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
Red fruit character comes forward in the aroma and initial flavors, enriching the taste and filling out the smoky complexity. There's a sweetness to that fruit balanced by a chalkiness, completely Champagne. Yellow Label is refined, super non-vintage Brut.
Every year, sommeliers in America's top restaurants tell us that Clicquot's Yellow Label is the most popular Champagne. It's easy to understand why, given the richness of the reserve wines in the blend, which add heft to a fresh bubbly.
Like a sweeter version of a good blanc de blancs, with graphite, honey and lemon notes that mix with the richness and lively acidity. Moderate length. Drink now. -BS
Perfumed scents of lemon curd, white peach, brioche and white flowers. Silky flavors of apple, pear and flint have exquisite balance. Tart close shows lots of citrus.
Food Pairings for Veuve Cliqout Ponsardin Brut
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.
