Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut Yellow Label

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut Yellow Label

750ML          
Sku: 002355

Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label is a perfect example of harmony between delicacy and power. Dominated by Pinot Noir, this wine has a firm structure, rounded with a touch of Pinot Meunier. Nearly one third Chardonnay gives it the elegance and finesse needed for perfect balance.

A blend of fifty crus, mainly Grands and Premiers Crus. Consistent quality due to 25 to 35% reserve wines.

There's plenty of finesse in this smooth-textured Champagne, whose flavors evoke apricot, peach, vanilla pastry and mineral. Racy, with snappy acidity providing energy and driving the flavors to a long conclusion. Drink now through 2012. –BS

The dominantly tart apple character of Clicquots 2004 Brut makes for a piquant and invigorating if somewhat raw overall impression, incorporating as well overt yeastiness and hints of almond, apple pip, and lemon rind. Insofar as there are impressions here that I would deem “mineral, these are a faintly sweaty and slightly metallic note in the finish, which manage to fit the wines brash personality. I dont fancy this gaining from bottle age, though I readily confess my lack of experience with older representatives.
One of the most familiar of Champagnes, the Yellow Label is finely made-a fruity while structured wine. It has both fresh and fragrant fruit as well as richness, a soft, creamy texture and bright acidity. There is no sense in bottle aging here-drink this wine because of its crispness.
