With La Grande Dame 2015, Veuve Clicquot collaborated with Italian ceramicist, Paola Paronetto.
Paronetto pays tribute to Madame Clicquot through the use six different colorful giftboxes made with her paper clay technique to house the new cuvée, the company says.
100% recyclable and made in France, the collection is made from “next-generation material” (60% of hemp) as well as 20% of FSC-certified wood fibers and 20% cotton, the company says, reducing the CO2 impact of previous packs by 30%.
La Grande Dame 2015 is the 24th vintage of this cuvée, honoring Madame Clicquot and timed to the 250th anniversary of Veuve Clicquot this year. The vintage respects Madame Clicquot’s vision of pinot noir, which has comprised about 90% of the wine since 2008, using historical Grand Crus, the company says.
This wine pairs with pea gnocchi in a chervil broth with thin shavings of green apple, the company says.The suggested retail price is $210 per 750-ml. bottle.The post Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2015 first appeared on Beverage Dynamics.
