Pleasing to the nose, reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche. The aroma lingers on the palate, with each spice or fruit note very distinct. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors, forcefulness and finesse, and holds them in perfect balance.
'Only one quality, the finest'. This is the motto of the House of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, founded in 1772. This cuvée bears the famous 'Clicquot Yellow' label, a symbol of excellence.
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is the ultimate reflection of the superb vineyards and consistent nature of the house style. Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus go into the blending of Brut Yellow Label and The Chef de Caves draws on priceless reserve wines to achieve the total consistency of quality and taste.
Founded in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot, the house was later taken over by his widow Madame Clicquot at the age of 27 in 1810. Through determination, intuition and acumen Madame Clicquot not only created the first recorded vintage in the champagne region but built up the Veuve Clicquot property to make it one of the foremost vineyards in all of Champagne.
Produced in Champagne, a small wine producing region in the northeast of France. Maison Veuve Clicquot is located in Reims, the largest city in the Champagne province.
