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.
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.

Hints of toast and biscuit accent lightly honeyed flavors of quince, apple blossom and peach in this fresh and balanced Champagne. There's a stony underpinning, with a smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2013.
Ultimately, the reputation of a great Champagne house is based in its skill in blending a consistently fine 'flagship' wine, rather than the vintage Champagnes, which follow exceptional weather. In Champagne, the style of a House is always more significant than the style of a single year, so the re-known of Veuve Clicquot is measured by the ongoing performance of Yellow Label. Veuve Clicquot has every reason for confidence.Yellow Label is a blend of unvarying quality, always fully mature, always perfectly balanced. Admired across the world, it owes its excellence to a superb holding of vineyards founded by Madame Clicquot and added to over two centuries. These produce the great 'crus' of reserve wines which that oenological genius, Jacques Peters, can call on when he finalises the blend. In Britain, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label has become famous as "The Champagne of The Season", an essential part of the British summer. What better symbol could th...
Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note. Drink now through 2022. -AN Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Non Vintage Brut 750ml
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is a perfect example of harmony between delicacy and power. Dominated by Pinot Noir, this wine has a firm structure, rounded with a touch of Pinot Meunier. Nearly a third of Chardonnay gives it the elegance and finesse needed for perfect balance.

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.
