So far, we have discussed the most popular champagne house- Veuve Clicquot. We’ve explored how it became one of the world’s most recognizable brands under Madame Clicquot’s guidance and its inventions for the industry. But now it’s time to discuss their signature drink, Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label. This sparkling wine is a dazzling representation of their wines’ brilliance and impeccable quality.
This signature wine that has been under production for 149 years, blending 50 to 60 crus and reserve wines together. Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label reflects its exquisite vineyards and replicates the house style as exceptional as it can be.
It’s hard to imagine Pinot Noir dominating a bottle of champagne, but that’s what provides its core structure. Still, we can’t overstate how elegant and silky the flavor will come through because of the Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier blend! It takes around three years’ aging time for it all to gain its silkiness.
This wine has a light golden appearance with small bubbles giving it an air of crispiness. Its aromatic intensity is pleasant, with notes of biscuits, pears, vanilla, and blueberries, followed by the aroma of quiche. It finishes off with the buttery smell and taste one would find in brioche bread, along with white fruits. You can also detect the toasty aromas that come from its three-year aging process, which rounds out this wine. This process gives the wine balance and intense aromas without overpowering your palate, retaining freshness and fruity aromas to make you want more than just one glass at a time.
From its popularity to its ability to please, Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label is one of the top Champagnes (see also: Veuve Clicquot Luminous Champagne Rose)in the world. It pairs well with many kinds of food, and works as an aperitif at any time of day. Cheers!
