Product Notes:
Slightly soiled label only 1 bottle available. We also have 1993 vintage 750ml Size available.
96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Rich, multidimensional, highly aromatic nose of pear, red berries, apple, honey, toast and spice. Extremely rich and concentrated, with its medium to full body leavened by bright citrus notes and compelling minerality. Great inner-mouth aromas. Conveys an impression of powerful yet remarkably fine raw materials. The spicy finish offers exceptional persistence and richness. (12/ 1999) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate I highly recommend the Veuve Clicquot 1990 La Grande Dame. It is exquisitely rich and accessible, yet bursting with potential. (10/ 1998) 92 points Wine Enthusiast Tight and straightforward, but quite complex. Licorice and lime grace the linear palate. A lot of intense but soft fruit in the mouth. An immensely clear, forward and stately Champagne. One of those 'big name' status bubblies that does what it takes to deserve its praise. (12/ 1999) 90 points Wine Spectator Assertive and buttery style, dry and bold in flavor, but with the lively effervescence and toasty finish for balance. (10/ 1999)

Food Pairing:
Recommended food pairings for specific champagnes: Although these are only guidelines as taste is a very personal thing.
Brut non vintage:
Scrambled eggs,Any mushroom dish Nuts, especially almonds Popcorn and potato crisps Cheese- especially hard cheeses such as parmesan, gouda or cheddar. Pasta or risotto-especially with cream or mushroom sauce. Avoid heavy tomato-based sauces as the acidity clashes with the high acidity of the champagne. Thin crust pizza, but not with heavy tomato-based topping.
Rose
Vegetables Fish and seafood Poultry and game birds ie duck
Blanc de Blancs:
Sushi,Goats cheese. Poultry especially duck Pink-roasted lamb Seafood and fish Vintages: All fish and seafood dishes especially with rich, creamy sauces. Duck Caviar Desserts that are not too sweet may be accompanied by a demi-sec champagne. Chocolate can be accompanied by an extra brut or demi-sec or a full flavoured dry rosT.

Recipe:
An intimate setting or wedding reception begs for one of these Champagne Cocktail recipes. But don't stop there! A champagne cocktail adds a special touch to any party suitable for champagne. Just use the party-size recipe version below and follow the make-ahead tips for easy party preparation.
Party-Size Champagne Cocktail Recipe

1/2 cup simple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons Angostura bitters
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup Cognac (or Brandy or Grand Marnier)
2 (750ml) bottles champagne
Orange twist halves and cocktail cherries for garnish


Simple Syrup: Dissolve 1 part sugar in 1 part boiling water. Cool.

Chill all ingredients before assembling. Combine simple syrup, bitters, lemon juice and Cognac and set aside. Refrigerate if making ahead. When you are ready to serve, thread the orange twists and cocktail cherries onto picks and insert in champagne flutes. Pour the simple syrup mixture into a pitcher. Gently stir in the champagne. Pour into flutes. 14-16 servings.

Tip:Make as much of the simple syrup mixture as you think you'll need ahead of time. Use a scant cup of the mixture per 2 bottles of champagne.
