You will like to know that…

The Clicquot House was founded in 1772, creating the first recorded vintage champagne in 1810. The trademark yellow label was chosen because it was an unusual and eye-catching colour at the time. First appearing in 1877, the distinctive yellow label became something that distinguished the house, so that customers could return to the brand they knew and loved.

That yellow label lives on today with Veuve Clicquot Brut Magnum. This signature blend is recreated each year with from 50 to 60 different wines, 30 to 45% of which are reserve wines. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Meunier all work together to create the elegant, well-rounded champagne the world has loved for centuries. After a minimum of three years of ageing, this champagne is ready to enjoy.

Aromatic, fresh, and powerful, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is a golden-yellow wine with persistent, tiny bubbles. Perfect to enjoy as an aperitif and strong enough to enjoy with savoury foods, have a bottle of Veuve Clicquot ready for your next gathering. It is sure to bring a touch of luxury and make any moment more memorable. Let the yellow label lead you into making the same decision that wine lovers have been making for centuries: the correct one.

Description of Veuve Clicquot Brut Magnum

Veuve Clicquot Brut Magnum (Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: A beautiful color, golden yellow reflexes, fine lather.
  • Nose: powerful and pleasant, fruity at first (white fruits, nuts), then finally avainillada and sweet-scented bread. Ideal balance between the aromas of grape varieties (fruit) and the aromas of aging in bottle (pastries).
  • Mouth: On the palate, the attack is frank and dynamic, then giving way to a fruity harmony. The wine has some structure, which allows its classification in the family the Bruts structured and vinous. Persistence is extraordinary aromatic with fruity notes and spicy at the same time.

APPELLATION: Champagne

VINEYARD: Veuve Clicquot

GRAPES: Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir

The Winery

Veuve Clicquot

Veuve Clicquot

Who was the first to think of using the old quarries to stock champagne bottles? Although it is difficult to say, Veuve Clicquot did take advantage of the opportunity to increase cellaring space for its wines. In 1909, the House bought some magnificent chalk cellars, located on the Saint-Nicaise hills, which today enjoy new life as ageing cellars.

Veuve Clicquot Brut Carte Jaune Magnum

4 /5

- A Champagne House is eventually judged on the quality of its Brut Non Vintage. It is in the making of such a wine that the true Art of Champagne blending reveals itself.
- This is an art in which the House of Veuve Clicquot excels. Our Brut Yellow Label reflects the superb vineyards we own and the consistent nature of our House style. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend. Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine.
- Grapes from as many as 50 to 60 different Crus go to the blending of Yellow Label. Traditionally, the proportion of each grape variety used is : 50 to 55% Pinot Noir - 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier - 28 to 33% Chardonnay.
- These figures vary slightly from year to year according to conditions. The Chef de Caves has to achieve the total consistency of taste, which makes Yellow Label so immediately recognisable, so utterly reliable both in terms of quality, colour and bouquet.
- He will draw on priceless Reserve wines for the blend: from 25 to 35%, sometimes as much as 40% to ensure the continuity of the House style. Each of these older wines - perhaps 9 years old - is kept separately to preserve the unique qualities of the vineyard and the vintage.
- First, Yellow Label looks beautiful: golden-yellow, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. Next it is so pleasing to the nose: initially reminiscent of white fruits and raisins, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas following the ageing in the bottle.
- The first sip delivers all the freshness and forcefulness so typical of Yellow Label with a symphony of fruit tastes following on. Here is a true member of the powerful Brut family, well structured, admirably vinous. The lingering aromas echo and re-echo, with each fruit or spice note distinct.
- Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label manages to reconcile two opposing factors - forcefulness and finesse - and to hold them in perfect balance. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the Champagne to enjoy with a meal.
