Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label NV

Winemaker's Notes:

This is iconic Champagne from one of the most famous producers in the world. Madame Clicquot's relentless promotion of her product, coupled with her unerring ability to make fantastic vintage and non vintage Champagnes has elevated 'Veuve' into the premier league of sparkling wine production. This non vintage wine combines freshness, elegance and power. It is a pleasing pale straw colour with some yeasty notes from the glass. On the palate the fruit is rich and beautifully presented. Truly a wine for any (happy) occasion.

Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot is among the most prestigious Champagne Houses. Its extensive holdings, many originally purchased by Madame Clicquot, stretch throughout the top-rated areas of the Champagne region and are exceptional in size and quality. As in madame Clicquot's day, bottles age in the House's vast, vaulted cellars in Reims, portions of which were constructed some 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The remarkable Madame Clicquot (1777-1866) is considered one of the first business-women of the modern era. Widowed in 1805 at the age of 27, Madame Veuve Clicquot (born Ponsardin) defied every convention of the day to take the helm of her late husband's small Champagne House. She personally supervised cellar activities and introduced innovative production techniques still used today. Champagne Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied Champagne. Read less

One the most popular Champagnes in the world, Veuve Clicquot is consistently first rate. Recently the Wine Spectator wrote about Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut "The goal is to make a Champagne that replicates the house style, while also delivering balance, finesse and complexity." Clicquot’s chef de cave Dominique Demarville and his team blend up to 500 base wines to make a final cuvee that is as exceptional as it can possibly be. Spectator scored this spectacular sparkler 90 points and said "Hints of toast and biscuit accent lightly honeyed flavors of quince, apple blossom and peach in this fresh and balanced Champagne. There’s a stony underpinning, with a smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2013." All Champagne orders require 3-5 days processing. No express delivery available on Champagne.

Well-balanced and pleasantly fresh to taste, with a remarkable fruity structure. Yellow Label is the epitome of the Veuve Clicquot style. Brut Yellow Label is the perfect apertif, and a welcome accompaniment for meal of seafood or fish.

Lovely bouquet of fresh bread dough, chalk and vanilla. Ripe apple flavors laced with vanilla and pecan. Creamy finish with an enhancing note of autolysis. A full-bodied Champagne, this has been enriched by reserve wines to add depth and smoky lees intensity to its brisk, youthful elements. Its a satisfying Brut to serve with poached prawns. Hints of toast and biscuit accent lightly honeyed flavors of quince, apple blossom and peach in this fresh and balanced Champagne. There's a stony underpinning, with a smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2013. ** Only 13 in Stock **
