There are plenty of lovers of the famous Yellow Label who refuse point blank to drink anything else. A stunning non vintage with great body and roundness, it never disappoints.
Lingering fruity flavours of apple and pear on the palate create a fresh, harmonious and lively Champagne.
Grapes from as many as 60 vineyards make up the Yellow label blend. Usually the proportion of each grape variety is around 55% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier and 30% Chardonnay. The chief blender will draw on reserve wines to form the cuvee. Each of these older wines (some up to 8 years old) are used to maintain consistency year after year.
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.
This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal.
