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
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
Cliquotandrsquo;s Yellow Label is consistently one of the best non-vintage Bruts from the major houses in Champagne. The current release bristles with fresh apple flavor, with the scent of heirloom apples off the tree. That flavor runs straight through the wine, savory and clean, with a firmness for boudin blanc with roast apples.
Round, ripe and lemony, itandrsquo;s more like a very good California sparkler than fine Champagne. Tasty, fruity and approachable, but missing the refinement and the texture that elevates the very top Champagnes.
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.
( 60) Salmon skin color. Energetic floral nose offers finely etched apple and pomegranate scents along with delicate mineral and jasmine nuances. Dry stony and fresh with precise fairly deep pear rhubarb and subtle red berry flavors. Finishes on a dusty mineral note with very good length. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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.
