Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is the signature champagne of the House. A perfect balance between power and finesse, its complexity comes from the predominant presence of Pinot Noir and Reserve Wines. First, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label looks beautiful: golden-yellow, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. Next it is so pleasing to the nose—initially reminiscent of yellow and white fruits, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the ﬁne balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas, the result of the three years of bottle aging. The ﬁrst sip delivers all the freshness and strength so typical of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following (pear, lemon). Here is a true member of the Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or almond notes distinct. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors—strength and silkiness—and to hold them in perfect balance with aromatic intensity and a lot of freshness. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an apéritif, and perfect as the champagne to enjoy with a meal.
