Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut NV 3L Jeroboam
Founded in 1772, Veuve Clicquot has since lived by its motto, "Only one quality, the finest". "Yellow Label" is its signature champagne, defining the Veuve Clicquot style through a perfect balance of strength, aromatic intensity, freshness & silkiness. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure while the addition of 30 to 45% of priceless Reserve Wines will ensure the year-on-year consistency that is so typically Clicquot.
Yellow and white fruits on the nose, then notes of vanilla and later of brioche. Freshness and strength on the palate while pear and lemon tastes appear with an admirably vinous finish. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or almond notes distinct. Ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal.

Light, bright yellow colour. Subdued bouquet with a nice toasty bread character, the palate light and lean-ish, with a clean dry finish and aftertaste. Some nice complexity, and fresh acidity to finish. A very enjoyable wine.
Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
Perfume is actually very attractive, very complex, you can see the detail, mix of floral, nuttiness, brioche complex, gently sweet but shifting into savoury with a squeeze of citrus through too. Light and creamy in texture, but with enough pep and freshness to encourage drinking. Sweetness is here, builds with a gently cloy, but it fits with briskness of fizz, smoothness of bead and drinkability. Finishes with a briny freshness. Easy going.
