Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut
Non-Vintage Sparkling Wine from Champagne, France
Veuve Clicquot's Yellow Label Brut reflects the superb vineyards they own and the consistent nature of their House style.
The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine.
James Suckling - 92 points
Some oyster shell, berry biscuits, fresh strawberries and gently toasty brioche here. Lots to like. The palate is plump and flavorsome with plenty of berries and citrus intertwined. Good depth here. Grapefruit finish.
Wine Spectator - 90 points
This is tightly knit and racy, with a spicy underpinning and a clean-cut mix of poached pear, grated ginger and pink grapefruit zest. An aperitif style, showing a crisp, lacy finish.
