It would be better to once an item is selected from the dropdownlist, to save this value into the database and then to bind the gridview to the database. This way, your value will be there.
But if you don't want to save it into the database, you can access the label as following:

((Label)(GridView1.Rows[0].FindControl("YourLabel"))).Text = DropDownList.SelectedItem.Text;
