    Veuve Clicquot Vintage Champagne 1990
    La Grande Dame
    nl
    Magnum (1)


    "The '90s give a very soft and sweet impression. Experience shows that these wines, despite their immediate charm, have good potential. The strong scent of newly baked saffron bread is almost like a parody. There is also a fantastic attack and a rich, accelerating taste of exotic fruits, vanilla, and lemon chiffon pie. Honestly, I have missed the chocolate-flavored Champagne that went into the curvy bottle that was available until 1985. Peters and his eight-man-strong team have really put the pieces together. It's a wonderful wine!" (93 pts. Richard Juhlin, Aug. 2012)

    “I highly recommend the Veuve Clicquot 1990 La Grande Dame. It is exquisitely rich and accessible, yet bursting with potential.” (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #119, Oct. 1998)


    Estimate: $260 - $350.
