Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Yellow Label Brut Non Vintage Champagne Magnum
‘Yellow Label’ is blended from over 50 wines taken from different Crus (vineyards) and several vintages to produce the house style – all from the three Champagne grape varieties, and is usually around 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier – depending on the wine.
In 2012 Wine spectator rated Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label as 92/100, describing it as “tightly knit, focused by a racy acidity with a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note.”
This Champagne is a great choice as a reception drink on arrival, for the wedding toast or for matching with food. To fully appreciate the bubbles, subtleties and aromas of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, serve chilled in a tulip glass filled around two thirds full at around six degrees centigrade – just a touch warmer than your fridge. Then enjoy!
