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.
Really smooth, plenty of small bubbles and a very nice sweet taste which goes down so easily.
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!
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. Thereandrsquo;s a sweetness to that fruit balanced by a chalkiness, completely Champagne. Yellow Label is refined, super non-vintage Brut.
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.
Veuve Clicquot Demi Sec is creamy, with a touch of sweetness. Veuve Clicquot's Demi-Sec (the classic accompaniment to dessert) is equally pleasing as an apTritif. This stylish blend is evocative of the wine Madame Clicquot herself produced in
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.
Demi-Sec is blended largely from Pinot Noir with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier as well as reserve wines. The liqueur d'expedition (carefully prepared and dosed with 45 g per litre by our oenologists) gives it a sweeter yet still very fresh
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.
