Champagne Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label

Veuve Clicquot: An Iconic Champagne Legacy Rooted in Reims

The storied legacy of Veuve Clicquot stretches back over two centuries to 1772, when the house was first established in the historic champagne capital of Reims, France. From its inception, Veuve Clicquot has been an innovator, pioneer and trendsetter in the world of champagne.

In the early 1800s, the young widow Madame Clicquot took the reigns of the house after her husband’s passing. Her vision and skill established Veuve Clicquot as a leading champagne producer. She championed novel techniques like rémuage, the process of turning and tilting bottles to consolidate lees. Her developments set the standard for producing crystal clear champagne.

That pioneering spirit continues to drive Veuve Clicquot today. Its prestigious vineyard holdings span over 500 acres, with many plots classified as Grand or Premier Cru. These prime sites impart depth and character to Veuve Clicquot‘s cuvées. In the cellars, winemaking prioritizes balance, consistency and aging potential.

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label – Elegance Defined

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut encapsulates the house style. First created in 1818, it is the definitive Veuve Clicquot cuvée. Yellow Label is crafted primarily from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, with a touch of Chardonnay. The blend utilises over 50 different Crus to create complexity. After initial fermentation, Yellow Label undergoes a second fermentation in bottle and extended lees aging. This traditional Méthode Champenoise yields the signature fine bubbles and depth of flavour. Yellow Label ages for over three years in Veuve Clicquot’s historic chalk cellars.

Tasting Note

On the nose,  Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label offers refined aromas of apple, brioche, white peach and honeysuckle.

The palate delivers baked apple flavours, with accents of gingerbread, lemon curd and brioche.

Crisp acidity and minerality provide tension, leading into an elegantly long finish.

With remarkable balance, complexity and consistent quality, it’s easy to see why Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label remains the quintessential champagne. Pop the cork to taste over two centuries of winemaking mastery.
