AN HOMMAGE TO LA GRANDE DAME

This is not the first time these two women have met: in 2006, for a charity auction in Tokyo, Yayoi Kusama had already given new life to a portrait of Madame Clicquot, incorporating her famous dots in the process. Today, the dialogue between the artist and the Champagne House continues, going one step further through this creative collaboration.

Yayoi Kusama drew inspiration from iconic forms - dots and flowers - in her creation of the new case and bottle for La Grande Dame 2012.

TASTING NOTES

Madame Clicquot, 1825

Madame Clicquot was convinced that Pinot Noir is the grape variety with the broadest range of expression and the greatest potential to create the best champagnes. The oenological prowess and harmony of La Grande Dame lies in its blend. Composed of 90% Pinot Noir, La Grande Dame embodies the House's love for this grape, which is further enhanced by 10% Chardonnay.
