RP 90 points: "The houseÔÇÖs 1998 La Grande Dame reveals notable clarity and precision. This focused, poised wine emerges from the glass with well-articulated flowers, pears, smoke, crisp apples and minerals in a medium-bodied style. The wine appears to have enough freshness and sheer depth to support another decade or so of aging. La Grand Dame represents a significant step up from the estateÔÇÖs other wines. In 1998 La Grande Dame is 64% Pinot Noir (Ay, Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy) and 36% Chardonnay (Avize, Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger). This is Lot 510 2572, disgorged between December, 2006 and January, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018. ||Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin is one of ChampagneÔÇÖs best known brands thanks to the success of its ÔÇ£yellow labelÔÇØ non-vintage wine and the tete de cuvee La Grande Dame.||Importer: Moet Hennessy USA, New York, NY"
