Editorial Reviews for Veuve Cliqout Ponsardin Brut
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.
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.
Acidic and fruity. Decent bubbles, but very soft.
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 Veuve Cliqout Ponsardin Brut
Thereandrsquo;s plenty of finesse in this smooth-textured Champagne, whose flavors evoke apricot, peach, vanilla pastry and mineral. Racy, with snappy acidity providing energy and driving the flavors to a long conclusion. Drink now through 2012.
Every year, sommeliers in Americaandrsquo;s top restaurants tell us that Clicquotandrsquo;s Yellow Label is the most popular Champagne. Itandrsquo;s easy to understand why, given the richness of the reserve wines in the blend, which add heft to a fresh bubbly.
Lemon, spice and a leesy complexity on the nose. Rich, full and creamy in the mouth, with a biscuity nuance. Strong acidity contributes to the impression of dryness. Finishes clean and strong, with strong fruit. A superb non-vintage brut release from this house.
Features wonderful flavors of green apples and pears; aromas of honeysuckle; an elegant wine.
A full-bodied Champagne, this has been enriched by reserve wines to add depth and smoky lees intensity to its brisk, youthful elements. Itandrsquo;s a satisfying Brut to serve with poached prawns.

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.
