Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut NV Gift Boxed
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.

Very complex, intense aromas. Fresh fruited but showing honey, marzipan, brioche of autolysis. Layered and moussey in the palate, but bright, fresh, fine acidity. Light, brisk and squeaky. Finishes pretty short but has a decided delicacy. Feels drier and crunchier than recent forays into this wine, the gentle tweak of dosage showing its hand? I guess. Lovely to drink, effortless, though feels a little bony and thin. Still, this is shiny and good.
