Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut Champagne 75cl with 2 Acrylic Drinking Flutes
Veuve Clicquot's champagne style radiates elegance, vibrancy & edge with a unique yellow signature. Founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot, the house was later taken over by his widow Madame Clicquot at the age of 27 in 1810. Through determination, intuition and acumen Madame Clicquot not only created the first recorded vintage in the champagne region but built up the Veuve Clicquot property to make it one of the foremost vineyards in all of Champagne. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is the ultimate reflection of the superb vineyards and consistent nature of the house style. Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus go into the blending of Brut Yellow Label and The Chef de Caves draws on priceless reserve wines to achieve the total consistency of quality and taste.
Golden yellow with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. The champagne presents a fine balance between fruity aromas and more subtle toasty notes, with initial reminiscences of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche.
With all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label, here is a true member of the powerful Brut family. Well structured, admirably vinous with lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice note distinct.Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label blends 30-45% reserve wines with grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different crus. 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. The long aging in our Crayères (3 years minimum for Yellow Label) gives silkiness to the Champagne.
