The Cuvée

Grapes from 50 to 60 different crus, or growing areas, are used to produce the Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label :

  • 50 to 55% Pinot Noir ensures the structure so typical of the House wines.
  • 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend.
  • 28 à 33% Chardonnay provides the elegance and sophistication essential to a perfectly balanced wine.

A high proportion of priceless reserve wines (between 25% and 40%) ensures the continuity of the House style.

 

Yellow Label

The strength of this golden-yellow wine is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes on the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to age in the bottle. Brut Carte Jaune offers a perfect balance of finesse and forcefulness.

Winexperts - November 2011

“APPEARANCE - clear, bright with tiny, plentiful and persistant bubbles. NOSE - gorgeous yeasty aromas of fresh bread and vanilla. FLAVOUR - a full-bodied, rich, deep champagne with ripe apple flavours. A long, creamy finish.”

Gilbert & Gaillard - April 2012

“Pale lemon colour. The nose begins with fruity notes reminiscent of pear flesh, with discreet biscuity notes in the background. The palate is clean and fresh with a fine texture. A great classic that lives up to its name, perfect for an apéritif or to be enjoyed throughout the evening.”

Wine spectator - December 2012

“Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note. Drink now though 2022.”
