Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut NV Champagne 37.5cl
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is the signature of Veuve Clicquot’s quality and style. It manages to reconcile two opposing factors - strength and silkiness - and hold them in perfect balance with aromatic intensity and a lot of freshness. Its consistent power to please makes Yellow Label ideal as an aperitif, and perfect to be enjoyed throughout the meal. Try pairing Yellow Label with fish tartar, salmon or blinis, or with some Parmesan for the ideal cheese pairing.
The Pinot Noir predominance (50-55%) provides the structure that is so typically Veuve Clicquot, while Chardonnay (28-33%) adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine, and a touch of Meunier (15-20%) rounds out the blend.
On the nose: yellow and white fruits, then notes of vanilla and later of brioche. On the palate: freshness and strength while pear and lemon tastes appear. Finish: admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or almond notes distinct. Ideal as an aperitif, and ideal as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal.

The nose is initially reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche. A fine balance between the fruity aromas from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the ageing in the bottle. Freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following from toasty brioche heaven. A true member of the powerful Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. Lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with fruit or spice notes distinct.
Madame Clicquot's wine displays a superb marriage of freshness and power, gorgeous and deceptively pale colour with fine, persistent bubbles - a poised, delicately bready nose - and on the palate a richness of fruit and mouth-filling mousse that lingers long. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - forcefulness and finesse - and to hold them in perfect balance.
