continued to claim optimism through colours with an unprecedented collaboration with Italian designer Paola Paronetto.

Described as the master of colours, ceramist Paronetto has created a collection of six gift boxes in a shower of hues from her palette, infused with emotion, optimism and commitment. The whole set is a symphony of colours that chime harmoniously with each other and make a very memorable gift.

Two hundred years ago, Madame Clicquot was already fond of Pinot Noir. This grape variety expresses itself differently according to its terroir, its exposure, and the year in which it is harvested. Delicacy, detail, and precision are embodied in its great complexity. Taught and precise, it fully expresses the terroir with freshness and minerality, offering light floral notes of jasmine and acacia on the nose, evolving toward fruity notes of pear and clementine.

The long and short: mom will love it. —Vita Daily
