Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rose 1998
The first nose is already very expressive, with fruity (strawberry, pink grapefruit, quince) and spicy notes (pepper, cinnamon) at the forefront against a refined mineral background. When the wine is rotated, more gourmet aromas of fruit appear (griotte cherry and blackberry jam), interwoven with the flavour of brioche. The extraordinary aromatic complexity of this wine becomes even more intense when tasted. In the mouth, the wine reveals aromas of griotte cherry, grenadine, and crystallized backberry, highlighted by the presence of sweet spices (vanilla), endowing La Grande Dame Rosé 1998 with an exceptional smoothness.
Perfumed, showing pencil shavings, violet and berry notes allied to a firm, chalky profile. A little angular, but has character and good length.
