”veuve clicquot yellow label brut has been the symbol of the house since 1772. A perfect balance between power and finesse its complexity comes from the predominant presence of pinot noir and reserve wines. It showcases our superb vineyards and the consistent style of our house. The blend: grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different crus are used for the blending of yellow label. The predominance of pinot noir provides the core structure of clicquot while a touch of meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential to a perfectly balanced wine. Traditionally the proportion of each grape variety used is 50 to 55% pinot noir 15 to 20% meunier and 28 to 33% chardonnay these figures vary slightly from year to year depending on conditions. The chef de caves has to achieve the total consistency of taste which makes yellow label immediately recognizable utterly reliable both in terms of quality color and aroma. The blend draws on a particularly high percentage of reserve wines originating from several harvests (usually 5 or 6): from 25 to 35% sometimes as much as 40% to ensure the consistency of the house style. Each of these older wines – up to 9 years old – is kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of the vineyard and the vintage. Tasting notes: appearance: golden-yellow tiny bubbles aromas: fruity (peach mirabelle plum pear) vanilla toasty (brioche) food pairing: seafood aperitif fish tartare salmon duck blinis. “tightly knit focused by robust acidity and a streak of minerality this offers subtle notes of white peach anise biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note. Drink now through 2022.” wine spectator.” – veuve clicquot ponsardin
