The Original Classic, presented in the iconic Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label branded Gift box. The champagne is a beautiful golden-yellow colour, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. The nose is initially reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche. A fine balance between the fruity aromas from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas so typical of Yellow Label following the ageing in the bottle.
Freshness and fullness on the palate with a symphony of fruit tastes following on from toasty brioche heaven. A true member of the powerful Brut family; well structured, admirably vinous. Lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with fruit or spice notes distinct.
The iconic Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label uses grapes from 50 to 60 different crus, the blend of the three 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier, 28 to 33% Chardonnay. The Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - forcefulness and finesse - and to hold them in perfect balance. True to Madame Clicquot's wishes, this is a perfect example of harmony between delicacy and power.
