Description

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV is an exquisite Champagne that originates from the esteemed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin House, located in the heart of the Champagne region in France.

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV, often referred to as the "Yellow Label," is one of the House's most renowned and recognizable creations. It is a non-vintage Champagne, meaning it is crafted from a blend of wines from different years, carefully selected to ensure consistency and excellence. This Champagne showcases the House's expertise in blending, with a precise combination of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier grapes. The grapes are sourced from vineyards across the Champagne region, where the unique terroir and cool climate contribute to the grapes' exceptional quality. The Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV is characterized by its distinctive yellow label, which was introduced in the early 19th century to set it apart from other Champagnes. It has since become an iconic symbol of the House's dedication to quality and craftsmanship. When you open a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV, you are greeted with a captivating Champagne experience. The wine exhibits a beautiful golden color and a lively effervescence, which is a result of the secondary fermentation that occurs in the bottle. The aroma is rich and inviting, with fragrant notes of ripe fruits, toasted brioche, and a hint of vanilla. On the palate, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV offers a perfect balance of freshness and depth. The flavors of apple, pear, and citrus intertwine harmoniously with delicate toasty nuances. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lasting impression. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV is a versatile Champagne that can be enjoyed on its own as a celebratory aperitif or paired with a range of culinary delights. It embodies the essence of the Veuve Clicquot House's commitment to excellence, making it a symbol of luxury, elegance, and celebration.

Tasting Notes

First, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label looks beautiful: golden-yellow, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. Next it is so pleasing to the nose: initially reminiscent of yellow and white fruits, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas, result of the three years of bottle aging. The first sip delivers all the freshness and strength so typical of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following on (pear, lemon). Here is a true member of the Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or almond notes distinct. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - strength and silkiness - and to hold them in perfect balance with aromatic intensity and a lot of freshness. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an apéritif, and perfect as the champagne to enjoy with a meal.
