1995 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne

SKU #1000433 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This wine was recommended, but no tasting note was given. (RP)  (12/2002)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep but youthfully unevolved aromas of toffee apple, lemon and mint. Penetrating, rich and thick, with a deep, yeasty, baked bread component. At once brisk and seamless but brooding more than expressive today. Finishes long, dry and backward. This may ultimately merit a score in the mid-90s. (ST) 92+  (12/2002)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Luscious and deliciously flavorful, this has very ripe, round fruits and plenty of spicy power. It’s tasty and impactful, extremely flavorful and forward, displaying loads of sweet vanilla and semi-tropical fruits, all wrapped around a long, full, lush finish.  (12/2003)

91 points Wine Spectator

 A '95 with attitude. Firm, focused and full of biscuit, citrus and hazelnut flavors backed by vivid acidity, though there's enough creaminess to keep everything in line. Good, nutty finish. (BS)  (11/2003)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 A fully mature 1995, this is a main-course Champagne, its flavors of nuts and brioche suited to roast veal. The flavors are almost meaty, with hints of rosemary and woody herbs. Ready to drink.  (12/2011)

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.
