Clicquot’s signature brut non-vintage is loved the world over for its crisp, full flavors, consistent quality and celebratory yellow label. This classically-styled, dry Champagne is a blend of two-thirds black grapes (pinot noir and pinot meunier) for body, balanced with one-third chardonnay for elegance. It has a fine persistent sparkle and golden Champagne color. Its complex nose of apple, citrus and caramel is followed by full flavors with elegance, crispness and a slightly spicy finish.
Go on. Paint the town yellow!
Veuve Clicquot writes: "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."
Paint the town yellow with this benchmark Champagne. Veuve remains in any discussion of the world's favourite Champagnes and opening a bottle of the famous yellow label is the perfect way to turn an event into a special occasion.
