Veuve Clicquot Champagne1.5L MAGNUM CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier French Champagnes, Reims France
Veuve Clicquot can be judged on the quality of its Brut non vintage. It is in the making of such a wine that the true Art of Champagne reveals itself. This is an art in which the House of Veuve Clicquot excels. Yellow Label reflects the superb vineyards and the consistent nature of the House style. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that declares itself as Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the palate. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse, essential to such a perfectly balanced wine.

Grapes from as many as sixty different Crus go to the crafting of Brut Yellow Label. Traditionally, the components are at least fifty percent Pinot Noir, up to twenty percent Pinot Meunier, and up to a third of Chardonnay, varying slightly from year to year according to conditions. The Cellar Master has to achieve the total consistency of taste, which makes Brut Yellow Label so immediately recognisable, so utterly reliable both in terms of quality, colour and bouquet. He will draw on priceless reserve wines for the blend, sometimes as much as 40% to ensure the continuity of the House style. Each of these older wines, averaging ninety years, are kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of the vineyard and the vintage.
Golden yellow, a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. So pleasing to the nose, reminiscent of white fruits and raisin, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the ageing in the bottle. The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo, each fruit or spice note distinct.
