Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne Jeroboam (3L)

SKU #991980 92 points James Suckling

 Some oyster shell, berry biscuits, fresh strawberries and gently toasty brioche here. Lots to like. The palate is plump and flavorsome with plenty of berries and citrus intertwined. Good depth here. Grapefruit finish. Drink now.  (7/2018)

91 points Wine & Spirits

 This latest release of Yellow Label impressed our panel with the clarity of its flavors and their concentrated intensity. It’s rich and substantial, a meal in a glass, with flavors of cider apple, salty lemon and bitter lime pith. A satisfying aperitif.  (12/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

 A well-cut and lacy Champagne in an elegant, aperitif style, with hints of chalk and graphite underscoring the lively Honeycrisp apple, cherry and lemon curd flavors. Offers a sleek, minerally finish. Drink now through 2021. (AN)  (11/2018)

90 points Decanter

 Champagne's second most prolific house, Veuve Clicquot sells an estimates 19 million bottles per year of its iconic yellow label. This generously proportioned Pinot Noir-based Champagne was a clear favourite among many of the judges. With up to 45% reserve wine and over 30 months on the lees, it offers pleasing buttery, berry scone nuances and a frothy, persistent mousse. While the dosage has been reined in slightly in recent years, it remains at the higher end of the Brut spectrum. (MM)  (10/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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)  (6/2016)

Wine Enthusiast

 The ubiquitous Yellow Label follows the house style of the producer with richness and a soft texture. These are balanced by plenty of acidity that gives the wine an immediately attractive character, ripe and fruity while also crisp. Drink now. (RV)  (12/2018)

Additional Information:

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
