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.
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
Thereandrsquo;s a tight, floral raspberry essence at the center of this wine, its fruitiness held by brisk, flinty acidity that keeps the finish mouthwatering. A firm wine for poached salmon.
Hints of toast and biscuit accent lightly honeyed flavors of quince, apple blossom and peach in this fresh and balanced Champagne. Thereandrsquo;s a stony underpinning, with a smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2013.
The ideal temperature for a nomadic lifestyle... Just like a wet suit, the Clicquot Ice Jacket covers your bottle of Brut Yellow Label, keeping your champagne as cool as it should be. It is the perfect fit, wrapping the bottle with its hi-tech styling and more than a touch of ’haute couture’. Slide in your bottle of Brut Yellow Label, cooled to tasting temperature, and it will stay fresh for two hours, wherever your may be..
As fresh as biting into a crisp green apple, this wine rounds out the firm, limestone-inflected acidity of Champagne with the fullness of its dosage. Itandrsquo;s not sweet, but it has the richness of a meringue, finishing tense and sparkly. For aperitifs.
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.
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.
