So young but so good. Time to load up on these 08s. We’ll be happy we did in 5-10 years. Gobble gobble

The 2008 ‘La Grand Dame’ by Veuve Clicquot is a revelation at more than ten years old. At this stage the Champagne is a tightly wound, monster of a wine, displaying deep diatomaceous earth tones that marvelously mingle with lemon oil and hazelnut aromatics that all are woven together in the glass. Rich, round and highly satisfying on the mouth, the palate shows shades of roasted pineapple, Japanese pear, kumquat, salted praline and suggestions of freshly baked sourdough bread. This is massive now and really needs a few years of bottle age before enjoying. Drink 2020-2040- 95

Underwhelming. Lacking structure. Short finish. And most importantly not lacked cohesion.

Tonight I learned there is a lot more to that yellow label. What a night with Veuve Clicquot’s winemaker Pierre Casenave. Thanks Clare for making this happen!

It was delicious, and a generous gift. But I must not have the palette to appreciate this over a regular bottle of Veuve.
