La Grande Dame Reveal

This unique wine is housed in a bottle whose elegant lines recall the hand-blown shapes of ages past. In smoked glass stamped with the anchor and comet emblems of the House, each bottle bears a leaden seal around its stopper, a birth certificate guaranteeing its noble lineage. To mark the great event, La Grande Dame could do no less than appear in new attire, as practical as it is elegant.

La Grande Dame Reveal

The first thing we see is a fine black box, covered in a saddle-stitched soft-finished paper that feels like leather. Pull gently on the yellow gros grain silk ribbon – reminiscent of the kind of ribbon Madame Clicquot tied around her bottles – to reveal the luminous interior and liberate the precious bottle from its protective rotating display. Using paper derived from ecologically managed forests, it is also a reminder of the road to sustainable development on which Veuve Clicquot set out some ten years ago.
