A 75cl bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV is delivered in mesh ice jacket that once frozen can keep your Veuve Clicquot cool for two hours.

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

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 50-55% Pinot Noir, 28-33% Chardonnay, 15-20% Pinot Meunier
Reserve Wine: 25-40%
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Dosage: 10 g/l
Drink: Now to 2021

Tasting Note: This has a fine bead of bubbles present with a golden yellow colour. On the nose: white fruits and nicely balanced citrus notes. On the palate: the Pinot Noir dominance shines through but is balanced perfectly by the delicate Chardonnay. Ripe fruits and some hints of brioche on the finish. A great non-vintage.
