1976 Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin La Grande Dame 75cl / 12%
A bottle of 1976 La Grande Dame, the flagship 'prestige cuvée' Champagne from Veuve Clicquot, a 62% Pinot Noir and 38% Chardonnay blend.
This is the old presentation in the curvier bottle which was changed into a broader design from the 1985 vintage onwards.
'Many years went by before I ran into this fantastic wine. This grandiose Champagne is still very fresh, light, and lively, with a colossal fruity richness and sweet concentration....the '79 has more finesse and the '76 is even more concentrated. 97/100' Richard Juhlin, 4000 Champagnes, Tasted 2003

We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment. Wines are more fragile than spirits and older wines may be listed, at our discretion, for their historical interest rather than their drinkability.
