Editorial Reviews for Champagne Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Yellow Label
With a slightly cheesy note on the nose that, along with the patissiere tones, recalls cheese Danish this offers good complexity with ample yellow fruit and floral tones. Classic Veuve on the palate, a touch sweet, soft, caressing and easy with plenty of yellow fruit in a somewhat simple package. 88pts
A good quality Champagne... but don't get caught in the marketing hype. Sometimes it can be extremely yeasty on the nose and palate. I prefer the French-market version, which you can find in magnums here in the US.
Acidic and fruity. Decent bubbles, but very soft.
Rather nutty and slighty yeasty nose. I'm not a real Champagne fan, but this is one of my favorites - not too much yeast and not too acidic. I like it.
Very nice brioche toast nose. Bright and lively dry fruits on the mouth, and green apple notes on the medium finish.
Crisp and bubbly...delicious!
This is a great Aperitif Champagne - not too rich and yeasty, but elegant, crisp and citrusy, wonderful with fried foods!
Good champagne, if you can find it at a good price. I wouldn't pay $42/bottle for it.
External Reviews for Champagne Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Yellow Label
This strikes a nice balance between fruit and sweetness, retaining plenty of fresh fruity acid structure.
A nice crisp structure focuses the graphite, honey and citrus flavors. This is rich, but remains smooth and elegant, with a lingering aftertaste of honey and pastry. Drink now.
This glamorous internatiolan leader among Champagnes is appreciated for its generous style soming from a wide deversity of vineyard origins (50 or 60, far above the average) which contribute to its complexity and consistency. Pinot Noir accounts for half or more of the blend with one third Chardonnay and a lesser amount of Pinot Meunier. Offers a pleasing harmony of fresh white fruits with notes of vanilla and pastry.
Has a lovely fragrance of spice and citrus that is faintly toasty. The creamy flavors of spice and citrus have yeasty nuances and a crisp finish.
A champagne House is eventually judged on the quality of its Brut non vintage. It is in the making of such a wine that the true Art of Champagne blending reveals itself. This is an art in which the House of Veuve Clicquot excels. Our Brut Yellow Label reflects the superb vineyards we own and the consistent nature of our 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.
The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with asymphony of fruit tastes following on. Here is a true member of the powerful Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice note distinct. Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - forcefulness and finesse - and to hold them in perfect balance. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal.
