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.

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.

This is a great Aperitif Champagne - not too rich and yeasty, but elegant, crisp and citrusy, wonderful with fried foods!

The big, full-bodied, non-vintage Champagne in a half-bottle. Cheers!

Cliquot’s signature Brut non-vintage is loved the world over for its crisp, full flavors, consistent quality and celebratory yellow label. Complex and intense nose of apple, citrus and caramel balance elegantly with a spicy lingering aftertaste and a fine persistent sparkle. This classically styled, dry champagne is excellent with food and also as an apèritif.

Bright yellow-gold. Poached pear and candied citrus fruits on the nose, which shows notes of spun sugar and toffee. Sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors are slightly cloying and loose-knit, with slow-mounting spiciness. Finishes on a warm note, with decent length and a suggestion of candied orange.

A beautiful pinot noir, simple and lovely in its quiet strawberry fruit. This rosandeacute; has the same mouthfilling presence as the Yellow Label Brut, sweet in the middle, brisk and clean in the end.

Round, ripe and lemony, it’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.

Winemaker's Notes:

NV | FRANCE | Champagne

Tasting Notes:

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.

<p>Widow Clicquot was a master craftsman who was exclusively devoted to &nbsp;Champagne. The Clicquot brand only signs wines which are completely elaborated by the cellar master, Jacques Peters. Grapes must be picked by hand throughout the Champagne region.</p>
