Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus go to the blending of Yellow Label. He 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.
Golden yellow with tiny bubbles. Aromas of yellow and white fruits, vanilla, toasty (brioche).
Suggested pairings are sea food, fish tartar, bilinis, Salmon, crackers, pasta, cheeses (Parmesan, Dutch Gouda, a young Comté, and Tomme de Montagne), or on its own as an aperitif.
94 Decanter <2021>
Lemony richness on the nose, a struck-match character that falls in with a lemon vanilla note. Toffee apple allure on the palate with chalky coolness and a savoury, nutty finish.
90 Wine Spectator <2020>
This fresh and balanced Champagne is lightly toasty, with snappy acidity and a lively, creamy mousse carrying flavors of white cherry, pickled ginger and saline-laced minerality.
90 Wine Enthusiast <2020>
One of the most popular of all Champagnes, this is now showing a freshness that wasn't always there. The crisp texture and green-apple flavors give it an immediate drinkability as well as perfumed acidity and a vibrant aftertaste. Drink this bottling now.
