Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV Champagne typically comprises 50-55% Pinot Noir, 15-20% Pinot Meunier and 28-33% Chardonnay. A high proportion of priceless reserve wines (between 24 to 40% ensures the continuity of the House style. The dominance of Pinot Noir grapes gives Yellow Label its strong structure, while a touch of Pinot Meunier adds to its roundness, leaving Chardonnay to provide the finesse it needs for perfect balance. Assembled from about 50 crus and carefully stocked reserve wines, this provides the wine with its inimitable Clicquot style.

"The latest rendition of Clicquot's emblematic NV Brut Yellow Label contains around 35% reserve wines—mostly from the last five vintages—and was finished with 10 grams per liter dosage. Offering up aromas of warm bread, peach, citrus oil and crushed chalk, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a sweet core of fruit marked by a touch of sweetness from its dosage, concluding with a clean, nicely defined finish. Almost 20 million bottles are produced every year."robertparker.com

An elegant wine of dark red berry fruits, dried herbs and spicy savoury notes. Elegant and complex, boasting layers of spice, earthy cedar and forest floor; fine tannins, a silky texture and a long, lingering intensity finish.
