Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Champagne (from a private collection)

SKU #1371046 90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Veuve's 'yellow label' non-vintage Champagne is perhaps the region's most recognisable. It's a blend of around 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, from up to 60 different crus. The doughy base shows a hint of creaminess, layered with light and fresh flavours of lemon, orange peel, razor-sharp green apples and a steely, mineral finish. Quintessential Champagne and a great aperitif thanks to its light-footed style. (JB) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

John Gilman

Outer quote mark The new release of Veuve Clicquot’s Yellow Label bottling of non-vintage Brut is approximately a blend of fifty percent pinot noir, twenty percent pinot meunier and thirty percent chardonnay. The wine offers up a bright and precise bouquet of lemon, apple, bread dough, a nice touch of minerality and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and nicely balanced, with a good core, pinpoint bubbles, good backend mineral drive and a long, brisk and focused finish. This is not the most complex non-vintage Brut on the market, but it has moved up dramatically in quality from where it was ten years ago and is a harbinger of even better things to come from this Grand Maison in the not too distant future.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The VC brand ambassador, the NV Brut Yellow Label (an assemblage of 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier) is currently based on the 2012 vintage and contains 35% reserve wines. On the nose, ripe and intense (yellow-fleshed) fruit aromas intermix with a very nice maturity from the reserve wines. Disgorged in January 2015 with a dosage of nine grams, this is a medium-bodied, yet round and full-flavored Brut. It possesses biscuit and nutty flavors, and a nice freshness and complexity in the intense, aromatic finish. Indeed, this is very delicate and impressively good. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2016)
