"The prestigious 2006 La Grande Dame is made from 47% Chardonnay and 53% Pinot Noir, and assembles the fruit of eight grand cru villages. Very intense and complex on the nose, a waft of spring blossom draws you into this elegant Champagne, whose subtle notes of poached quince, toasted brioche and mandarin orange gracefully ride the satiny mousse, supported by a vibrant backbone of acidity.
A full-bodied, round, rich and mouth-filling Champagne, but also refined prestige cuvee; it reveals a fascinating purity, precision and freshness. Developing more into the spicy and savory zone, the fruit is sweetening as it ages, too. Aromas of grapefruit citrus and yellow peach, with some flinty notes, as well as honey and almond nougat. The palate delivers cherry fruit flavors with spiced pastry in a fluid, open-knit and mellow mode.
The finish is long and complex, and shows a spicy minerality, with coffee beans, bread and toast aromas in the aftertaste. Drink now through 2029. " - Wine Spectator
