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.

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!

The dosage level is 45g/l, which makes this wine a bit sweet, but not cloying. Toast and candied citron aromas and some honeyed apple and lemon flavors. Decanting reduces the apparent acidity, thereby raising the perception of sweetness.

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. Itrsquo;s not sweet, but it has the richness of a meringue, finishing tense and sparkly. For aperitifs.

Founded by Francois Clicquot in 1772, Veuve Clicquot reached its first pinnacle of fame with the widow Nicole-Barbe Clicquot, who scouted out some impressive vineyard sites during the 19th century. Jacques Peters, who is now in charge of the estate, crafts one of Champagneandrsquo;s best nonvintage Bruts by enriching the Yellow Label with up to 40 percent of older wines from the firmandrsquo;s reserve stock. Nutty scents of yeast develop into chalkier mineral flavors as the wine opens with air. It has a fresh scent of narcissus to balance the more mature tones of its reserve wines. Itandrsquo;s rich enough for food, but also easy to enjoy on its own.

There'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.

The NV Brut offers up attractive notes of smoke, tar, rich ripe pears and flowers in a medium to full-bodied style. There is a good measure of persistence, although the wine could use a little more polish on the finish. This is Lot 14009913, disgorged between December, 2007 and January, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2010.

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>
