Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label NV Champagne

"Veuve Clicquot is a big house where we have a big responsibility to maintain the style, but every day we work to improve the quality." Chef de Cave, Dominique Demarville explains the production ethos behind Veuve's characterful, full-bodied, pinot-focused wines. Privileged to a respectable 382 hectare estate, with facilities to envy; including multiple foudres of 5000 and 7500 litres, the house runs a huge operation in Reims. As testaments of the House's most enduring values, its reserve wines are among the most precious in the palette of Demarville.

A predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, while a touch of Meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine. Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus go to the blending of Yellow Label. Traditionally, the proportion of each grape variety used is 50 to 55% Pinot Noir, 15 to 20% Meunier and 28 to 33% Chardonnay. Each new release varies depending on the amounts of reserve wines and the latest release vintage. Demarville uses 25 to 35% sometimes as much as 40% to ensure the continuity of the House style.

Yellow Label has a fine bead of bubbles present in a golden yellow colour. On the nose, white fruits and nicely balanced citrus notes. On the palate, the Pinot Noir dominance shines through but it completed by the delicate Chardonnay. Ripe fruits and some hints of brioche.

“Tasted blind. Came 11th out of 12 in the tasting. Pale straw gold. Light, complex nose. Good savour. Some smokiness. Really neat and tight. Lots of potential. Some appley acidity and really clean on the end. Very complex on the end. Full of vitality. One of the most youthful wines in this dozen. Delicate bead. ”

“(roughly 50% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 20% pinot meunier; Lot 14009913): Light gold. Musky orchard fruits and dried fig on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering smoky pear and nectarine flavors and a hint of honey. Finishes on a gently spicy note, with very good cling and a touch of bitter lemon pith. Things have definitely begun to turn around for this bottling, which had been lagging behind the winery's vintage offerings for some time.”
