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.
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)
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)
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. (Drink between 2017-2030)
The latest rendition of the NV Brut Yellow Label offers up aromas of toasty, honeyed yellow orchard fruit and white flowers, followed by a medium-bodied, open-knit palate with tangy acids, a youthfully frothy mousse and pure if somewhat brief finish. This isn't as powerful as the 2008 Grande Dame, but it's livelier; indeed, based on these examples, there isn't much qualitative gap between the two. Given the quantity produced, this is a creditable effort. (WK)
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)
