1993 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne

SKU #990821 95 points Wine & Spirits

 (No tasting note)  (12/2000)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Very ripe aromas of pear, apple, cinnamon, mace, toast and honeysuckle. Large-scaled, rich and mouthfilling, with a flavor of toffee apple. This is thick with extract but can't quite equal the best Grande Dame vintages for concentration and thrust. But still impeccably made, very rich Champagne. (ST)  (11/2001)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Cellar Selection* Young, with a taut citrus, ginger, mineral, soice and floral bouquet, this bright and light-on-its-feet wine has lots of dimension. Yellow fruit flavors, anise accents and fine fruit-to-acid balance mark the cream, yet airy palate. The mineral-chalk and the citrus-peel finish is long, with brisk acidity. High-strung, like fine white Burgundy; though delicious now, it will benefit from aging for three to six plus years.  (12/2001)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
