(Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame) I liked the Grande Dame a lot for drinking now, but I felt it won’t get any better. Its musk and fireplace qualities blended into its bready and fat personality, but its tasty fruit was maturing fast, a sentiment that RJ seconded. It was fairly consistent with the bottle he had the week prior, although actually a bit better on this night.
