About the 2012 La Grande Dame:

La Grande Dame, The Glory Of Pinot Noir: Yayoi Kusama adorns the La Grande Dame 2012 case and bottle with her iconic symbols. The opulent flower symbolizes vital energy, love, and celebration of life. The polka dots, Yayoi Kusama's signature patterns, are reworked like champagne bubbles to embody La Grande Dame 2012. La Grande Dame 2012 blend is made mainly from grapes from historical Grands Crus vineyards, among the most prestigious in Champagne. Pinot Noir dominates the blend at 90%, magnified by 10% Chardonnay. This is a wine that is both precise and delicate, it is playful, lively, and laughing. This new vintage offers a strong minerality carried by Pinot Noir balanced with the freshness of the blend. Its aging potential is immense.

About the woman who created the Champagne industry:

The Veuve Clicquot story begins in 1772, founded by Philippe Clicquot, a fabric merchant in Reims, France. The company initially focused on textiles. However, its trajectory shifted when Philippe's son, François Clicquot, married Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin in 1798. Together, they developed a passion for the champagne business within the family firm. Sadly, François passed away young in 1805. This is where Barbe-Nicole, defying societal expectations for women at the time, took over the company at the age of 27. She became known as Veuve Clicquot, "Veuve" meaning widow in French. This bold move marked the start of an incredible journey that would shape the champagne industry forever.
